offering me a $10 credit (on a gift card) per night of my upcoming stay if I forgo housekeeping services .Has anyone else received a call/offer like this ?
I opted out of mousekeepjng at my recent stay at Pop for $10/night (less one night), but I asked about it at the front desk because I knew that policy was in place. But I didn't know they were actively soliciting guests on the phone with this offer. Interesting.....offering me a $10 credit (on a gift card) per night of my upcoming stay if I forgo housekeeping services .Has anyone else received a call/offer like this ?
It started last summer at just a few resorts. I think it was $20 a night discount at first, then it went to $15, and now it's been $10 a night for awhile.We've been going to WDW almost every year since 2002' always staying in value or moderate resorts and have never heard of this . How long have they been doing this ?
If that is the case the Housekeepers are taking naps on my bed because in an hour they should be able to count out enough towels, leave more toiletries, leave cups and coffee and actually clean the floor ...............Figuring the maids are making minimum wage and guesstimate about an hour per room I'm betting each room is about $30 /day (not even including cleaning supplies) - so that $10 savings to you is $20 to them.
The good thing about the housekeeping opt-out thing is that at eligible results, you can get it just by going to the front desk as I understand it. So even if they don't leave a message, just go to the front desk and ask. Again, as long as you're at a participating resort. (Pretty sure it's only an option at Values and Mods.)I would be interested to know if they call you at home before you arrive, what number or name will display on your phone? We among many screen calls and if they're unknown name unknown number we don't usually answer. If they don't leave a message we may miss an offer we might find perfect for us.
