Could Wearing a Nice Suit and Asking for a Non-Smoking Room Get You An Upgrade? Maybe.

That seems to be the case with what happened to Flickr member Ramones Karaoke (a nickname of course) who has a great collection of business hotel shots. Or as he calls them "Faceless Business Hotels of the World."

Ramones spent a night near the Munich airport and here's what went down:

They ran out of no smoking rooms on a day I was wearing a nice suit and looking hassled, so I got upgraded at the Munich Airport Kempinski into a 'Junior Suite' - what on earth a 'Senior Suite' must be like I cannot guess - the Junior has more toilets than my house, a walk-in wardrobe, 2 TVs, great toiletries in the bathroom.

Flippin' heck.

Granted it was at an airport hotel but whatever! This kind of upgrade should make the layover feel a little more comfortable. The only thing that bummed Ramones was the lack of WiFi, meaning he had to stay glued to the desk instead of lounging on the bed. Still that's way better than the desk/bed combo at TuneHotels.
