Why Are Hotels So Hot ?

I am sat in a Holiday Inn hotel room in just my underwear ( sorry for the mental image ) because it is absolutely roasting.
Why , when they are always asking you if you would like to reuse your towels to help save the environment do they crank the heat so far up that my Cadbury's Fruit & Nut is melting ?
When I got here the heating in the room was on full. Probably had been since 8:00a.m. when the last resident checked out. Turned it off and put the air conditioning on. An athsmatic hamster breathing on me would have been more helpful.:mad:
Sorry for the rant but I have to stay in hotels a fair bit and every hotel , irrespective of chain , is exactly the same.
Maybe it's just me because I am used to the 'bracing' temperatures in Scotland and am currently in southern England.
Anyone else feel the same or am I just a moaning git ?

Depending on the age of the hotel, the room may not have electronics controls. So the maid may have accidentally left the heating up after cleaning the room. Why don't you call ahead...

I know what you mean....I hate the dry heat in hotel rooms.

I'm sat here (fully clothed) having just turned the thermostat down and opened the window, with a pint in front of me watching the Ireland match.........maybe that's it...they want to leave us parched so we have to spend more in the bar!!


But don't you just love hotel wifi. :D

Only when you don;t get caught........ :D

Colleague of mine is bereft of telephone and broadband after moving house; even his Orange connection is off as well (remote house), so he went and parked up next to his local Holiday Inn restaurant. :smashin: Until he was spotted and asked to move!

Good idea in theory but I tend to stay in large chain hotels who would respond to a call ahead as if you were mad. Can't put it down to the maid either as this happens in pretty well every hotel I stay in.

Our company VPN is so paranoid and picky that even though there is wired broadand and Wi-Fi it won't let me connect using either.
Am sat here using my dongle :D

Can't even do 'that' . Everything I look at goes through the most thorough filter I have ever heard of. Even Frank Zappa's website was blocked for 'adult contect - pornography' until I had a quiet word.

:rotfl: If only. See my post above yours about paranoid VPN and filtering.
Would certainly make boring nights in hotels go a bit quicker :devil:
