Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

- About a block before I saw these, I had stopped to ask a young lady for directions to the Treasury Building... She laughed and said, " I have a day off work, why don't I walk with you and show you".She may have regretted that choice as I stopped to take photos along the way. But she was lovely and told me all about herself and the city around us while we walked together for a couple of blocks.
She was also quite indulgent of my need to take photos of these roos when we walked past them. What a quirky and brilliant idea! One of the roos is lounging on a seat...something no respectable roo would do...but then they wouldn't be feasting on concrete if they were real roos. :)
This is one of those delightful surprises that you are not expecting!!Written 7 August 2022
