For the last 3 years, I've been staying in hotels at least 2 nights a week, and this is my last week of it. We're moving back to London, and I am definitely ready to stop living like Alan Partridge.
I’ve never understood why so many people default to taking the lift. I’ve worked with dozens of people who pay good money to go to the gym, and then take the lift when they get to the office. There’s some free exercise right there waiting for them, but for some reason they would rather stand around waiting for a metal box where they can stand around making awkward small talk and bad jokes about the maximum number of people who fit in the lift. And don't get me started on people who take the lift for one floor...
In a lot of markets, it’s very difficult to distinguish between offerings. A lot of products and services are essentially the same. Hotels understand this - they're all basically the same. Who cares about the number of stars the hotel has? That probably just means they have a business centre with a fax machine. As long as the bed is comfortable, the room is clean, and it’s near where you need to be, everything else is just garnish.
