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.

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.
