Strange News: Calling Front Desk for a Ferret Tops List of Weird Hotel Requests

Frequent hotel guests are used to hearing concierges say something along the lines of, "anything we can do to make your stay better, don't hesitate to ask," but according to a new survey, some guests take that too literally. Employees at British Best Western hotels were given a list of the strangest guest requests, and a patron who asked for a ferret so he wouldn't attend a party alone topped the list.

Other notable mentions included, "a room with a sea view" -- some 107 miles from the nearest shoreline -- an extra bed for a doll, and a ghost to keep the guest company, according to the U.K. website Metro.
