Have you ever noticed that a hotel may have anywhere from three to six elevators, but only one or two appears to be working?
It drives me crazy…especially at check-out when foot traffic is at its peak (and you stand there waiting).
My stay this weekend at the Swissotel in Chicago was completely different.
Their elevator keypads do not have up or down arrows; instead, you input your room number.
A computer quickly determines which elevator car you will ride in (in this case, A through F) and indicates it in the blue field.
When that elevator’s door opens, you see your floor — and that of other passengers — listed on the side panel.
And off you go.
During my overnight stay in Chicago, I rode the elevator several times between my room, the conference center and the lobby…and I was in at least four of the six available elevator cars.
