Hotel Madness: Gadling's tournament of hotel pet peeves

gadling hotel madness pet peeves
Like many of you, we're very excited about the NCAA basketball tournament. We'll be filling out brackets and putting off work to watch the games. However, that doesn't mean that we stop thinking about travel. In honor of March Madness, we've put together our own tournament of hotel pet peeves. Welcome to Hotel Madness, the ultimate bracket of things that drive us insane at hotels. You'll be choosing the winners of each match-up by voting in polls, meaning that you'll decide the ultimate Hotel Madness champion.

What do we hope to accomplish over the course of the next three weeks? Most likely hotels aren't going to change their abhorrent behavior, but we'll have plenty of fun blowing off steam and mocking the most annoying aspects of staying at a hotel.

All this week we'll be running the first round match-ups and asking you to place your votes for hotel pet peeves that bother you the most. From the lack of free wifi to filthy television remotes, all of your least favorite things at hotels are represented in the tournament. Only one can be champion and you'll decide the winner.

Below is a key so you can decipher all of those icons. First round match-ups will begin today and we'll have descriptions of each pet peeve. All of our first round match-ups are now live and listed below. Be sure to vote and tell all of your friends. Welcome to Hotel Madness, the tournament of hotel horribleness!
