Casual Hotel Nudity on TV.
« on: July 25, 2019, 12:20:59 AM »
I usually don't watch a TV show called Hotel Impossible.  Its about some guy who goes to independent hotels having management troubles, and helps the owner redecorate and upgrade management to improve their business. 

Today I saw Season 5, Episode 1.  It featured an 50 room place called "Streamline Hotel" in Daytona Beach, Florida, near the auto race track.  Somewhere in the middle of the episode they got a big bank loan and planned to close for 30 days while they renovated.  The owner talked about taking care of residents who lived in the hotel while they renovated.  The TV film editor cut in a few seconds of a male resident standing naked in the hallway talking casually with some lady from maid service.  The maid's cleaning cart had been strategically placed to censor his parts, but he was clearly casually naked in the hotel hallway.  I had to back up the program and look again to be sure that's what I saw.

I didn't hear or see any mention of Clothing Optional or casual nudity anywhere else in the program. They just assumed that casual nudity wasn't worth talking about on the program, although it was shown.  Maybe its a trend toward more people being naked in hotels as part of the general hotel industry.  This show makes a big deal about upgrading the hotel industry. 

Anyway if you happen to see Hotel Impossible, Show S5 E1, watch for the naked man in the hallway.

Tried to find it, Bob but it's a paid view in the UK so left it.
Apparrently, people sleepwalking nude in hotel corridors and even down into the foyer is quite common.
Personally, of course, the first thing I do when shutting a hotel door on arrival is to get naked.  Any interactions with room service staff or whatnot is then done wrapped in a towel or the hotel dressing gown.  My guess is that hotel staff tend to walk in on and otherwise encounter lots of naked people who have no inhibitions about receiving their room service dressed as nature intended.

I'm getting to where I watch less and less TV, period. Most of what poses as news seems to be made up as they go. If I want to watch fiction I go to a movie channel.

Anything that has reality in the name probably isn't.

My experience with hotel guests was at Canyon Ranch, an upscale health spa in Tucson. There was usually talk of some guest undressed, or leaving cabin windows uncovered for people to look in. Most were not that way. Most of the employee talk was about the frequent celebrity that stayed there, which we were sworn to never mention outside of the resort. Then the excesses of the extremely rich.

People covered with towels generally, if someone arrived at their door at an importune time.

I had a celebrity talk show host get undressed in the back of a van that I was driving him in. Somehow to impress the woman that he was with. Didn't seem to register that I had a rear view mirror above the dash.

It had nude sunbathing sections on the roof of one of the buildings. People liked to show off their health in sexy swimsuits and exercise outfits, or fish for wealthy mates.

As staff, we were trained to ignore any games or nudity, you know, anonymity and customer always always right. Besides, we didn't want to take a chance of embarrassing a guest. Our head would roll, not theirs.

So, two or three times a week, somebody would do some nudity as a stunt, more often, not casual. This was high end. The low end could be different.

I get dressed, register, get to the room and immediately get renude. Hmm, renude, renewd....

Funnily enough, Canyon Ranch also exists in Massachusetts, and it sounds much the same. As I've mentioned, I've been volunteering for years to run a hiker cabin that's on a lake where the Appalachian Trail passes by, and Canyon Ranch sometimes sends groups of intrepid guests by to get some adventure with their health cure. One time quite a while back, which must have been early in the summer, the Canyon Ranch trainers came by for an orientation trip without any guests, and we had a nice chat about life on the trail providing a few services for hikers, versus life at the ranch pampering rich people. We finished up with a swim in the lake, and I very boldly said I don't bring a swimsuit there, and they didn't object to me swimming nude. None of them did the same, but I recall a couple of women being topless. Not much of a big deal, but it was somewhat memorable.

Same owners, same people developed it...That was more than twenty years ago, however. Things have changed, Zuckermen's sold it.
