    Idiomatic expression

    Hello:

    I saw a sign writen the following sentence:

    " In our hotel, you get charms with the the beauty of the riverīs source"

    What does get charms with mean? Isnīt it better to say "you become fascinated by the beauty ........." ?

    Thank you,

    Silvia

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) I think that you are 100% correct: that sentence was probably written by a

    person whose first language is not English.

    (2) Your sentence is nice, and maybe something like this might reflect the writer's

    sentiment:

    At our hotel, you will be charmed by the beauty of the river's source.

    At our hotel, the beauty of the river's source will charm you.
