I've spent quite a bit of time on business travel over the last year. I always try to get a Marriott to help with my points, but I also try to find one that has a hot tub. To me, that's the best part of the trip. Coming back from long meetings and just enjoying the hot, circulating water for as long as I can stand it.
I've notice something, though. About 50 percent of the time, there is a sign in the pool area that says "Spa Under Maintenance" or "Spa Closed". That is a huge disappointment and it doesn't seem to matter where I am. About half of the placed I've gone say the spa is under repair.
Am I off on this, or has anyone else seen this trend?
