Now back to the reason we went on the road trip in the first place - The Arcade Hotel. On entering the Arcade Hotel there's only one word that can describe my reaction: mind blown. Just the simple action of taking a step inside the hotel, looking around at the interior, seeing all these people in the lobby doing one thing and one thing only - gaming - brought a whole new perspective to what I thought it would be like. I was surprised to see and feel the atmosphere. Daniel was focussed on making sure the people who visited the hotel felt like they were "staying at a friend's home", and I have to admit, he has successfully accomplished just that.
"Guests agree that if guests find any problems with our accommodations, and fail to provide us the opportunity to address those problems while the guest is with us, and/or refuses our exclusive remedy, but then disparages us in any public manner, we will be entitled to charge their credit card an additional $350 damage. Should the guest refuse to retract any such public statements legal action may be pursued," the policy read, according to the lawsuit.
The average hotel room is filthier than a typical home, school, or even a plane, according to the study Hotel Hygiene Exposed. With quick room turnarounds, cleaning staff often overlook some unexpected items. The study, conducted by TravelMath with laboratory testing by EmLab P&K, found the highest bacteria-filled areas were the bathroom counter and remote control, while an ABC News investigation "uncovered hotel drinking glasses that were so dirty they could pose a serious risk to your health." And don't let a clean-looking room fool you-- even the most expensive and attractive hotel rooms have hidden germs. Some of the most frequently touched places -- phone, light switches, pillowcases -- are contaminated with harmful bacteria.
