Important question- Showers?
« on: July 09, 2017, 11:10:25 AM »
I am a person who has to have her shower daily, maybe 2 with so many people around.  I am staying at the Hyatt and have a question about the availability of hot water.  Do they ever run out and if so, is there a better time than not to take a shower?  Thanks in advance!

Personally Ive never had a problem with them running out of hot water, but I imagine in the mornings around 8 or 9 it could be an issue. Typically i go down and eat breakfast in my PJ's then go up and shower around 10ish.

I think in some of the hotels there might be on demand hot water, I think that's how it is in the Marriott so that you don't have to worry about water running cold. But honestly never ever had a problem with water :)

Yeah, don't stay in the hilton then; they've had hot water issues the last couple years. Hopefully they have it fixed now.   ::)

I stay at the Hilton every year and I have not had any issues with the showers- as previously mentioned 10:00 am is a pretty good time to get the Con grime off of you!

i guess i'm just lucky.  :-\  the last two years the water has run hot and cold (usually back and forth within a few seconds, and during the same shower).  one year they admitted to having boiler problems, so there was *no* hot water on monday.  not happy.  paying too damn much to take cold showers. >:(

Since this is my first con, I am a bit worried about the later in the week hygiene of some.  I have already heard horror stories

Hot water is good. Helps when taking a shower.
