For years, many large hotel chains dropped a free copy of the paper outside guests' rooms. But no more.
Seems hotels are cutting back on a paper that guests weren't bothering to read anyway.
"Not surprisingly, the newspaper ritual became less prevalent as hotels began rolling out another, more modern amenity: high-speed Internet access," writes Adam Hochberg. Hochberg quotes writer Tim Winship:
"I usually just kick it [the paper] inside when I go out in the morning," Winship said. "Then, when I come back, I bend over and put it in the trash can."Ouch!
