Just back from a good, productive stay in a splendid room with a killer view at a large, popular full-service Marriott in a major metropolitan center, where I'm pulling my hair out because the light is streaming into room long before I want/need to wake up each morning. ... So, I ask you, Marriott-Bonvoy Insider Fellow Travelers and Road Warriors: how important is it to you that your room be dark (when you want it to be dark)? Should Marriott invest in black out blinds that work? How close is good enough?
Have you experienced the top-of-the-line best-in-class electronic (sometimes wall-mounted, sometimes remote) fully retractable, adjustable exterior (or recessed) black out (venetian) blinds? Oooooooh, yeah, that's the ticket. Died and gone to heaven, blah, blah... A couple of examples:
- what you see in many of the buildings (offices, homes, hotels) in Geneva - https://www.griesser.ch/en/products/external-venetian-blinds/
- I've enjoyed them in at least one Marriott property - https://insiders.marriott.com/thread/54676 - so I know it can be done....
Like all things in life, once you've seen the obvious solution to a problem, it begs the question: why don't all hotels install these?
What say you?
