    Hotels Offer Incentives to Ditch the Housekeeping

    You can get rewards points or free drinks by agreeing to sleep in an unmade bed. (Published Wednesday, March 7, 2018)

    Did you make your bed this morning? Did you change the sheets?

    If sleeping in an unmade bed on the same sheets doesn't bother you, then hotels are asking for permission to skip housekeeping in your room.

    Many chains have given you the option of skipping fresh towels before, but now they're rewarding you if you take them up on it.

    Some hotels are offering free food and drink vouchers if you go without housekeeping for an extended stay.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    Other chains will give you additional reward points which you can cash in for things like upgrades or a free night stay.

    It's incentive to save the hotel on laundry costs and protects the environment.

    Starwood hotels currently offers the program as does Caesar Entertainment Resorts.
