Two weeks ago we went to visit our first hotel - Hotel Giraffe. We took pictures and scrutinized the inside of the hotel. All the students made observations like: a hotel has a doorman, flowers, a woman who asks about bed size and an eating area.
We also drew pictures from our first hotel visit. Those sketches are going to help us plan the hotel set-up in our classroom.
This past Friday we set off to see the W Hotel armed with a big question - "Why do people go to hotels?"
Going inside the hotel, we made more observations. One child noticed that they had dog food by the entrance so we inquired and found out that some hotels are pet friendly!
Another noticed that the doors had slots for key cards. Someone saw carts for luggage and we all peeked inside a meeting room. One student made some inquiries at the front desk and we learned that 80% of the people who go to hotels are business people and 20% stay for pleasure.
We walked away from the beautiful hotel and exceedingly friendly staff with some yummy green apples and even yummier information.
One student cinched it when she said that hotel people want to be nice to us.
