It did not take long after returning from vacation to have the reality set in of a writing deadline to hit. When so many hotels have complained about the drop in occupancy this year, over last year, one would think that would welcome a chance to put their property in a travel guide, where it doesn’t cost them a thing. Yet, I have had to charm and persuade many to give me a tour.
Strangely, for the poor occupancy, they seem to be too fully booked to show me a room or worse yet to offer me a complimentary night. I am done with those, they were exhausting.
