At one point in time about the only thing you could expect when staying at one of the hotels was a room with a bed and a wash bowl to clean yourself up. If you needed a meal there was a cafe on site, but the meals were not free. You could, however, expect your room to be cleaned and the sheets on the bed changed, but if the weather was hot, you were lucky to get an electric fan.
From that sparse expectancy of the past developed a whole new idea in providing accommodations to weary travels. Now you get a comfort controlled environment, complimentary meals, and Whirlpool tubs to soak your tired and aching body.
