One of my favorite things to do is travel and stay in hotels.
I enjoy the idea of getting away from reality and relinquishing all responsibilities.
It is nice to know that at a hotel, there are people who will do just about anything you ask. Of course, these requests come at a price, but that is okay. A requirement I always request when I am looking for a hotel to stay in is that the room has control of the heating and cooling. If there is not a thermostat in the room, I will not stay there. I am lucky to be with someone who enjoys sleeping in a cold room and with several fans. I can not sleep well in a hot room that is too quiet. I like the idea of being able to control the temperature in the hotel room. I recently stayed in a hotel where there was access to the thermostat, but the temperature only went down to 74 degrees. In order to sleep comfortably, I need to be in a room that is at least 70 degrees. With one simple phone call, I was able to have the front desk adjust the temperature in our hotel to 69 degrees. I did not like that they had a block on the thermostat in this hotel room, but I understood. The front desk told us that people would come from the Northern states where it was very cold and adjust the thermostat to fit their comfort zone. People had been setting the thermostat at 60 degrees and freezing the HVAC system for many years before the hotel decided to put the lock on the thermostat.
