What Are the Most Inappropriate Guest Conducts You Have Ever Seen in a Hotel or a Restaurant?

Time can change a lot of things. When people show more understanding of others and become more acceptant to our diverse society, certain behaviors that used to be considered “blizzard” will no longer be seen as “inappropriate.” Decades ago, for example, people of colors were not allowed to ride in the front of a bus or eat in a fine dining restaurant. Thank goodness, those times have become history. The questions are: When can we draw the line for changes? And who is entitled to define the appropriate or inappropriate behaviors?

This NBC News video brings up an interesting case of hotel operations --- Is the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis Missouri doing the right thing by kicking a lesbian couple out of the property because they were kissing in the hotel’s jacuzzi? According the interview, the hotel received complaints from other guests and believes that kissing (either between heterosexual or homosexual couples) is one of those inappropriate conducts in the property.

Different from this Four Seasons in St. Louis, some other hotel chains and cruise lines are promoting their gay-friendly culture. What do you think of the approach used by the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis? What are your thoughts on those gay-friendly hotels, resorts, and restaurants? As a guest in a hotel or a restaurant, what are the most inappropriate or annoying behaviors you have ever seen? If you work in a hotel or a restaurant, how does your company define inappropriate guest behaviors? And what approaches your company will take when handling undesirable guest conducts?
