In addition, I was finally able to sit down and read Heads in Beds, a terrific hotel memoir written by Jacob Tomsky. I strongly recommend this to anyone who travels frequently, infrequently, or has ever worked a service-indusrty job. Whereas I'm able to drop a few hints on this blog about how to not piss off a doorman with a chip on his shoulder, Tomsky's book will introduce you to a whole new world of what to do and what the fuck not to do when visiting a hotel (along with some hilarious celebrity interactions, stories of fucked-up managers, hustles, etc.).
Do yourself a favor and pick it up. It's a quick, fun read, and you'll be a better guest and enjoy an infinitely better stay because of it. Trust me.
