Oct 28th 2010 10:27AM Who has the time? Just buy a guidebook - you are getting a professional to do the research for you. Trouble is quality is not always consistent - read guidebook reviews before buying.
Jul 28th 2010 10:46AM I agree completely. Nothing leaves a worse taste in your mouth than having a splendid hotel room then having to walk around the block with your i-phone looking for a free wifi-spot, because it is quicker and cheaper than buying a stupid wifi card from the front desk. And those usually don't work the way they say on the back, requiring assistance from a concierge who doesn't even own a computer.
To all the McKinsey et al . consultants out there - it's time to start thinking about the whole package, unbundling wifi will not work in a world with free competition. It just pisses the client off. And if you think I don't care about wasting my employer's money when I'm on business travel -think again- I actually beleive in my company's vision and mission and minimising costs - that's what the other half of your clients are paying you $400 per hour to build!
May 9th 2010 4:11PM free Wifi - essential amenity in any hotel post-2008. All hotels that charge $20 per day for WIFI should think twice. As a customer, even if money is no object, it still means a trip down to the front desk and scratching stupid little coupons and getting on a helpline trying to figure out how to enter the numbers. Just get with the times, these days Wifi is like the air we breath - even McDonalsds has it... now you don't want your customers running across the road to McDonalds so they don't have to pay the lousy $20 for wifi do you?
May 8th 2010 2:41PM pity your cms chopped off half your letter and wasted my time of what I was hoping would be an ungloved bust-up.... maybe I should do a google image search so I can find out what you were really trying to say here...
May 6th 2010 10:11PM Ok you rules freaks - most travelers don't know the rules, when we moved to DC we had no money and got towed twice. This is a fair warning to any traveler read the signs very carefully because: 1) towing companies are predatory, regardless of the rules 2) restaurants should probably revisit their policies on towing cars in their own lots at 9pm -especially if you serve dinner 3) the rules about an affidavit and rental cars are stupid and they apply to Austin and they are unfriendly to tourists - its a fair warning. I think people who get towed should just call the police and make it a stolen vehicle issue. That way police may consider cracking down on the towing companies for being profiteering vigilantes preying on tourists.
Apr 11th 2010 11:48AM Is that a tazmanian tiger on the Tazmania tourism logo? That really speaks to me, it says.. We are the country that makes our largest megafauna go extinct!
Feb 21st 2010 8:06AM Tiger farms are a huge conservation problem. They advocate legalizing the trade in tiger parts. This could have huge effects on wild tiger populations because it will provide a legal market where poached tigers can be laundered. There are NO south China tigers left in the wild and the runts in captivity are inbred and fewer than 12 have not been crossed with Siberian tigers. The only tigers in China are those that stray across the border from Russia and Myanmar, and their prospects for survival are low, as they will be poached to supply China's illegal demand for use of this species in traditional Chinese medicine. These businesses should not be supported with your $$ if you care about wild tiger conservation.
Feb 15th 2010 7:46AM Fantastic idea - I was following all the way, he kept me on the edge of my seat, without the sore butt from sitting on several 36-hour busrides!
