Ways to make the most out of your hotel stay


One of my favorite things about traveling is hotels! There is something about not having to make my bed for in the morning before you leave and then find it beautifully made when you come back. But there are so many things to enjoy in a hotel room that you might not have realised! Here are some of my tips and warning when you are staying in such holiday accommodation.

  • The biggest tip is to find absolutely everything about where you are staying! Some hotels have private lounges where you can get free cocktails at happy hour. But you need to enquire about this and be very nosey. I would also suggest searching for fun facts about your hotel before you leave for holiday as this will save you lots of time and embarrassment demanding free drinks at reception! 
  • Make use of all the services available. Having your room cleaned is definitely the biggest perk you can ever get but you can get more! You must definitely know that you can request a wake-up call almost anywhere. I have heard that some hotels offer delivery of your favourite newspaper to your day every morning.  
  • Use the tiny shampoos and eat the chocolates. I always like to get as much free stuff as I can just because it is fun.  I sometimes try to communicate to the housekeepers myself my leaving nice thank you notes or asking nicely for more chocolates. I have asked for a surprise when I come back home and I found a towel folded in the shape of a dog. That made my day.  

There are so many more ways you can have the most fun without even leaving your room. However, it all depends on your hotel so be inquisitive and befriend as many staff members as possible to get your way!
