    Hotel booking

    Hi,

    When you book an hotel room in montreal and you live there, do you feel a bit shy when you see the reception to do the check in? Because, the first time I book an hotel room to see an escort, the waitress said to me: Strange, you live in montreal and you book an hotel room here...

    I felt very embarrassed and shy after this comment. On the moment, I just get stuck, I didn't know what to say. Does someone has ever receive a similar comment to mine? I realize that I just could tell her, it's not of your businness, keep doing your work.

    It was at the Hyatt Hotel. After reading some hotel thread before booking at the Hyatt, I thought it was a SP friendly. It might be true, but the way I have been served was a lack of professionnalism by a reputable hotel.

    Is there other hotel that the reception, just get you comfortable for the check in? Thanks,

    Lordzeager,
    Problem is not with the reception...but with the person who happened to be there. You can have 10 great receptionists and it takes one bad apple to kill the mood. I remember Quintessence at Tremblant -> An awesome hotel...with awesome ppl...and on my 10th visit there, I had to meet with that frustrated non professional receptionist...She killed the mood...but she's not representative of that hotel neither. I made sure his supervisors were aware of her non sense presence under their roof.
    We could suggest you great hotels where we happened to receive a great service...then you go there and you are welcomed
    by a rotten apple.

    Some ready-to-say answers

    I was thinking about that too because I would like to get an outcall in my own city but not at home. So I have devised some answers for that particular question: "Why are u booking in the same city?"

    None of yr business

    Exterminators are at home

    My hardwood floors are currently being changed

    My neighbour is too noisy

    My wife is too noisy

    I was put out of home for hobbying

    To see you, darling

    Fire at home (valid only once...)

    Lost my home keys

    Rains in my bedroom

    Want a drink?

    I've checked into two different hotels and they've never asked me that question after they check my driver's license and noticing that I lived in the same city (or they ask me for my address). It was very unprofessional for the receptionist (not waitress) to ask you this question. It is none of her business.

    The only 2 things that she and the hotel should be concerned with is whether you will follow the policy of the hotel (in terms of the maximum number of guests in a room, smoking, pets, etc.) and whether you will pay or not.

    The fact is that if you didn't rent the room, there is a strong possibility that the room will go unrented... and an unrented room is a loss for the hotel.

    There's something I don't get here.

    In my experience, when you check-in at a hotel from Priceline, the only address they get is Priceline's address in Norwalk, Connecticut.

    I don't recall too many hotels asking for ID, though they do ask for a credit card for incidentals. A credit card shouldn't reveal your address.

    Is there some other secret way they're getting your address?

    Just provide a false address and phone number.
    Nobody is going to check.
    I do not see any problem. 4 star hotels never ask any question.

    Can't agree more here. I've always found the staff at the Hyatt to be entirely professional, but it seems LZ had the misfortune of running into a bad apple. I'd be tempted to complain if I was asked such a question as well.

    Obviously to wonder aloud the question 'why r u here' is a sign of a poorly trained front desk clerk, but she was probably new and 9 times out of 10 I would wager nobody would ask or even care. If so, having the backup excuses above are all you need for peace of mind. There are probably a hundred other good excuses.

    No need for an excuse! The question should't be asked in the first place so, why would an excuse be required?

    For those who insist in having an excuse, here's a suggestion: Look at the girl and tell her "I'm here to see my mistress but she can only get away from her husband for 1 hour so, once she's gone, you could come up and we could use up the remaining time till the morning?

    I'll remember to use that excuse if I see Maude and she ever asks me (or who I think is Maude).
