Denzel Washington’s Character In “Flight” May Not Be Enough To Keep Hotel Mini-Bar Business Alive!

CNN reports that many major hotel chains are getting rid of mini-bars.

“But I love it when my kids snap open $300 worth of Pringles in the ten seconds I spend in the hotel closet locking $300 in the safe,” you say!

3 More Things We’d Like To See Hotels Get Rid of

1. Hotel bills slid under your door in the middle of the night, while you’re trying to sleep the night before you check out. Who are these stealth-delivery-people who give you print-outs of obsolete information you probably already knew? (Unless you used the mini-bar, where you will have to give the front-desk clerk a card advising them of just how many mini-bottles of Jack Daniels you drank by yourself the night before.) The important thing is that if you rented a dirty movie while your girlfriend was out shopping in the afternoon, she may see the randomly-arriving bill giving her all of the details before you.

2. USA Today! In this internet age, we don’t care about copies of USA Today, featuring USA yesterday‘s news. Especially if we are staying in a luxury hotel, where we have the luxury of reading the latest news on our devices using WiFi for only $20 per device per night!

3. Reward programs that require you to spend twenty nights at the Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong to get a free night at a Courtyard by Marriott in the suburbs of Appleton, Wisconsin. We may be exaggerating here. We’re not Marriott Rewards Club members. The biggest Marriott reward we know is that after losing his Presidential bid, Mitt Romney got to rejoin Marriott’s board of directors. The most rewarding thing about this news (if you clicked on the preceding hyper-link), was that we brought it to you from the folks at USA Today, using the internet, and not obsolete former trees with infographics of other useless information printed on them.

  1. Great post. I won’t miss mini bars and I hate the thought of someone at my door while I sleep. Plus, I’m in absolute agreement with you when it comes to “rewards programs”. I utterly despise them!

    I’ve just read an article that seems to be just crazy, read it here
