Most annoying hotel guests revealed
Expedia releases the results of the inaugural Expedia 2015 Hotel Etiquette Study, which asked 1,022 Americans to rank the frustrating, sneaky, sometimes quirky behaviour exhibited by their fellow hotel guests.
By a slight margin, ?Inattentive Parents? ? parents who let their kids run wild ? are the most aggravating hotel guests, having been called out by 67 percent of Americans.
64 percent of Americans are frustrated by ?Hallway Hellraisers?, while 54 percent complained about ?The Complainers?, or guests who berate hotel staff over minor inconveniences.
The full list of hotel etiquette violations, from most to least annoying:
1. Inattentive Parents ? 67 percent
2. The Hallway Hellraisers ? 64 percent
3. The Complainers ? 54 percent
4. The In-Room Revellers (noisemakers nearby) ? 52 percent
5. The Bickerers ? 26 percent
6. The Poolside Partiers ? 22 percent
7. The Loudly Amorous (indiscreet love makers) ? 21 percent
8. The Hot Tub Canoodlers (amorous couples in a public hot tub) ? 20 percent
9. The Business Bar Boozer (sloshed business travellers) ? 12 percent
10. The Elevator Chatterbox ? 6 percent
?While etiquette violations differ, they tend to come down to the same behaviour: whether or not guests respect the strangers in close proximity to them,? says?John Morrey, vice president and general manager, Expedia.com.
