From Holiday Inn Housekeeping: Due to having so many people staying with us we are running extremely low on clean towels. Many people have placed their “Do Not Disturb” signs on their door and we aren’t able to collect dirty towels to be laundered. Please spread the word with your group that if you have dirty towels in your room to please place them in the hallway in the morning so housekeeping can pick them up and have them washed. That way when you need new clean towels we will have them readily available.
