Stories and statistics from the Octoberfest
A packed PLATZL HOTEL
Each day of the Octoberfest sees the PLATZL HOTEL fully booked right down to its very last room – and 2018 was no exception. To give you an idea, our operations manager has captured some incredible numbers:
- Our Octoberfest guests used a total of 12,379 towels (including 6,206 shower towels)
- 2,481 bedsheets, 2,970 duvet covers and 7,714 pillowcases were changed
- 3 Dirndl and 2 pair of Lederhosen were left behind in the rooms
Curious stories which only be written by the Octoberfest
Truly fascinating figures for just two weeks of hotel operations – but the Octoberfest doesn’t just produce statistical superlatives, it also throws up some curious stories as well. For instance, one Octoberfest guest asked us after his departure to help him reconstruct his evening with the aid of cellphone videos.
Our favorite anecdote however comes from our nightshift colleagues. They were quite astonished one early morning when a guest suddenly appeared before them in his birthday suit. He had – for some reason or other – locked himself out of his room naked. Our colleagues gave him a new room card and one of the 12,379 towels so he could cover himself up.
We are already looking forward to next year and more funny Octoberfest moments!
