How to get hotel rooms cold

My friend David sent me an email today about how to bypass the temperature controls on a hotel thermostat, which seems pretty useful:

The “VIP override” procedure I was able to get out of the maintenance personnel is as follows. I recall it was for an Inncom thermostat, it did work.

– While holding down “display”
– Press “off”, then
– Press “Up” arrow
– Release “display” button

This enters the VIP mode which turns off the motion sensor, and allows a lower range of the thermostat so you can get the room really cold.

  1. If true, this is an awesome tip! I always love to have the fan going all night, and the temp super low (as I’m all bundled up under the covers). I like the white noise of the fan, and I hate it when it stops.
