PM Linkage: Don't Drink the Water...Out of Hotel Room Glasses
We linked back to a local newscast story in Atlanta back in December who did an expose on those drinking glasses you see in hotel rooms. Check-out the video above.
Now an ABC channel in Arizona has done their own investigation which was featured on "Good Morning America." Most hotels caught using lax "cleaning" practices (for example: drying the glasses using a dirty hand towel) were budget chains and extended-stay chains.
BUT one of the hotels caught with questionable practices was the Arizona Biltmore Hotel, a Waldorf-Astoria collection (which we just wrote about this AM!) Here's the statement from the hotel:
We are extremely concerned to learn that one of our employees was not following the resort's exacting procedures on which they were trained. We have taken immediate action to address this issue, conducting additional training to ensure that every employee not only understands the procedures but consistently follows them.
So paying $6 for bottled water doesn't seem so bad now does it?
