Broken: Hotel pool hours

Here's the pool at an Embassy Suites hotel in Austin, Texas.

The sign reads "Pool Hours, 9 AM - 10 PM".

This business hotel closes the pool at exactly the hours when business travelers would want to use it.


This person obviously doesn't go to hotels much...

Pools are always open during the day when lifeguards or at least other help is available.

No one ever said that pools were there for business travelers--they are there for families.

Actually, I went to the embassy Suites in San Fran,

There was a ton of kids in the pool but not a single lifeguard or supervisor to be seen. The only ture supervisors where parents, keeping an eye on their kids.

This reminds me of most businesses in Down Town Seattle that open and close and aproximately the same time. This makes everyone who works at any of those businesses that have the same hours, a lunch break to do all of there shoping.

Even the Bank of America on the corner of where I work is closed by the time I get off work. The bank isn't open on weekend either, forcing me to wait untill Monday to cash my check.

Just when am I suposed to go shoping?

It seems to me that shops and stores would get a lot more business if they had different hours.

I don't understand why they close pools at hotels. I went at 9:45pm one time and i only had 15 minutes to swim!

A lot of hotels do that, and none of them have lifeguards anyway. If I ever get a hotel, I'll have a 24-hour pool, with lifeguards, or, if I can't afford that, A huge sign that says "Swim at your own risk"

FIRST! First broken thing, that is.

Well, they just don't want to be held responsible if they find a dead kid floating in the pool in the morning. They'll just say he wasn't supposed to swimming at night.
