Touchy-Feely Hotel

I recently made a hotel reservation for an upcoming business trip. Here’s what the hotel’s confirmation email said:

Welcome Barry,

Renewal awaits. We’ve received your reservation. Thank you for choosing to experience The [hotel name]. Your mind, body, and spirit will be energized. If there’s anything we can do to make your stay more rewarding, please ask.

Be Well,

[hotel name]


Update, 9:30: It’s been pointed out to me that a quick Google search will reveal the hotel chain to be Westin, so there’s no point in hiding it.

How about, "I would like my room for free, please"?

Barry Leiba said...

Good idea. That would certainly "energize" my mind, body, and spirit.

And your wallet.
