When traveling cross-country to see my sister last fall, I ran into several situations that left me scratching my head.
- I thought every hotel was supposed to offer HVAC for their guests, but I was wrong.
There were two hotels that didn’t offer heating or air conditioning. I thought it had to be a mistake on the travel guide, but I was wrong. I called the hotels in question and asked about HVAC. The front desk at the first hotel said their climate was mild, and they didn’t have any use for HVAC. The temperatures were seldom high enough to warrant air conditioning, and when winter arrived, the weather remained mild. I would think they would have HVAC for those odd days when the temperatures got hot or cold, but they insisted it wasn’t necessary. Needless to say, I didn’t stay at the hotel during my travels. I was within twenty miles of the second hotel, and I made a phone call about the HVAC system. She told me it was a mistake in the brochure. They had heating, but no air conditioning. Even during the summer, they often had cooler days, but they seldom needed air conditioning. I knew I wouldn’t stay at either hotel and wondered why anyone would. With global warming, you never knew what the weather would be like. There were plenty of other hotels that boasted HVAC and swimming pools. I liked the one that offered excellent HVAC, swimming pools, and free breakfast every morning. That is where I spent three days, and broke up the monotony of traveling.
