Majestic Hotel closes

I just read in the papers that the Majestic Hotel in Ipoh will cease business operations. I was really impressed by this colonial style building. Just hope it will not be torn down to make way for new development.

I remember staying at this hotel in the 80's when I was accompanying the late Filipino master Ruben Rodriguez. We were stopping over in Ipoh on our way to Penang from Kuala Lumpur. After dinner, Ruben showed me and Collin Madhavan some of his wondorful games  in the 1979 Riga Interzonal in the former USSR.
