How to Plan Your Perfect Trip

Staying in a Hotel Suite: Top Tips

by Kirk Morris

When you stay in a hotel suite, there are a few things that you can do to make sure that your experience is as enjoyable as possible. Here are a few tips:

Ask for housekeeping services

If you need towels or sheets changed or want the room cleaned, don't be afraid to ask the staff for assistance. Housekeeping services are often available free of charge at hotels, and the team will be happy to help you with whatever you need.

Book a room with a view

Many hotel suites offer a spectacular view of the surrounding area. If you're staying at a hotel with a particularly good view, make sure to ask for a room with a view when you book your stay. Then, when there, remember to take the time to step outside onto the balcony so you can enjoy it. 

Make use of the concierge service

A hotel suite typically comes with access to the guest services desk or concierge service, which can provide all types of helpful information such as sight-seeing suggestions and restaurant recommendations. Use this service to your advantage; they'll be more than happy to help.

Ask for additional key cards

When checking in, ask for an extra key card if necessary. For example, if two people stay in a hotel suite, both may want access to the room throughout the day and night, even if one person has checked out but has yet to return home.

Don't leave a mess

It is advisable that when you check out, you follow any instructions. While you won't be expected to leave the room in a perfectly clean condition, there may be some advice you should follow. For example, many hotels ask guests to place dirty linens in a bag ready to be collected and put used towels in the shower.

Put out the "Do Not Disturb" sign

Make use of "Do Not Disturb" signs when appropriate. For example, if you want privacy or wish to sleep in late, consider hanging a "Do Not Disturb" sign on your door to let staff know not to knock on your door.

Don't spend too much time inside

Although hotel suites are fantastic spaces to rest and relax, don't spend too much time in the hotel suite if you are visiting a large city for an extended period. Many major cities have many things to do and see, so plan ahead and set some money aside for activities outside of the hotel suite.
