I feel like that would add extra time to a housekeepers day for every single room because of all the double checking. Your room isn't serviced by the same housekeeper everyday. Not everyone gets their room serviced every day. So each time a particular housekeeper sevices a room they would have to check what reservation a particular room has at that time and then check how many people and then know exactly what the person wants and the combination. It's not just how many people are on the reservation but what they prefer. I use 2 towels whenever available just for me. I don't mind if there isn't one available but I do prefer it. The number of people on the reservation would be inaccurate for my preferences immediately off the bat. I know I'm not the only one either who uses 1 towel for my body and 1 towel for my hair.I don't understand why the number of people checking in to a room isn't added to the housekeeper's sheet at every hotel across the country. It seems like common sense to me and would cut down on extra calls to rooms and unnecessary laundry.
I just see that as time consuming. I hear you that it would be ideal if everytime they just knew each time the room is serviced exactly how many towels and what combination you want. On the other hand doing it for every hotel reservation as opposed to just the ones that call or request some other way more I'm sure works out better in terms of resources used and time spent. I think a larger portion of people would be more upset in the end if their rooms were serviced at a slower pace and you would still have people calling in for more if they purely looked at how many people are on the reservation.
