every now and again, in the interest of saving a little of my travel budget, I try ",local" hotels - that is, not part of an international chain. and, for the record, I consider hotels like novotel or Rotana to be an acceptable chain, I am talking about hotels that are only in mexico, or egypt or something like that. anyway, so I am at a hotel last night in mexico, that was reasonable, but had a bunch of small things that just drove me fucking nuts. the minibar was locked when I got to my room, again, not a biggie, but I have a couple of protien shakes a day based on fruit juice, so I wanted to get a fruit juice from the minibar. and when I called down to have somebody come and open it, it took more than half an hour. also, the WiFi was spotty, pulsing stronger and weaker - not a biggie, but annoying. then, this morning, the chamber maid took my (own personal) hanger and plastic suit bag. I am guessing that she thought it was trash, but she took them, and it took my an hour to get somebody who could get them back for me.
so, while this was no the end of the fucking world, it did annoy me.
