Ask A Hotel Employee Something!

147 posts in this topic

Hi CDC,

I've worked in a three (now four) star hotel in Edmonton for over a year in the Security and Guest Services department.

Everyday I get common, and not so common questions regarding hotels, and I'd figure if any of you had any questions, I would do my best to answer them.

However, I will not tell you which chain or hotel I work for. I will be honest with all my answers, but please note that some answers may be specific to certain hotel chains.

Most of my knowledge is with the following departments:

- Security

- (some) Front Desk

- Bellhop / concierge / guest services

- (some) Reservations

- Housekeeping

- Maintenance

My hotel was built in the late 60's, and is starting to have a full renovation. Renovations are now complete.

EDIT:

Hello all!

Please read though all the pages to see if the question you are going to ask hasn't already been answered!

Ask away!

Are housekeeping people from the chains themselves or from private company's?

What's the weirdest thing someone has left behind? Is there really as much bodily fluids on the sheets as crime scene shows would suggest?

Has Jean Claude Van Damme ever told you to have sex with a stripper while he did blow and watched?

We had a gentlemen who came into the lobby, took off his shirt, started swearing at guests then ran outside. He then proceeded to smash a car window, then jump from our parkade to the roof of the hotel. After kicking and spitting at one of my other security officers, he ran to a hotel that is right behind ours, pulled the fire alarm, used a couple of fire extinguishers and then started hopping on balconies until the police came and arrested him.

He was just coming off of PCP and alcohol, and was not a guest of the hotel.

If you guys run out of clean towels and someone requests one in their room, do you just grab an old dirty towel that's dry and fold it nicely before giving it to them?
