Manufacturer’s Perspective: Hotel FF&E Worth Your Money

True story: A couple in their 60s found a room in an upscale hotel operating under an internationally recognized brand. As usual, the husband tried to set up his laptop on the desk. He searched for the outlet he was used to finding in the lamp base but found a USB port instead.
