Thank you for this, Kaiserdr.
I have IB. In the past I have built certain things into the rules, such as notifying us of any allergies or sensitivities before booking. The rules are, of course, posted on the listing, on their contract, and in the room proper.
I like to know what they are doing before arriving and what their schedules will be. We’ve managed to stave off a few disasters this way thinking it’s a hop skip to Toronto.
We also get a lot of people hoping to immigrate to Canada, doctors on rotation, and engineers on co-op. All of this information helps me address their needs more specifically. Engineers and MDs taking exams will require a lot of quiet and appreciate a bowl of home made chili (shhhh!) whereas potential immigrants need a lot of feedback on the “how to”'s. Both myself and the guest can start preparation.
