They got details from me and then made a call to the hotel in Denver and made it good. When I heard that, it calmed me down.

You know what else calms you down?

Translated article : pothead smoked in the room, tried to claim innocence or that he did it "for the maids". I'm all for legal weed, but legal smokers still need to follow the basic smoking laws if we're honest.  Especially right now, when being respectful and civil can mean the difference between national legalization and "colorado's failed experiment"...
 
2014-04-11 07:57:25 PM
This just in: hotels will use any farking excuse to charge you for something.
 
2014-04-11 08:06:33 PM
I think the mistake was confusing Hyatt with Highyatt

2014-04-11 09:22:22 PM
When I worked as a hotel room cleaner I just smoked any weed left behind.

YOU'RE WELCOME!

I saw a website the other day with a list of weed friendly hotels.  You could have a fun long weekend in Colorado these days.  Maybe I should, it's cheap to get to.

This.  Amazing how my wife's friend in Colorado, who is one of those people who starts hacking and acting like she's about to die if anyone lights a cigarette within eyesight of her (including e-cigs), thinks she can light up a joint anyplace she feels like and can't understand why people get annoyed at her.

The raw stuff is pretty stinky and can smell up a place for a while.

FTA: "A quick call back to Denver informed him he was being charged for in-room smoking"

Yes, unfortunately some non-smoking hotels make you sign a form stating that you will not smoke (anything) in your rooms or else you will be charged a few hundred bucks. I can't say whether he was telling the truth about not smoking, but if he was, I guess he can dispute the bill.
 
2014-04-11 09:33:03 PM
I wonder if the maids get any kickback for reporting smokers rooms. A 200 surcharge for 'evidence of smoking' means the maid pretty much has to do some paperwork and turn someone in; which doesn't strike me as something they'd normally be inspired to do.
 
2014-04-11 09:34:13 PM
Tipping the maids with pot is not a smart idea, people. For all intents and purposes it is just a waste of pot. Keep your supply to yourself and go about your merry way. Celebrate the fact that you are in a state that allows you to toke up legally and try to stick to partaking of your bong/pipe/steamroller/left-handed cigarette/brownies in ways that will convince the rest of the country that legalizing marijuana is not a bad idea.

It happens. We left some on our room table on a Vegas trip, came back to find the maid had cleaned that too. We tipped her well!

This.

Most potheads don't realize this because they are use to the smell.

He did leave the pot behind.
Other states would have thrown him in jail for a few years just to learn from that mistake.

A small amount in a sealed container is not going to "stink up the room so it could not be used for two days".  Assuming he is telling the truth about smoking outside.

Yes it does, and some strains smell stronger than others. If you are a regular or heavy pot smoker you probably have been desensitized to the smell.

Damn I need to go get a job in Denver as a hotel maid.

I can certainly smell it even after a couple of hours in its raw form. I have a very sensitive nose. And I can imagine a large amount of it stinking up a room for days, especially if the weed was there for quite a while. But a small amount in a sealed container being smellable two days after its removal? Sorry, not buying it.

I'm an ex hotel GM so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies....

A few things to note. First, if you get charged for anything other than room and tax, dispute it with your credit card company. They will side with you 99% of the time. AMEX will side with the customer 100% of the time. Don't even call the hotel. Second, weed smell is gone in an hour. Some Big D and an ozone machine will usually do the trick if it's really bad. Third, cigarette smoke never goes away. It's the worst. I've kicked more than a few people out of my hotels for smoking those stupid goddamn things.

Also, why would you smoke a cigarette? You're has ally paying a company to kill you while looking like a complete douche, stinking up the planet and littering your bits everywhere. Why is that shiat even legal?

I stayed at a hotel in Olympia, Washington with some colleagues on an extended business trip. We had a little party one night and left lots of empties on the tables and dressers. The room wasn't trashed, but it was very messy.

I was running late the next morning and didn't have time to clean up, so I left $10 on the table with a quickly scrawled note "Sorry for the mess". The next night when I returned to the room from the jobsite, the room was immaculate, except for a page torn out of the telephone book, face up on the middle of the table. I glanced at the page and it said "Alcoholics Anonymous".

Now, I was more than a little miffed. That pile of bottles and cans and ashtrays full of cigarette butts and other burnt things wasn't all mine; it was a group effort. I found myself growing very offended by the presumption of this faceless maid, trying to foist some kind of AA dogma off on me, when it wasn't any of her damned business.

Later, when my friends arrived to resume what had become our nightly partying, I was ranting and raving to them about the nerve of this damned maid. One of my friends turned the page over and showed me the reverse side. It said "American Airlines".

"I tore this out of the book last night when I had to reschedule my flight," he said. "You're an idiot."

The Hell, you say.

It really depends on the hotel, the town/state and the circumstances, because if someone did this, say in a ski resort town, it would be greatly appreciated. Just don't do it if you've already signed an agreement not to smoke in the room of your tight-ass, uppity hotel.

Moron.  If you want to take a pot vacation, book with a pot friendly hotel.  There are tour packages for this.  They'll book you a friendly hotel, take you to buy your pot and smoking device(s), take you on a tour of grow facilities, etc.  The Hyatt is not going to be pot-friendly.  They're a national chain and they're going to maintain an image compatible with every state in which they do business.
 
2014-04-11 10:22:43 PM
Whatever. I'm not clicking a link to something called "The Cannabist", and I don't care what you stoners say, weed smells like shiat and you can't just blaze up anywhere you like without offending people.

And don't give me "b-b-but cigarettes!" either, because they stink, too, but we push smokers outside to do their dirty, self-destructive, carbon-inhaling where they're less likely to bother the rest of us. If you want your burning drug legal, you have to deal with the same rules of politeness and fire marshal requirements that they do.

Of course both tobacco and weed smokers are nothing compared to the people who chew tobacco. That's just nasty.

We just drive around in a blacked out car and get ripped and go back to hotel, no problem.

Yes, it would be a LOT smarter if the windows opened and you could take a few whiffs inside, but we must respect the sensibilities I guess.

Wise words. I agree.

Do what you will, but harm none. Believe it or not, I consider having to smell someone else's drug habit within the realm of being harmful. Minor harm, certainly, but it is still encroaching on my right to NOT smell weed or be affected by it.

At least alcoholics don't go around pouring booze down people's throats in an effort to get them tipsy, but potheads think that other people will thank them for a contact high.
