Different, But Refreshingly So - Nicholas Bate

Michael Sampson - Currents

Nicholas provides a s nap shot of what it means to be refreshingly different : " 2. Hotel rooms where the air-con, wifi and lighting are easy to use. Business phone lines without convoluted menu-driven interactions. Airport security with a smile. Healthy fast-food. Shops which open on time. Banks who remember who gave them the money in the first place. Schools which still value education not just grades. Thinking which is critical but doesn't criticise. A day without meetings.

An Open Letter to Hoteliers Worldwide

Evolving Web

Wifi : If I can get a day’s worth of wifi free, simply for the price of a coffee, why then do you insist on charging me to use your wifi after I’ve already paid you hundreds or even thousands of dollars? Further, why is the wifi disproportionately expensive to the rest of the room? I would venture a guess that an increasing number of guests use wifi more than than they turn on the television (and certainly more than use the pool). Hoteliers: Please.

San Francisco

Michael Sampson - Currents

We had some teething problems over the days, mostly due to poor WiFi in the hotel, but on the whole it did actually work. But I ate different food, was away from home, and the ambient noise in downtime SF was significantly higher than at home – all through the day and night. Last month I flew to San Francisco for a week of meetings. My new colleagues at Silverside were coming across for a conference the week of February 20, so we split the distance and met half way.
