Oh dear. It looks like the InterContinental Sydney is going to have to look into installing some of that linen tracking technology—though, in this particular scenario, it's not guests who are the culprits.
An individual who claims to work for the cleaning company that services the hotel has gotten his hands on a gym towel, used (he claims) by British boyband One Direction singer Zayn Malik. So he's done what any other self-respecting hotel cleaner would do after snagging something a teen idol has wiped his body with: put it up on eBay. And the best part? There's still another 8 days and 14 hours until this "once in a lifetime opportunity" comes to an end.
If hotels were people, The Curtis Hotel in Denver would most definitely not be a wallflower. A slightly kooky, always-energetic boss, or your life-of-the-party friend, perhaps. This is, after all, the hotel that has already caught our attention with a humungous doggie door, themed floors, and a ‘Stay Happy’ Contest.
Its relentlessly upbeat nature reminds us of the corporate culture of Zappos, or the new-fangled “positive psychology” craze. Often, this can get, well, a little much. But the latest promotion out of Planet Happy Curtis is so much a little much that it’s mega: the hotel is putting itself up for auction on eBay for New Year’s Eve.
