Spend an hour + in the shower. That endless hot water is magic.
Call Room service.
At home my wife would not be impressed if I called her phone and asked her to bring me a burger in bed.
Inspect the sheets for bugs before using them.
Clean up for the maid….since I don’t have one at home. Make sure there’s no trash left out on the desk/night stands, bathroom floor. I gather all the used rags, towels, bath mat into one pile by the door. I’m adamant about making sure I do not leave any room I stay in trashed out. It’s the maid’s job to do her job, not to clean up after grown a*s mfers who deliberately left a disrespectful a*s mess.
Yank all the sheets out from being tucked under the bed.
Look for hidden cameras
Put a Do Not Disturb sign on the door. Although, maybe I should do that at home too.
Bring a pop up pack of Clorox wipes and wipe down every surface I might touch.
Wear flip flops if I take my shoes off
Stand naked in the window and look down at whatever city I’m in lol
Living out of a suitcase
I never wear a robe normally. When I stay in hotels, I’m not sure what it is, but I love to clean myself up and wear one of those robes provided.
Just makes me feel extra relaxed for some reason.
check bibles for money
Watch border security
If the bathroom setup allows (no light sources) I put a towel at the bottom of the door (to block any light creeping in) Familiarize yourself where everything is (towel, lights when you need it) and take a shower in complete blackout conditions.
It’s almost like a sensory deprivation tank
Set the thermostat to either frosty or balmy.
Eat in bed aha
Toss wet towels in the corner of the bathroom.
Complain when the sheets are dirty
I travel a lot for work. Whenever I do I always check in as early as possible, hang the DND tag on the door, set the thermostat (in summer 68°, in winter 78°), then head to the office. At the end of the day I’ll grab a bottle of wine on my way back, strip as soon as I get to my room, and lay around naked all night playing video games and drinking my wine. I also have a tendency to stay up ridiculously late sometimes and end up running on an hour or two of sleep the next day.
In my jams and best socks.
Check if the hallway is clear and there’s nobody around or could be around.
Calmly walk to the end of said hallway…then I BOOK IT DOWN THAT B***H as fast as I can! I’m talm bout FLYING!
You can’t bottle that type of joy.
The first thing I do when I walk into a hotel room is jump and belly flop onto the bed. I’d never do that on my own bed
Watch cable TV.
I don’t care to pay for it at home so it’s new and exciting to me.
Pay $15 for a beer.
