I’m wondering if sentiment will be against me on this one as well. It wasn’t too long ago that I posted a question about whether hotels should pre-make pull-out sofa beds in guest rooms.
Most folks disagreed with me. I’m still sticking to my guns on that one. At any rate, I’ve got a new opinion question regarding sofa beds.
We recently stayed at a new Residence Inn by Marriott. I was generally okay with the room quality. Like my recent previous stays that spurred my original question, the sofa bed wasn’t made up when we arrived.
My wife was nice enough to make it up for me while I ran to the store to get an item we forgot to pack. She and the kids took the king bed while I collapsed on the pull-out sofa. Not my first choice, but I’m a light sleeper. This was the lesser of two evils with all 2 bedroom units sold out.
We woke up the next morning and departed for a day of fun visiting family. When we got back that night this is how the sofa bed looked.
My best recollection was that a portion of the comforter may have been on the floor when we left, but it certainly wasn’t on the floor. So, it’s possible housekeeping picked up part of it and put it on the bed. But, obviously no effort to make the bed.
Should They Have Made The Sofa Bed?
That’s my question for today. I’m firmly in the camp that believes the pull-out sofa should be made before a guest checks in. That means I’m definitely in the camp of folks who think that if the customer takes the time to make the bed initially, housekeeping should be responsible for making it each morning for the duration of our stay.
As an aside, they didn’t really make the bed properly in the bedroom, either. The comforter was mostly pulled up but the sheet wasn’t and the pillows are not rearranged neatly. So, this hotel may actually have a standard to make sofa beds but the housekeeper for our particular room was lazy.
