NewCommForum Good, Mold Bad

posted by DL Byron on March 02, 2006

I just had to quickly exit a meeting room here at the NewCommForum because of an allergic reaction to the mold in the rooms. I’d smelled it earlier, just a whiff, but being in the meeting rooms was too much. I’ll have to hang out, outside of the room, survive the panel, and then get out of here.

One of my favorite moments at the NewComm Forum was you standing politely at the front desk and pointing to a Sheraton coupon that said 100% satisfaction guaranteed. “But it wasn’t 100%,” you said - presumably because of the mold. Whatever happened? Did you get a free night’s stay?? :-)

Ha! That’s right. I was like, uhm, “having a severe allergic reaction in your hotel was not satisfying.” The first desk clerk offered my a free cocktail which also didn’t satisfy me and then the supervisor was very helpful and genuinely concerned. I think it was all the rain got in the air conditioner filters, rotted, and they were blowing mold throughout the hotel. I asked the audience during the panel if others were suffering and a few raised their hands. The end result was they gave me 1/2 off my stay, which I thought was fair.
