1 Some people will not like this, but I think hotels in general boned when the more reasonably priced ones got taken over by foreign (and by "foreign" I mean literally off the boat yesterday) ownership who seem to have no standards regarding cleanliness, maintenance, and what qualfies as a "comfortable" bed. I try to always book in advance online, and read the reviews thoroughly, but even then I find it's hit or miss. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 10:18 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 "I don't play a doormat very convincingly." And you shouldn't. Glad you got a better job out of it. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 28, 2011, 9:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Robert, I lost my last job for doing exactly that. (Well, I don't recall there being any profanity.) Luckily another hotel - a much nicer one - hired me within a couple of months. (I'm a night auditor so I don't get too many nasty-tempered customers, which is just as well because I don't play a doormat very convincingly.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 27, 2011, 4:10 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Whilst I don't travel enough to go to hotels frequently, I always make a point of being nice the people who work there. It's wise to show respect to workers no matter what business you are at, whether you're at hotels, restaurants, etc. (even if you don't get a discount or other bonus). I hate rude people who think they're royalty and thus allowed to treat people--especially workers--like garbage, and act like they're above other customers. I can imagine how tempting it must be for a worker to restrain themselves from launching a profanity-laced tirade against these jerks. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 3, 2009, 5:51 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Great testimony, Joe. I don't think hotels ever boned. By the way, I agree with you that hotel workers are also people, just like anyone else. It's a wonder that you have to adjust rates up rather down. You made a great comment. -- Submitted By: (MacFan95) on December 3, 2009, 11:45 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I never expected to see hotels as a topic. I currently work at the front desk of a local hotel and I'll throw out a couple of tips for my bone the fish buds. First, the people at the hotels, just like any service job, are people. They don't like to be yelled at or talked down to. Be nice to us and we'll be nice back, and maybe we'll throw in something extra like a small discount or something for free. If you yell or ridicule us of course we'll do the minimum for you. If you go to our website and check the prices, call the desk as well to see if the price is the same or better. Don't just assume online is the same or better because it can be different. Don't assume a travel agency or expedia is cheaper because they may not be. When you book with something like expedia they guarantee you a rate, then they send us an e-mail with the rate they gave you and we MUST give you that rate. I can tell you that I've had to adjust more rates UP than DOWN to match the guaranteed rate. I've seen people pay nearly $100 more for two nights because they went with a travel website and never called us. If you are driving in and you call for directions and I give them to you, don't argue with me. I think I know where I work. I drive here at least 5 times a week. I live here in the town I work in. I know my way around. I don't care what your precious GPS is telling you. One last tip. I do get busy checking people in and out and I may not have time to check availability and answer questions at that moment, but I will jot down your name and number and I will return your call, I promise. If you call and I tell you this, don't insist that I help you right now. I'll put you on hold for probably longer than you want to hold. I simply want to be able to call you back and have the time to help you get what you want. It's hard to do that properly when I have a lobby full of people breathing down my neck trying to check in, or out. Just a few nice tips for all you BTF fans out there. Hotels rock if you let them. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on May 16, 2009, 6:57 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
