Make me feel at home!

When I got in to my hotel room last night, it was brightly illuminated and the TV was on with music and a message to greet me. The first thing I did was turn it off, along with most of the lights.

Later, I asked at the reception when they turn on the lights. I was expecting them to have a central switch for each room that the receptionist could flip when the guest finished checking in and has started to make way towards the room.

Not so. The guy behind the desk told me that housekeeping sets it all up.

So my lights have been on and the TV blasting for the entire afternoon and evening. That did not make me feel at home. It made me cross.
