A number of years ago, there was an incentive for guests - don’t want your room cleaned ? Get rewarded with merchandise credits? To spend on gifts . Probably work with less staffing if fellow guests take the money and refuse cleaning service.
Exactly, I rarely want service even in a week. I don’t change my sheets at home every few days, to say the least. I need towel exchange, and maybe more toiletries. If housekeeping is so overworked, isn't that a huge help for the hotel, and a tip to the housekeeping?
