If you’re an elite member of a hotel loyalty program, many of the “most annoying guest questions” listed by hotel workers from all over the country aren’t ones you would likely ask, but the select few below may still be relevant. Check out the full list from Thrillist here:
“Why is there an adult movie on my bill?” – Oh, I’m sorry, the porn gnomes must have snuck into your room while you were out and watched 14 minutes of Barely Legal Summer Camp — Volume 12. We’ve been having a serious problem with that lately. Feel free to mention it on TripAdvisor.
“Why do I have to pay for a rollaway?” – Because you don’t gotta pay for the eight people you’re clearly harboring in a four-person room. Yes, we’re watching you, so we can do this the easy way or the hard way.
“This isn’t a resort. Why am I paying a resort tax?” – Unfortunately, this state’s definition of “resort” doesn’t include a daily appearance by a giant mouse or a late-night “discotheque.” They’re tacking on an extra four bucks a night to raise money for a local pro sports stadium you’ll never use. Will that be Visa or Amex?
“Can you get me a ‘friends and family’ rate?” – The “friends and family” rate is reserved for exactly that: friends and family. I can, however, get you the “freeloading social media acquaintance” rate, which is the nightly published rate plus city tax, resort tax, parking, Wi-Fi, and any adult movie charges.
