Never trust a hotel that…
- Uses coat hangers you can’t remove from the rack. Have they ever tried to hang things on these hangers without major contortions?
- Sells Internet usage via password slips you have to buy at the reception. I really, really hate this kind of approach. Not only do the staff rarely tell you this when you check in, so you have to traipse back down to reception to buy your Internet time, you then have to type in some fiddly password and username involving lower, upper case letters. And then, as just happened, the slip issuing printer breaks, so suddenly you can’t access the Internet at all. Hotels: Either let users sign on in their rooms, or, even better, give your Internet away for free. It makes guests happy, and means they’ll be working from the room (rather than the office, or Starbucks) and be ordering lots of room service.
- “Charges for outside calls after 10 rings”. I have no idea what this means but it’s on the phone next to me. They charge for a call that doesn’t get answered?
- Only has a shower installed, and no bath. This is just me. I like a bath. Otherwise I write cranky posts like this one.
