only affects me, no one else, 6th time in 8 yrs!
Posted Sep 19, 2014
I am a heavy business traveler and 8 yrs ago I had a boss who liked Holiday Inns so I tried and had a terrible series of mishaps (hair in tub, thin walls, etc). I normally have points at Marriotts, so after that I tried to stay at those chains. But, at the boss's bequest, I attempted several 4 more stays at Holiday Inns until 3 years ago. Each time, I had problems- either bug, room cleanliness or severe noise when I requested quiet rooms. On each of the various location behalf's, I will state, the staff was always very pleasant and courteous; the hotels were usually booked full and I ended up with the last rooms available (or close to). Unfortunately, at least 1 stay was next to a bachelor party room. None of my other co-workers ever saw any uncleanliness in the rooms and slept well.
This last business trip was to a location remote in the midwest and the nearest other chain hotels were at least 1 hr drive away with the Holiday Inn recommended by the business relationship. My 2 other co-workers had excellent stays. Me: I sat down on the bed runner to have white dog hairs fly up so I looked down. The runner was covered in dog hair. I love dogs, grew up with large dogs, had a total of 10 dogs in my life, but currently do not have dogs and did not expect that much dog hair on the end of my bed! However, the rest of the furniture and floors were clean, ammenities very, very nice. But terrible, when I laid down, the bed spread smelled like dog drool. :( Maybe it's me. :(
