Because Varric hates to travel.
I really hope Inquisition is just 100 hours of Varric Tethras bitching about the outdoors.
Convention season is creeping up on us like a big, creeping… thing. And this means that thousands of like-minded individuals will cram themselves, six to a room, into hotels and convention centers and forgetting basic hygiene in favor of socializing with people who actually get them. (Which brings me to the next point: please shower.)
Hotels detest large groups of people because while they do bring in money they also mean heaps of trouble most of the time. If there’s enough trouble, they can actually refuse to house cons in the future- and we don’t want that. Hotel jobs are not easy and they don’t always pay well, so here’s some pointers on how to make it easier on your hosts:
- give tips when you can. Desk staff, breakfast hosts, and housekeeping all accept tips. Even if its a dollar. It can really make a person’s day, and that’s important.
- If you’re hanging out in the lobby and the janitor looks like they’re going to start cleaning, please allow them leeway to clean. They can’t vacuum if you’re on the carpet, they can’t mop if you’re on the tile. Which means that they have to wait, which means overtime, which usually results in hours for the next week being docked and that’s really very inconvenient.
- If you’re going to be arriving late (closer to 10pm or later), call the hotel and let them know- particularly if its a lot of people.
- You are not the only people in the hotel. It may seem like the only guests at your hotel are fellow con-goers, but its rare that one event reserves the whole building. There’s usually at least one very confused grandmother. Keep the noise levels down, comply if there is a noise complaint against you.
- Keep messes in public areas to a minimum, clean up what you can. Let staff know. If something is broken in your room, let staff know.
- You may get a survey emailed to you. Fill it out when you get a chance: we actually do read your comments. Make a point of remembering names of staff that were particularly helpful- they get rewarded.
- Overall, be polite and patient with the staff- you don’t know how many problems they’ve had to deal with in one day. Usually by the time check-in rolls around its been a lot.
Other than that, keep safe and have fun!
Some excellent points! Respect the space! :D We are sharing a weekend with TWO weddings!
