Annoying how the hospitality industry cut corners for COVID precautions but now are still keeping those corners cut just due to it saving money. Think it'll ever return back to normal completely?

The odds are low. Everyone wants to give as little product for as much money as possible.

I actually like the fact that rooms aren’t being serviced daily anymore. Do we (or, the environment) actually need someone cleaning a bedroom, bathroom or towels daily?

The Marriott 2020 annual report boasts of both short term and permanent cost savings coming out of Covid-driven changes. I hate it a lot because there was a promise that if you stayed x nights, you’d get breakfast, lounge access, late checkouts, eligibility for suite upgrades, etc. We held up our end of the deal and now properties are refusing to provide what was promised in exchange for the nights stayed and spending. Hyatt is doing a much better job of providing promised benefits than Marriott is.

Any examples?

Nice hotel I'm staying at doesn't clean the room every morning anymore, and there used to be constant served apps and deserts on the floor's lounge. Not anymore due to COVID

Random question. How can someone find out if they’ve been blacklisted? Is that still a thing? Is there a “rate my professor” but for producers/creatives going around? Things aren’t going well job wise and yes, it’s a pandemic... but I need to know if it’s Covid-19 ruining my life or mean girl tactics.

Hi— I recently lost my job because of having covid for too long along with another disability that required me to work from home occasionally in a job that hated that (I know how illegal this is, I’m working on it). I’ve been in the hunt for a while but am having hard time staying afloat mentally after rejection after rejection. Does anyone have any advice? I’m bitter being in this situation to begin with but really feeling hopeless. Help!

Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next

Just read the sad news of the death of 1st AD John Nolan. (See wheresspot for thread) While I hope be didn't contract Covid on either of the 2 sets mentioned prior to his illness and death, if it comes back that he did, we need to have a long hard chat about what went wrong. Condolences to his family. Truly horrible news.
