Luggage Hauling

Dear Hotel Guests,

I think you’ve reached a new level of lazy when you pay $40 extra to upgrade to a room that’s available on the first floor, not because of a handicap, not because you are old and frail, but because you don’t want to bring your luggage to the second floor.

A couple things. I’m not sure about you, but whilst driving here I passed automobiles on the streets, not covered wagons. Most modern, multi floor, chain hotels have elevators. Also, even if you have 14 suitcases for your two-night stay, we have luggage carts that you can load all your belongings onto and make it simple enough that a toddler could steer one of those suckers into your room.

Both those alternatives are free. Both alternatives do not set you back forty dollars for self admitted laziness. But I can totally understand wanting to pay to save yourself from luggage moving that totals probably seven minutes during your stay. Perhaps you've been extra good this year, and have plans of Santy Claus overwhelming you with gifts tonight. That would explain it.

Happy Christmas,
Friendly Neighborhood Desk Clerk
