The Diary of Anne Ku

A PRISONER IN NEW YORK
Windows you cannot open - even if you could, it's minimal or noisy outside - so you wouldn't.
Refrigerator you can't use - because it's full of electronically tagged items. If you open a compartment and take something out, then you will be billed for it.
Ridiculous call charges:
I asked for a non-adjoining room, non-smoking floor, quiet room, high floor, one bed as I was staying here for a week. But these five requirements were too much for this hotel. Instead, seeing that it was my first stay and that I was so difficult to please, the front desk upgraded me to an executive room which entitled me to breakfast. The breakfast was hardly worth waiting for - as it was in a crowded diner full of tourists.
