How May We Hate You by Anna Drezen and Todd Dakotah Briscoe

Most people think hotel employees are effortlessly cheerful, naturally helpful, and genuinely like their work.

Most people are wrong.

Find out what really goes on in the world of hospitality with this hilarious book full of funny and absurd stories, anecdotes told in dialogue, factoids, and hoax pop quizzes by two veteran concierges who paid their way while working at a combined 50 hotels in and around Times Square. They are very pleased to help you learn the following:
·         The Truth About Bed Bugs
·         The Mythology of “Loyalty Programs”
·         The 411 on Hotel Residents
·         And so much more

Filled with photographs and infographics, How May We Hate You? is both romp and commentary on the hospitality industry and life behind the nametag. @goodreads



This book has some funny moments but I have to say the bedbug portion left me very disturbed! 0_0


This book is told by Anna Drezen and Todd Dakotah Briscoe who both worked as Concierge. The things people said to them or asked them was hilarious and crazy!

GUEST: I need a salon appointment. Wash and blow Saturday at 12. (Concierge makes appointment)

CONCIERGE: All right. You are confirmed for a wash and blow at Bon-Bon Salon for Saturday at noon. (Guest rolls her eyes)

CONCIERGE: Is that all right?

GUEST: Well, I'm just very dubious about the quality of a salon that actually has space at 12 on a Saturday. Is there another one you recommend?

CONCIERGE: So you want me to recommend a salon that won't have space at the time you're requesting?

GUEST: Yeah. Let's try that.


GUEST: What floor is my on?

CONCIERGE: Which floor are you on?


CONCIERGE: The 5th floor.

GUEST: Great. Thanks!

These people are crazy :-) There are things like this through-out the book along with lists of tips and random stuff about people, places and things. I think one of my favorite is about a woman named Princess that lives in one of the hotels. She's old and seems like she's off her rocker. But she's funny.

I liked some of the reviews of hotels. I have never read any kind of stuff like that as I don't travel any more anyway, but they were fun to read.


All in all it's a cute funny little book!

*I would like to thank Blogging for Books for a print copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
