I think life would be so much easier for front desk staff at Fairfield Inns, Springhill Suites for the most part, that I am fully aware of how the breakfast set up works.
I think it is very nice and I have absolutely no issue with the staff addressing this but if there was a check on the computer screen saying they don't need to tell me this, I believe things would be much "simpler" for both parties.
I have been in a line where I have heard the front desk staff tell this to the the three or more parties in a row checking in. I want to sa, but will not due to sounding rude, I already heard how it works.
Just trying to make life easier and if I'm wrong please let me know.
I suppose if you want to check in faster and get to your room, then yes.
In my case, my wife really loves to socialize and get on the "good side" of hotel staff, so she likes to spend more time chatting with them and extend the check-in process. She doesn't mind hearing the same spiel at each hotel because she finds a way to strike up friendly conversation and make staff feel good with her charms. And I like that she does this, because it helps get us better service.
