A nicer room can make your trip a lot better and you can often get one by just asking. Travel+Leisure recommends checking in later in the day to increase your odds, when the hotel staff have a better idea of their room inventory for the night.
The unfamiliar environment of a hotel room makes it easy to misplace important stuff like your keys, wallet or phone. Keep it all organised by laying a hand towel on a convenient surface and make a habit of placing all important items in this one spot.
Sometimes you want to stay at a certain hotel only to find out it is completely booked. Wendy Parrin at Conde Nast Traveller recommends finding out the hotel’s cancellation policy and snagging a room that someone else lets go.
For many of us, decent Wi-Fi ranks right up there with location and price when it comes to choosing a hotel. Hotel WiFi Test makes it easy to choose a hotel with quality, fast wireless internet access for guests.
