Advices for guests

Crazy Hotel Workers have listed great, funny, interesting, useful and definitely true advices for hotel guests how to handle problems when in hotel:

-Deal with problems as they happen. That’s why there’s usually someone on staff at all times, to deal with things as they occur. If you have a problem with your room at check in, whatever it may be, do NOT wait until checkout the next morning to let us know. It’s quite likely we would’ve been able to fix the issue, whatever it may be. In my opinion, if you take away our chance to fix your problem, why should you be compensated for it?

-Don’t book through internet sites that offer you dirt cheap fares. You really do get what you pay for. If you must book through the internet, use a hotel’s brand website. They are much more reliable. Not all problems with these reservations are the fault of the front desk, believe it or not. The discount websites are very misleading. They would sell you a cot in the basement of the hotel if they could.

-Many hotels strive to be something like your home away from home… but we are still a business. It is our job to sell rooms. You do not get to dictate who goes where, what rooms well sell, etc. If for some reason you have special needs, make them known up front. Perhaps you are a light sleeper? If you let us know in advance, we can try to accommodate you. A room off in the corner somewhere is going to be more quiet than one smack in the middle of the hotel. If you prefer not to be around groups.. make that known as well. I know not all travelers (if any) know when something is going to be going on at the hotel, so it doesn’t hurt to ask. We won’t point and laugh at you, we promise. We really do try to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

For more go here. I wish guests would read and use those advices. Life would be easier both for hotel workers and guests.

  1. “Don’t book through internet sites that offer you dirt cheap fares. You really do get what you pay for”

    This is so true about on-line budget travel agents. I’ve now done this 3 times and it has caused problems.

    1. The hotel we booked was booked on the wrong day, because we had crossed over international date line and the system didn’t take that into account.

    2. The on-line system booked us into a hotel for a day rate instead of an over night rate and we were hit with an extra bill on our credit card.

    3. On 2 occasions our car rentals have cost us more than what the “buget” on-line said it would cost.

    One of the big probelms with those budget on-line travel agents is that there is no come back, all my communications with them just got ignored.

    Having said all that I still book by e-mail directly with hotels.

  2. Wow ) I found nice site -> Caroline Ducey
