Thank you all! Visible and invisible staff (EF and hotel!) and all attendees!

Well, I did seen furries who thought it was fun to -just before leaving the elevator- pressing all the buttons of all floors, making the elevator stop at every floor for nothing...

This behavior would get someone banned for life from Anthrocon.

For years I vote for the possibility to deselect a floor you don't need to go to anymore by pushing the button in the elevator again!
(or at least I like to have the override key from the fire department. :P )

Well, this problem could easely been resolved I guess, elevators these days are controlled by microcomputers, shouldn't be hard to add a small program that deselects all selected floors when there is no weight (no passangers) in the elevator. Certainly when all floors are selected in just a few secs and no weight is inside this could be easely detected by the elevator's logic as an obvious act of sabotage.

As long as the elevators don't get as "smart" as in the movie "The Lift" I don't have a problem with that.

I think that such a system would either be (a) very frustrating for normal use, (b) very easy to work around or (c) not so trivial in its implementation.
And, if I have to be absolutely honest, I think that the guests you can usually find at the Maritim (i.e. when Eurofurence is not there) are not too keen on that kind of... "elevator humor", so from the hotel's perspective maybe it isn't really too big an issue :)

EDIT. oh, one thing I forgot.
Do you have € 4,800 in your budget? :)

Do you need a thing like that? They're not really difficult to build...

very big minus - hotel
cold, uncosy, too expensive bars, lobby like hall on railway station

plus - position
choice of other hotels nearby (as I used), other restaurants and shops near

result - atmosphere and socialisation with other was lost - will not come there again
