LAUNDRY

CHECKOUT

LINEN

Please turn off when you leave the room (reducing energy costs will keep hotel room rates down).

Hotel 502 has 2 washers and driers. You will need a handy stash of quarters. Reception will provide you with washing powder.

Normally 12 noon but rules are made to be broken so please ask for an extension if you need it.

Let’s be up front. You are at a hotel. You want comfort and to be pampered. We will change your towels and bedding and make sure they are cleaned environmentally...so we don’t have a money saving policy where the card that you display means you don’t get fresh towels daily! Bed linen is changed every 2nd night. Please leave towels on the floor if you want them changed.

CLEANLINESS OR MAINTENANCE ISSUES

Please let us us know if you have an issue. We do try our very best, but are aware of how annoying it is not to have a great experience.

MEDICAL

COFFEE/TEA

Local medical emergency centre: address phone number

Instructions are written on the Keurig machine and the pods are included in the service charge. Enjoy!

RESTAURANT

ENVIRONMENT

Ours is opening soon for lunch and dinner. Until then we can offer some great recommendations (and no we don’t get a kickback ) within the new central Camelback eating precinct. Walk...don’t drive!

We are greening up - so please help by switching off lights and A/C, reusing towels and using the trash cans provided.

FEEDBACK...

We need positive feedback and we will deal with negative feedback. If you aren’t happy let us know. If you are happy then let the world know.

SECURITY

We have an onsite Security Guard present at all times. Just dial reception if an issue arises. We also have a locked safe available at reception for valuables.

GYM

24/7. Our gym is located in the north block on ground floor (you need your room key for access) Take a towel from reception... but if you don’t give it back $5 will be donated from your room account to our hotel! Alternatively L.A. Fitness across the road has day passes. Just do it!

SHOWER

Normally we require our guests to have an engineering degree to operate our vintage era shower. However if you don’t have the necessary qualifications, here are a few tips. So unwind the centre to get water to flow and use lever for hot and cold.

ICE

In some rooms hot water may take time to come though as it does have to travel from the centre of the earth! If this doesn’t work call the front desk and please do cover up when our staff visit to help you!

We have bags at reception if there is no ice machine at the end of your corridor. Bring your bucket and we will top you up! Alternatively head to the end of the North Block level 3 corridor.

STEALING STUFF

If you take things in the room by “mistake”, we will charge your credit card heavily as we have to spend time and money replacing things. So clock radios, charging ports etc. are off limits.

SWIMMING POOL/SPA

Yes at your own risk, please no glass, wear a bathing suit and please be very quiet if you swim after closing time. Towels can be checked in and out with our reception. Official hours are 8am to 11pm....but be quiet at other times and we are unlikely to find out! Pool towels are available from reception.

Surely we don’t have to tell you how a TV works? But if so, here’s a hint; point the button covered thing at the black box and press the buttons!

VENDING MACHINES

Are in the lobby and on most floors at far end (from lifts) off the corridors.

WAKE UP CALL

Aren’t you on holiday? Even so if you want to be woken (don’t ask us how to set the clock radio ...it’s far too technical!), dial 0 if you want a wakeup call...it’s easier!!

WIFI

Many have been fooled into thinking their smart phones will connect automatically for them (it is a smart phone after all ) but alas, you yourself must log in as usual with the user name and password given to you at check in.

TELEPHONE
