Budget Travel ran a great article in their February issue as part of their confessions series. Read the full article here. The article is written by a hotel room attendant who clearly does not enjoy her job and took every shortcut possible from skipping the vacuuming to placing a do not disturb sign on a door or two.
We believe that hotel cleanliness has greatly improved over the last decade or so. Remember the old days of room attendants washing the drinking glasses in the bathroom sink and having comforters that were cleaned once a year? Whoever invented the triple-sheeted bed deserves an award. We also love new hotels that skip the bathtubs and just install showers. I could not imagine taking a bath in a hotel room and doubt many guests ever do.
