Here’s something I didn’t know about hotels. Halfway through my stay at the Sheraton Wall Centre here in Vancouver, I decided to extend my stay by one night. Today I went up to my room, but couldn’t get in (the little lock light flashed red, not green).
This happens all the time to me–I think I have a wonky magnetic field that kills access cards. When I went downstairs to get a replacement, however, I learned that it was because I hadn’t received a new card when I extended my stay.
I asked, and I gather that the card knows how long it’s valid for. That makes complete sense, but I’d never actually thought through it.
I know that’s fairly lame, but what can I tell you? It’s been a busy week.
