Purified water in each ropm
The only comment I can make is that apparently the water in the rooms is not fit for consumption. Why supply bottled water? This is a costly exercise. If the hotel was to put an RO filtration kit in each room with a filter change every 24 months, there would be no problems. These kits would pay for themselves over and over again. Worth a thought???
