Hotel Central Reservation Systems are Unhelpful

Pet Peeve Alert!

When deciding on a hotel, often I will call the property's direct/local number for answers to specific room and/or amenity questions. It seems that more and more often the local properties are anxious to transfer me to a central reservations person who does not work on-site. In fact, these people are often hundreds or thousands of miles away inside a cubicle-filled service center or working from a home office.
