ACen 11.

Someone--we thought it was a guy who'd broken in at the time, and now suspect it was a room resident with a serious drinking problem--absolutely demolished our hotel room while we were out. I'm talking pictures ripped down, candy and food mashed into the carpet, melted M&Ms smeared across every glass surface, sodas upended everywhere, all the bedding and towels soaking wet (covered in smashed candy, natch) piled in our shower. The room was unlivable. Since we thought someone had broken or sneaked in, we didn't feel comfortable leaving any of our stuff there, so we had to mooch off other friends for storage space, and we had to crash on the candy-coated floor. The hotel manager didn't believe our story about mysterious hooligans (why would he), and we had to add a massive cleaning fee to our bill.

Also our alcoholic roommate tried to start multiple fights and I had to babysit him all weekend.

So, yeah, not my best con.

That is ridiculous.....I hope you have since refused to room with said alcoholic roommate..and I also hope said roommate has started to get some help for his drinking behaviors...

@Mizuki--We had no one to go to, really. We reported the incident to hotel management, but in the absence of any evidence of outside perps, the responsibility fell to us. Mainly I just nursed a beer in my destroyed room in shock, then said "screw it" and stayed out of the room as much as possible.
@Crimson--I'll never room with him again, nor put up with any drama caused by him. I'm the guy he'd call when things went sour or when he was drunk and wandering the video rooms alone at 1 in the morning, or the guy our mutual friend would call when he was screaming at people in line out front of the Hyatt. He's cleaned up a bit since, but I'll never answer those phone calls again.
