Getting the Most out of a Hotel Room

When it comes to staying in a hotel room, how you use it often depends on how long you are
staying and the purpose of your travel. If you are just visiting for a night as a stopover while traveling,
you probably use the minimum of its facilities and live out of your bag. If you are on a family holiday,
you might try to use it to its full potential and entirely take it over with your possessions. If you are
traveling on business and know that you are going to be away from your family for an extended
period, you may even take along home comforts and try to give your hotel room a more personal feel.
But, however you are using your room, you might not be getting the most out of it.


Most modern hotel rooms are filled with small details and finishing touches that most of its guests
never even notice, let alone use. Let’s take a look at some ways to get more out of your hotel room,
no matter how long you are in it. You’re paying for it after all!


Get the Best Booking Deal


In years gone by, the only way to book a hotel room was at the desk or over the phone. Now, you can
book online using price comparison sites to get the best deals. But, you’re not always getting the best
deal, as it’s not just the prices that can vary. Book at the darling harbour hotel in Sydney directly
online, and you’ll get a free mini bar and other extras that you don’t get when you use other providers.
The best way to get more from your hotel room is with the best deal.


Unpack


Hotel rooms often make us feel stressed out and unsettled. This is usually because we don’t unpack.
This leaves you looking around for what you need in a rush every morning. When you arrive,
take an hour or so to unpack and put everything where you want it. Then, take a look at any free
toiletries and supplies in your room. Think about what you will use and when to get the most
out of your goodies, and remember, you can take home what you don’t need.


Ask for Help


If there’s anything that you’ve forgotten or need that your room doesn’t provide, a hair dryer or iron,
for example, ring down to the front desk and ask for it. Hotel staff are keen to please and usually
happy to get you what you need.


Be Kind


They say that kindness is free. But, it’s more than that. It’s almost a currency of its own.
If you are kind and polite to the hotel staff, they will treat you with more respect and friendliness in
return. They’ll happily go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.


Stream Your Favorite Shows

Hotel TV packages aren’t fantastic. Especially if you are traveling to a foreign country. But, you’re not stuck with them. Most TVs now have HDMI ports, and most hotels have Wifi. Take your laptop and a cable and hook them up. You’ll be able to use your Netflix account to watch your favorite shows wherever you are.
