DID YOU KNOW?

The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee has long been rumored to be haunted, many claiming the ghost of the former owner roams the building, checking in on guests.

In 2001, Adrian Beltre claimed he kept hearing knocking noises behind the headboard, but he refused to confirm that he slept with his baseball bat.

Cincinnati slugger Adam Dunn may have added another chapter in the 113-year history of the hotel. The Reds recently played in Milwaukee during a heat wave, and the air conditioning in the hotel wasn't proving much relief.

Dunn took a cold shower, then went to sleep on top of his sheets because it was too hot to be covered. Dunn, however, forgot to latch his door.

As Hall of Fame sportswriter Hal McCoy of the Dayton Daily News put it, "a maid walked in to discover the naked truth of how hot it was."

Great...I'll be staying at the Pfister a week from Monday. I'll have to just bury my head in the sand and ignore whether my room might have been the one Dunn stayed in.

Yeeeechhhhhh.

Is this true?

That's nasty if true, though it doesn't affect me since I always take my own covers and pillows and sleep on the floor when I stay in a hotel.

You can confirm this by looking at the maid carts. You'll see sheets, towels, washcloths, blankets, but no bedspreads.

I can confirm that. We happen to live within sight of what used to be a days inn here in Chicago. I will say that people will do almost anything on top off the bedspread (amazing what you will see with a good pair of binoculars) so if you haven't been one to immediately put it on the floor when you get in the room I suggest you do.

This will conclude my public service announcement

I spend at least 2 nights per week in a hotel, often more.

My ritual upon entering a room is to pull the bed-spread on the floor and check beneath and between the sheets. I also cary handy-disenfectant wipes and wipe down the TV remote and desk surface where I'll be working.

Beyond that, I spend very little time contemplating all the nastyness that goes on in those rooms. If I did, I'd have a nervous breakdown and wouldn't be able to travel.

Sometimes its just better not thinking about some things.

Err, what kind of hotels do you stay in exactly? :) Red Roof Inns?

As evidenced by this story nastyness takes place in all hotels, regardless of the quality or price range. The Pfister is a pretty fancy establishment...and even they have nakid ballplayers wallowing all over their beds.

I normally stay in Hyatts, Crown Plazzas or Holliday Inn Expresses (when in small towns) by the way. Doesn't matter.

When I first got hired at a radio station in Ocala I spent a few weeks in a hotel...the second hotel they sent me to until I could find a place to live...the first hotel when I went to check in asked if I had been there before. I said "no" they asked how long I would be staying I said only a short term...they then asked if by that I meant only a few hours or if I needed the room the entire night.

Perhaps he was sleeping on top of the sheets, rather than the bedspread. Regardless, damn I wish I was that maid!

One thing that's weird though... except in Europe, I don't think I've EVER stayed in a hotel where the door doesn't lock automatically. I have had a maid walk in when I was in Amsterdam... it was not the appropriate moment, believe me.

Even a locked door in the US doesn't guarantee the maid will not walk in. Usually the knock and say "Housekeeping", and then immediately unlock the door and walk in, giving you no time to answer them, much less get to the door to intercept them. So, if you happen to be in the shower, you're pretty much screwed. I have had this happen to me on multiple occasions... finally I got smart and put the Do Not Disturb sign on the door even if I was leaving at 7:30 in the morning (they usually start cleaning rooms around 7).

Here is a true story.

My brother was a manager of a middle of the road chain hotel. He got a late night phone call at the front desk from a mother of a 18 month old. She was screaming and demanded he come to the room. He ran to the room and the mother was still crying and screaming. He said, "what's wrong?" She said that her son was crawling around on the floor and got under the bed. When she pulled him out he had a used condom in his mouth. She said, "what do I do, what do I do??" He said, "uh...I'm sorry and I'll give you a certificate for a free room in the future.":laugh: :laugh:

I'm reporting to you live from the Pfister Hotel in beautiful and sunny downtown Milwaukee, WI.

I am currently in my room. I doubt this was Adam Dunns room because it's kinda small but you never know (and frankly I don't really want to think about it much).

I'll keep my eyes peeled because I think the Rockies are in town and this is where the ballplayers usually stay.

Be sure to get a fresh bedspread as GAC suggested.

Bedspread has already been pulled off the bed. The phone, remote controll and desk have all be wiped down with disenfectant wipes.

Beyond that, I choose to live in denial.

That is one of the raunchiest stories I have ever heard. That is nasty. I would be furious if I even saw an opened one in a room, used or unused, let alone in my kids mouth. ughh
