(Daily Mail)   The 10 worst things you can do in a hotel, from talking on a cell phone during check in to denying after the fact that you ordered an XXX movie. Typical - you ponce in here expecting to be waited on hand and foot, while I'm trying to run a hotel here   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 160

farkeruk: I've had a few occassions where I'm about to be served and a client rings, and I just drop my place in the queue.


Thank you. I appreciate people like you!

I once saw a Subway server ask "May I take your order?" to a guy on his phone with about fifteen people behind him. He did that "one moment" thing with his index finger, expecting everyone to just wait for him. Even though I was ahead of him, already getting my food, I felt like slapping him silly.

/his "one moment" was, of course, about a minute
//guy behind him didn't notice since he was on his phone too, and the guy behind him didn't... you get the idea

When I worked front desk, I was amazed by the number of businessmen who accidently went to the porno channel, confirmed they were over 18, scrolled through the selections, selected a movie, confirmed they were over 18 again, confirmed that they wanted to watch the movie, then accidently watched the movie for five minutes.

/Always took it off the bill because I hated that job.

OK, just as soon as the front desk workers stop answering the phone when I'm trying to check in.

/I don't really talk on the phone during transactions.

That really can't be helped especially if you're the only one at the front desk and the hotels I've worked at want you to get the phone by the third ring.

"Would you please hold? I have a customer in front of me who I'm in the process of checking in/out."

That's what I tried to do anyways, but then they'll keep calling back just getting angrier in the process.

I have a friend who is a travel agent who travels all over the world all the time.

He was in a Marriot in DC and noticed a cigarette butt on the table next to the elevator.

He saw it there the next day and took a pic of it and posted it on Marriots forum.

The next day it was still there so he placed a spoon next to it, and posted another pic.

He was in DC for about 8 days, so for 8 days he kept adding items, receipts, and orange peel, and kept posting them.

Marriot club members were responding him and calling him an asshole and all sorts of names.

However, when he got home to Bogota, there was a package from Marriot.  It was a video camera with a letter thanking him for his work and the hotel staff had been instructed on how they hotel should be cleaned, and they asked him to bring the video camera with him whenever he stayed in one of their properties so he could post videos on their hotels failings with his funny commentaries.

Conversely, a list for hotels:

1. Actually have staff willing to do their jobs. Porters that refuse to help with luggage, coupled with cleaning staff that can't make a bed, is a waste of time.
2. Actually have a concierge capable of the job. A concierge that doesn't know anything about the area, or cops an attitude when asked basic questions, is a waste of time.
3. Fix problems before guests encounter them. Good hotels ensure that the remote's checked - bad hotels lose the friggin' remote and try to charge you for it.
4. Handle criticism well. Don't blow off bad reviews on Yelp, or angry customers, because, hey, fark them, right?
5. Provide adequate waste facilities. A table for trays and a wastebasket larger than a helmet ensures that the hall doesn't fill up with trash because there's no place in the room to place it.
6. Stop stealing my stuff. Sure, I may have misplaced that $2.00 plastic card used to get into my room, but your staff certainly didn't - half my wardrobe didn't get up and walk off by itself.
7. Actually ensure that what's ordered for room service shows up. I've been in more than one hotel where the order's not just wrong, but for the wrong room, and the hotel still tried to charge us for it.
8. I'll stop denying "adult features" when you stop denying bedbugs. I'm tired of hosting your guests in my house after a trip. You pay for cleaning & fumigation, I'll pay for Big Booty Bombshells 3. Deal?
9. Ensure that my room's ready on check-in. There's nothing worse than standing in the lobby, with my luggage, for an hour while you hurriedly mop up jizz after the last "guest".
10. Likewise. When I'm checking in, stop answering the goddamned phone and complete the process - check-in shouldn't take 45 minutes because you have better things to do.

Huh. That doesn't fly in most of the restaurants down here in Seattle. You pull that shiat, the person behind the counter tells you step aside - complain, and you risk being refused service entirely. Lots of places with signs to that effect here, too. You're not too important to kick to the curb.

farkeruk: BizarreMan: Talking on the phone while being being waited on by a cashier, desk clerk, anyone is damn rude and needs to be stomped.  Unless the call is specifically related to the transaction in question it should be put on hold.

I'm going to start getting violent on these people. I've already telling the person next to me a made-up obscene story that the woman in front of me and her caller are going to hear loudly, just to piss them off (and 9 times out of 10, it's a woman). In a few cases, they've given me a "how dare you" response when they rapidly put the phone down, but it's not enough.

I've had a few occassions where I'm about to be served and a client rings, and I just drop my place in the queue. You've got voicemail, people. View it like if you're taking a dump, or mid-coitus. Unless you're a doctor on call, you have no excuse.


I'm fine with that. It's when I'm already being served, and the person handling the task repeatedly drops me to answer the phone, to the point where we have to restart the process at least once, that irritates me. Yes, I get that you're behind the desk, but, seriously, 45 minutes to verify my identity and method of payment, so you can hand me a room key?

There has to be some form of balance there.

farkeruk: Smackledorfer: Call me while I am on the shiatter at your own risk. I'm answering that shiat.

I had a new client call me from the khazi recently. Like WTF? I can understand answering a call there, but sitting down and thinking "hey, I'll call that guy up about a project". Who does that?


Now there I agree. I would never start a call in the bathroom.
 
2014-05-26 10:33:53 AM  
But as far as being on the phone while at other places, such as the store when you're checking in. I don't talk much to the customer anyways while I'm dealing with their groceries aside from some small talk, but I want them to at least pay attention. The other day I had this one guy who on the phone the entire time and when everything was done, he walked away without his cart. I had to call after him to return

I've seen both, but I used to see the customer on the phone more often.  Also, I'm not talking about hotel front desk clerks answering the hotel's phone.

