So, we get in our room just fine, and we leave soon afterwards. I realized I forgot my concert tickets for later tonight, and went to go get them. Tried my key and it didn't work. No light flash on the NFC reader. (battery in nfc reader is dead)
I bring this problem to the front desk, and they say they can't replace the battery, so they are gonna go get the crowbar. They apparently don't have the device required to recharge these fucking things.
Well I wasn't arguing the protocol, just saying I've never seen anything like that in a hotel. I've seen them used for secure locations, for home, etc but just never at a hotel. Shoulda figured it'd just be a bit of time before it happened.
They sent the manager with the override key to the wrong room. I tried to tell the manager this when I saw her, but she directed me to the front desk and said I had to verify my ID before she could open my door.
OH MY FREAKING DOG. I better get some free shit out of this.
