Tales from the front desk

Here's a cute article from ArkansasBusiness.com about the life and times of a hotel front desk manager. I loved this bit:

    What’s the oddest request you’ve handled from a planner or organization regarding meetings?

    Each conference has its own topic of focus. No, our UFO Conference has not requested – but I am sure would have welcomed – a "flying saucer" landing in the parking lot. We did have to draw the line when we were asked if a leashed tiger could be brought into the convention center. They did agree to leave him in his cage outside.

It always amazes me when I hear of some things planners and hoteliers have to do to keep their attendees happy!
