Here's an idea that might save some of Portland's failing high-end hotels. Something similar has already proven to be highly effective out toward the airport.

Finally, jobs for the creative class, wherein the qualification is the ability to produce body temperature. Let's build the convention center hotel after all.

Finally...A job that need nothing but a warm body. Now CEOs can actually accomplish something!

I love how one of the other suggested services is "reader", where staffers read to their guests at night. No, there's no correlation between extreme wealth and arrested development, is there?

I only have two words.....eeeewwwwww gross

Not to worry, Kathe - I'm sure in the US we'll automate the process, and figure out how to charge $10 for the service.

Echo.... eeeewwwwww gross... Good Gawd Man! I need to poke out my minds eye just visualizing the ....! I can't type what I'm thinking

But on a saner note, Allan L has a point about Oregon's creative class.

eeeeewwwwww!!!!!and eeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!
creepy....makes me shiver
What with all the news about bed bugs and the folks with the black lights and the body fluids on the walls of even the spendy hotels.
We could all end up like Howard Hughes.

The bedding in most hotels is bad enough. Why would you want to add the head lice, scabies, ticks, dander, pimple excudate, anal leakage, urine drops, and hair of a total stranger to "help you sleep" Double eeewww from this reader!
