About Me

Since Sep 2008

Lives in Washington DC, District of Columbia

50-64 year old female

I enjoy traveling and am very finicky when it comes to cleanliness. As an educator, I mainly travel for a mix of culture and pleasure - I'm interested in the geography, the people, & the local vibe. I shop for bargains at 4 star hotels and frequently use Priceline or hotels.com. I enjoy luxury, but don't have to have it to be happy with my stay. What do I demand? CLEANLINESS! There is no excuse, especially with enough staff, to not maintain a certain standard. If my room is not satisfactory, I politely explain the problem and am usually moved. What have I found? Anger and outrage get you nowhere with hotel staff, stay calm and state your issue with your room and you'll get good results. In addition, do your homework, read reviews and realize that there will always be one unhappy person who will give an unflattering rating; however, if most reviews are exemplary you can be sure your stay will be near flawless.
