Why do we have canned pop instead of a soda fountain?

Unfortunately, only the Pepsi company still has the old fashioned soda fountains for rent, and they have only two for the entire state of Iowa. The newer fountains require us to run a water line, which the hotel does not allow, and which is really not possible with the current setup anyway. One advantage of canned pop is that there can be more of a selection of types of soda pop. We currently have Coke, Diet Coke, Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, Orange Crush, and Root Beer. Those who remember the fountain days when we had only Dr. Pepper and Diet Rite products may judge for themselves if this is better. It turns out to also be less expensive.

We keep the canned pop cold on ice in the bathtub and in the purple tub at the front of the ConSuite. For this reason, occasionally you may need to reach through ice or ice water to get your beverage. Non-chilled soda is available upon request. The hotel has water stations everywhere, so we do not usually have bottled water.
