I'm writing a brief article about hotel wake up calls and would like to hear from people who have had problems with these calls. Did you miss a flight because the hotel didn't give you the requested wake up call? Were you late to an important business meeting? Or were you perhaps awakened at 3:00 am by a wake up call requested by the previous guest (not the best way to start a relaxing vacation). Your tale doesn't have to be dramatic -- but certainly if anyone out there missed his or her own wedding because of a faulty wake up call, I'd be happy to hear from you. Thanks!

Hi, Linda:

I once missed an early a.m. flight as a result of not receiving a wakeup call. The ensuing mad dash to the airport involved a pregnant woman and an off-duty cop. Let me know if you would like details.

Since we rarely stayed in hotels, it took us several days to work out why the phone kept ringing at 5am on our holiday-of-a-lifetime trip on the QE2. When we did realise, we turned it off without any difficulty, but I'm afraid I feel they should automatically re-set each cabin to no wake up call whenever there's someone new in it! Especially at 5am!
