On a road trip once, I stumbled upon a quilting convention. They were incredibly loud and well-saturated with cosmopolitans, so, I did what I could to protect the other guests. I drank their booze, then returned to my room and locked the door.

After a while, the banging on the door turned to scratching, and I found their calls for Esther's dentures back to be almost soothing.

Well, to be fair, you are dealing with the parents of 7 year old cheerleaders.

Jumping Jesus on a pogo stick, that region of Dallas has about 9 thousand hotel rooms strewn about the former dusty plain. Get in your damn rental car and go get one.

Whining b*tch.

I'm not sure what would be worse: a hotel filled with furries or a hotel filled with cheerleader moms.

So now we greenlight TripAdvisor reviews? I can't wait to see the Yelp review greenlight for the Burger King in Bumfark, Montana -- I hear that it actually has someone's day ruined simply by having other people eating, the horror!

I work at a hotel.. drunken wedding guests are bad enough.  Keep it in the lobby, or go to bed.. don't party in the room, your neighbor may have to get up at 5 am.

The weekend following Valentines Day - the hubby and I went on a trip with a group of mostly homosexual couples (we were the only straight ones). The hotel placed us on the same floor that a religious conference was being held.

The looks were priceless. Especially when we all emerged in club attire.

One tip for this mother:

Don't go to Pittsburgh in June (or whenever they hold that convention)

That sounds like a flipplin nightmare for anyone without a windowless van.

baka-san: I'm not sure what would be worse: a hotel filled with furries or a hotel filled with cheerleader moms.


I'm going to agree.  I've been around cheerleader moms in person, and they all seemed so fake, always going on about the benefits they were hosting and other crap, with this frightening undertone of a complete lack of will, like everything they did was because something outside them was compelling them to do it.

The furries I've encountered, admittedly only on-line, seem to be fairly genuine, with a sense of humour about themselves, and if they get into angry shouting matches half as much in real life as they do in person - hey. dinner AND a show!
 
2013-02-24 09:54:26 AM  
Can't wait to see the yiff brigade come out with all the "this is racism" crap. Furries have a persecution complex on par with republicans. Fortunately, furries are less vocal then them.
 
2013-02-24 09:54:28 AM  
My daughter is a middle school cheerleader.  Honestly, I'd prefer the furries to cheer moms.  They are rabid and most of them need to be put down.  You can reason with a furry.

Happened to us in CT in Sept. It was great! The older people I was travelling with had no idea what was.going on. They were nice enough and it was entertaining to watch them.

I once had to go to Dallas for work and ended up in a hotel that was also hosting a cheer convention. Have to say, from the kids to the mothers, some of the worst people in the world.

Did smitty happen to copy the original review? She says she modified it at TripAdvisor's request, and I wonder what she changed.

Methinks this woman is full of shiat.  My guess is that she and her snowflakes got there, saw a few people who were dressed in fursuits and freaked out.  How many people do you know who randomly swear at children?  Unless you grew up in my house not many.  And the claim that she never saw the general manager, I guarantee that if the furries were making that much of a ruckus that manager would be there in a heartbeat with cops in tow to calm the fur love-in down.

And if she thinks that's bad try going to New Orleans on Labor Day weekend.  On your honeymoon.

Nice try, subby. The review was from a cheer DAD...named Tony.

Guess she didn't feel it was necessary to find a synonym to "ineptitude", because it makes her sound upper class.

I fail to see what could be more degrading than being booked in the same hotel as a cheerleader convention.
 
2013-02-24 10:04:06 AM  
What I get form the review is that in her mind, "Latin America, Europe and Asia" are shiatholes.
 
2013-02-24 10:04:19 AM  
She doubted the furries' commitment to Sparkle Motion.

First of all, I like to bring up the ineptitude of the groups department on scheduling a Furry Convention of unacceptable adults

The hotel should have known that a "Furry Convention of unacceptable adults" was going to be trouble!

My 10 year old daughter and my 8 year old son witnessed lude and lascivious behavior

So apparently this was a cheer competition for girls AND BOYS cheerleading. Allowing your pre-teen girl to cheer is evil enough, and with therapy she might come out ok, but an 8-year old boy? I'm sorry Dad (and apparently this TripAdvisor review is by a man, 'Tony A') but if your 8-year-old boy is a cheerleader then he's well on his way to becoming a Furry himself.

