Interest rates go up, bond prices go down.
Interest rates go down, bond prices go up.

The amount of people who were caught off guard by this blows my mind.

Whoops. Wrong thread 🤣

I've stayed in a couple of hotels that did not have daily room servicing and it showed.  At least vacuum the floors daily.

"A lot of guests, to this day, don't want people coming into their room during their stay," he said. "To force something onto a guest that they don't want is the antithesis of what it means to work in the hospitality industry."

This BS is right up there with "We've found that our employees are happier being able to contribute in a meaningful way rather than receiving a wage increase."


"My wife and I just have never really understood why there would be daily housekeeping ... when that's not the case at home and it's wasteful," he said.
He said he expects his kids to tidy up after themselves.
"I'm a Type-A, so I get out of bed and I make my bed, so I don't need someone else to make my bed," he said.


Nice...they found the guy that doesn't want the staff to see his pee stains on the bed until after he checks out.

I don't usually tip the maids, but I also don't trash the room.  It's called adulting.

It definitely wasn't the "sad" tag when this thread first showed up.

How disguising are you that there is a noticeable difference in carpet after 1 day?

I am thinking the opposite. Charge a "do not disturb" fee if he doesn't want his room cleaned during his stay.

Marketing will come up with a way to rename it as an Environmental Concern Charge.

The problem is that vacuums don't do a perfect job in a single pass, so cleaners need to be more thorough if they're only doing it every couple days.  But if everything else takes more time too, then that isn't likely to happen.  So you get persistently dirtier floors as a result.

The hotel I stayed at last weekend said they weren't doing daily cleaning due to keeping the environment healthy. When I worked at Starwood hotels, they gave you points if you declined the daily room cleaning.

Of course that 'do not disturb fee' will go to the hotel and not the maids.

Fair enough.

Don't want some maid poking about in my stuff. Thanks but  I can keep my room plenty tidy enough.

I pay full price I expect clean towels, new coffee items and a made up bed!

Show me on your map how not flushing the toilet or washing towels puts a nice, cool 8oz glass of clean water in the hands of a little Biafran child.  Go ahead; I'll wait!