9. Getting belligerent your room isn't ready when you arrive at 10am, but check-in's at 4pm
And if you insist on checking out the next day at 4pm, don't go all Russell Crowe when you're charged for another night.


IMO, there's been a noticeable creep here.  Check-in 4pm?  fark You.  How late are you going to push that?  In 5-years it'll be 6pm.

What's the over/under on a "Housekeeping!" knock in a typical businesss hotel (if, God forbid, you forget your DND sign)? 8h30-ish sound about right?  So their cleaning rooms way before noon.  At least some of those are people who are checking out that day.  Then the normal check-out time of noon, and the rest go.

Are you telling me it takes 4 hours to clean the enough rooms for the occasional early arriver, since most check-outs are long gone by the start of business?

No way, no how.  Anyway, the only time I've ever been refused early check-in is arriving very early after overseas flights...in which case they're usually happy to store your stuff until a room opens up.

Delta1212: All nouns have become verbs, all adjectives have become nouns and the verbs have all been shot.


Or, rather, all nouns have verbed, all adjectives are nounly, and the verbs have ceased to be!

< grinds teeth >

As for hotel behavior, where is making the bathroom floor about six inches deep with soap bars, vomit, and grapefruit rinds, mixed with broken glass?  What about leaving the rug so thick with marijuana seeds that it appears to be turning green? Or  creating a general back-alley ambience so rotten, so incredibly foul, that you could probably get away with claiming it was some kind of 'Life-slice exhibit' brought down from Haight Street, to show cops from other parts of the country how deep into filth and degeneracy the drug people will sink, if left to their own devices?

This, especially 9.  We drive to our destinations rather than fly (its a hell of a lot cheaper, even cross-country).  We also tend to drive at night, since we have an 18-month-old that doesn't handle car rides very well unless he's sleeping.  So when I arrive exhausted at noon at your hotel, surviving on the last dregs of my 8th coffee, do me a favor and have my room ready.  I've NEVER seen housekeeping tending ANY room past noon, so you can't tell me a room isn't available.  Your parking lot has, what, 10 cars in it?  I know at least 4 of those are staff.  Don't feed me a line that no rooms are available until 4 pm.  Give me my farking room key and then go back to browsing Facebook.

Other things about the hotel:
If you're having issues with the cab, don't expect the front desk to solve it and if they won't take credit for whatever reason, don't ask the front desk to pay for it. I mean yes, the FD will pay for the ride in certain circumstances, but not if the driver is being a dick about something

Please know which hotel you're staying at. Don't just show up and hand us your key card asking where you're staying. Sure, if the hotel name has Hilton on it, and you're asking a Marriot FD clerk where you're staying, the most we'll be able to tell you is that you're at a Hilton

Please, for the love of our sanity, put down everyone who is staying with you so that if they lose their room key, we can just look them up and see if they're attached to the room. Otherwise, we can only give out the key to the person whose name is on the room.

Hilary T. N. Seuss: farkeruk: I've had a few occassions where I'm about to be served and a client rings, and I just drop my place in the queue.

Thank you. I appreciate people like you!

I once saw a Subway server ask "May I take your order?" to a guy on his phone with about fifteen people behind him. He did that "one moment" thing with his index finger, expecting everyone to just wait for him. Even though I was ahead of him, already getting my food, I felt like slapping him silly.

/his "one moment" was, of course, about a minute
//guy behind him didn't notice since he was on his phone too, and the guy behind him didn't... you get the idea


I use to work at Subway, we would skip people like that. It happened all the time, and most people surprisingly didn't say anything just gave either a confused or dirty look. The few people who did say something usually start with "I'll call you right back" and hang up the phone, so before they could yell we'd be right there with a "oh you're off your phone are you ready to order?"

/The worst were the people who wanted to hand us the phone to take their friends/whatever order, I would speak overly load and make sure to spit as much as I could when talking into their phone, more often then not they would wipe it off before returning it to their ears. Seriously how stupid are people that they can't write down a simple order?

Seriously how stupid are people that they can't write down a simple order?


I guess even dumberer than the ones who cant use the speaker phone function

tjsands1118: I use to work at Subway, we would skip people like that. It happened all the time, and most people surprisingly didn't say anything just gave either a confused or dirty look.

I've done my fair share of working in fast food industry, luckily before everyone got cellphone douchey.  I still know how to politely place the order while leaving the person I was talking to hanging on.  It only happened like once or twice, but they understood they could hang up or wait till I was done placing the order.  I also can recall my whole families order from the last time we ate there, so I don't need to call them for their part of the order.

Smackledorfer: Now there I agree. I would never start a call in the bathroom.


I dunno.  That's usually when I return calls to my ex-wife.

I never had a seriously bad experience in any hotels I stayed in. I used to like to find the small 'Mom and Pop' versions because the rooms were more unique, not cookie-cutter and the occasional surprise would pop up, like there being a kitchenette included.

One hotel held my room for me even though I ran about two hours late, on a Friday, when they were busiest.

I was in Georgia when I checked into a hotel well after midnight after a long driving trip. I asked when checkout time was to discover it was 11 am -- and I was there at 1 am. I jumped into the shower to discover they didn't have traction strips on the bottom of the wonderfully clean tub and wound up doing a mad little dance to keep my balance. By the time I hit the hay, it was a little after 2 and I had to leave a wake-up call request for 9 to make sure I got up and out before being charged for another day.

I didn't like that.
