Want A Seamless Hotel Experience? Consider Bringing A Few Things Of Your Own


Staying at a hotel is supposed to be a positive experience, regardless of whether you are there on vacation or a business trip. If you do not frequently stay at hotels, you might not know exactly what you need to do to ensure a smooth trip. While hotels will provide you with the essentials such as shampoo, conditioner, body soap, hand soap, and a bed to sleep on, all these things will have their own qualities. It is worth packing a little extra with a few specific items in mind to guarantee an enjoyable stay.

Night Light

Many hotels have a variety of lights that you can turn on in guest rooms. The bathroom, nightstand, and ceiling may all come with lights to turn on, but this does not necessarily give you light for sleeping. It may be too much to try to sleep with the bathroom light turned on and the door partially closed. So, you will find an easy solution in taking a night light along that you can plug in anywhere around the guest room. This is especially helpful if your spouse or children will be sleeping in the same room because you will not have to turn on one of the bright lights to get around the room without tripping over things.


Although the shampoo in the hotel may be of high quality, you will not know how it meshes with your hair. If you have had problems with your hair in the past and ended up finding a shampoo that works well, you should take a small bottle along so that you do not have to take chances with the shampoo. This also applies to conditioner and all it takes is a small amount of space to bring both items along. You may want to try out the hotel shampoo and if it does not work out, you can always use your own shampoo.


Everyone has their own sleeping preferences. If you love a soft pillow, you might end up staying in a hotel and find that they have firm pillows, which is perfect for those with that preference. To avoid having trouble falling asleep at night, you should throw your own pillow into the car before leaving. If you happen to forget, you can call the front desk to see if they have a different pillow for you to try sleeping on.

While hotels have most of what you need, you should not hesitate to bring a few items of your own.