Wow, reading through these comments it's clear that Fark has LOTS of furries and furry apologists. Yikes. As if most of you weren't pathetic enough already.

I once stayed at a hotel with a My Little Pony Convention going on. The first person we saw in the lobby was a large muscular man wearing a shiny purple cocktail dress and unicorn horn. My dad had no idea what was going on, but he had a great time people watching

For our first anniversary, we went to Biloxi (we were young, we were poor, shut up, you don't know me).  This was before the days of Beau Rivage, so the big four-star hotels didn't exist.  We stayed at a beach front resort.  What we didn't know was that a dog show was in town, and a lot of the participants were staying at our hotel, one of the few "pet friendly" places.

The noise!

The smell!

I would have given my left nut to have been in a hotel with a furry convention instead

(Once decided not to stay at a hotel in Vegas because the Lifestyle convention was there.  I'm sure they're nice people, but I wasn't really interested in seeing a bunch of fat, middle aged swingers drunkenly groping each other all weekend . . . I get enough of that at home, thank you).

I know it can be annoying to be staying at a hotel at the same time as a convention.

When I was a kid, we took a family vacation to Gatlinburg.  Apparently the hotel was having some kind of motorcycle convention that weekend.  We heard the sounds of revving motorcycles and loud partying all weekend.

What is worse is when the hotel decides to sabotage the convention because they don't like it.

Apparently, in the mid '90's, FOX decided it wanted a sci-fi space action/adventure TV series.  Dirk Benedict had been shopping around to build support for a Battlestar Galactica revival.  (Note, this is almost a decade before the new BSG reboot), and would be a continuation of the late 70's series (and ignoring the Galactica 1980 spinoff).

FOX was interested in the idea, partly in the idea it had a ready-built fanbase they could use.  Name recognition and existing fanbase they thought would be good for ratings.  What it would take to seal the deal would be actually showing the network execs just how much fandom existed and how much support was out there.  Again, the early days of the web, so it was hard to just point to a big online community.

So, there was going to be a big convention for Battlestar Galactica.  A 15th anniversary deal as I recall, circa 1994.  The execs just had to see it was big and they'd sign for a new series.

They had booked a hotel for the convention, and had lots of attendees booked for the convention and most of the surviving cast were going to be there as guests.  The problem was that some exec at the hotel chain was getting married that weekend, and he was doing it at one of his hotels.  That one.  He didn't want a bunch of fanboys running around mucking up his wedding.

So, the desk staff started "losing" reservations.  Basically whenever fans showed up to check in and it was clear they were there for the convention, their reservation was "lost" and they wouldn't have any rooms available.  Lots of fans were turned away, and a good number of the invited guests were refused as well.

Dirk Benedict himself was apparently turned away, told they had no idea about any convention going on.  He was walking out of the hotel when he spotted a fan in the lobby in costume as a Colonial pilot, which got him to stay around.  Don't know about where he roomed since they said they didn't have space for him.

Obviously, the convention was a disaster, with only a tiny fraction of the attendance they had pre-registered and most of the guests not there.  When the network execs showed up, instead of the thriving display of fandom they were promised, it was an anemic, pathetic little get-together.

The Galactica revival was scrapped, FOX filled their interest in a space-actions series with Space: Above and Beyond.

. . .all because a hotel exec didn't want his wedding at the same place as a convention.

What an excellent comparison. Because this review is obviously completely mundane and totally not out of the ordinary like your hypothetical Burger King review.

I give both these posts -a billionty yelps and I DEMAND to speak to the manager! I mean I can literally smell the week old jizz fermenting under these guys man gunts. This is supposed to be a 3 and half star website. I expect MORE for my zero dollars admission fee!

I actually preferred the next review:

When I stay at a 3 star and above hotel I EXPECT a HDTV
 I reported that the drink machine was broke on the 4 th floor and that it took my money. Nobody investigated it!
 I spent 30 minutes trying to find the Green Bay vs. Minnesota game Sunday.
If you do go to this hotel do not buy anything from the gift shop if chubby indian girl is working the register
I had to call the front desk with my cell phone however I got transfered to reservations then put on infinite hold
 
2013-02-24 10:18:21 AM  
...And now, someone is going to go see who got married that weekend in that city, cross reference it to known hotel executives, then go to their house and poop on the lawn or something.  A really rancid, watery, "my god what did I eat that my body created such a horror" poop the likes of which the world has not seen before or since.
