I’ve gotten 50k from them for water out for 2 hours. Email the GM

Is this a case question asking me to estimate how many points of light there are in a floor of the JW Marriott Houston? Challenge accepted. I figure that the average hotel floor has about 30 or 40 rooms and each room has a light for, at least, the bathroom, closet, entryway, and two on the nightstands. So, at least five lights per room. So 40 room x 5 lights minimum per room = 200 points of light silenced by this power outage.

Those hallway lights are probably countered out by ones that come on for emergencies when power goes out. I will create a deck of other factors I should have considered, put it on a USB stick and feed it to my dog to make a perfect excuse for my incompetence.
