Hooray hooray!! I just got a call from the Hyatt and the executive guy tells me I have to pay $2000 for what my roommates did to our room. (Hair dye everywhere). I seriously doubt that the repairs would be that much. Yes, the handicap rails have to be replaced cuz they have dye on them, but they can't be $2000! I'll go in there and fix everything myself!

Whats going on? Someone help!

This is why you collect info on who your roommates are, including a way to contact them should something like this occur.

I have their addresses, phone numbers and whatnot.


But its my name on the room, so apparently I can't do anything.

Um >_< I don't really know what to say to that.

How do they know it was your roomate that did it though? That's my question. Did they link the hairdye from the room and the owner to the marks on the walls? I would contess that but it appears your roommate got caught red-handed [or whatever color the hair dye is, bad joke I know.]


I would foward this complaint to your friend, though if he/she doesn't do anything you will get the end of the punishment stick since the room was registered under your name. This is something out of our hands sadly. When you check into the hotel they have a stolen/damaged property clause. You might be able to barter or cut a deal with them but I highly doubt it since they make you sign forms when you check into a hotel room [It's been a while since I had a room under my name, do they still do this?].

This is why we stress DO THE HAIRDYE AT HOME! DO NOT DYE YOUR HAIR AT THE HOTEL, it stains and this is a perfect example of what the consquences are.

EDIT: If your friend decides to chicken out on this, you can attempt to take legal action but since you only did a verbal agreement with him/her I am not sure how well this can hold up in a court room.

The hotel holds all the aces here. Pay the bill off quickly as possible. The longer you delay the more your credit rating suffers. Trying to fight the fee in court will cost you more than $2000.

Wow. This is why you make sure you know who your roomates are. Get their information and make them pay or split it. Your equally at fault since you let that go on. In my room that would NEVER happen.

This is why hair dying is extremely discouraged. It's important your roomates are aware not to do this as well. NEVER EVER DYE YOUR HAIR AT THE HOTEL OR CONVENTION CENTER AND NEVER LET ANYONE ELSE DO IT EITHER. In the future, room with people who you know personally and can trust. That, or make sure you have multiple forms of communication with all roomates (IM, cell, address, email, etc).

God I'm sorry to hear that. The same kind of thing happened to me with my roommates. I ended spending sunday cleaning up my room. Not doing it again, I will pay for a room myself next year.

If it were me, I'd figure out which one of your room mates had their hair dyed and go after them for the money. Granted your name is on the room so the Hyatt is turning to you, but you can go after your roommates because that's a lot of money for someone to pay on their own.

Um, Spydie said these were her friends so she obviously knew them personally.

I am very sorry about this Spydie. :( I wish I could help, but I am poor.

I'm trying. I've got the info on the "murder of the emo kid in the bathroom" (as we are calling it now) of the two who committed it. I think I'm going to post something on /b/ and get them harassed.

Right, but I said people she knows personally AND can trust. Obviously she can't trust people who cause damage and avoid helping. =/

Well, I could possibly trust someone and then they could lose my trust. It is very simple to lose trust.

How old was your roommate? If they still live at home I would get their parents aware of this so they don't get off scott-free. When you are in charge of a room, you are pretty much the landlord for that time period and you need to lay down the law and ground rules, if necessary make them sign an agreement like you have to when you check into a room. It sounds extreme but it's your responbility to make sure your roommates follow the rules and it isn't a free-for-all. I know I am sounding harsh but you learned a very big lesson on who you can trust and who is responsible.

Harassment won't get you anywhere, get who is neccessary involved since your Dad is well aware of the situation ask for help. If you have this person harassed it will most likely end up really ugly.

Don't harass them, it'll only make a bad situation worse. As the person who's name is on the room, you are responsible for the other people staying in the room and making sure they behave. I would get your parents involved and let them know that the people responsible are blowing you off.

Its really bogus. I mean if they would actually talk to me about it, I wouldn't be such a bitch, but they're flat out ignoring me.


And now they've turned it all around and told me that I made the entire mess. I don't think so.

Ok, we need to take this out of the forums so I can try and help you out. Please msg me on AIM so I can help you out before this gets out of hand.

EDIT: I know this sounds mean but you need to put your GRRR face on with them and tell them pay it up or take it to small claims court. Get their parents involved, family, something. I don't want you to just sit here and take it. I am telling you from experience of what I have seen with friends, when it comes to hotel rooms you need to be the responsible one and monitor things. It is not only your fault for letting it happen it is your friends fault for not listening when we extremely stress do not dye your hair in hotel rooms.

Please do.


And I'd like to add that these two owed me $20 for dinner on thursday and some money mysteriously disappeared right after my friend gave me the cash for her dinner.



I do admit that I contributed to the mess. I did dye my hair that weekend. Black. The same black they used. But somehow, the walls looked just about the same when I finished.
