It's wonderful to return home to a clean home. It was an amazing feeling to return home to a clean house after a cleaning job in my early professional years.
It is wonderful to be able to return to your hotel room every day and enjoy the luxury of staying in a hotel. This is at least in areas where housekeeping was provided. This was a feature that vanished in most hotels after the pandemic. Big chains are trying to cut labor costs and eliminate it completely (Hilton, for example, would prefer it to be available on request at full-service hotels).
Recently, I checked into a hotel and was informed that there was no housekeeping during my stay. They only cleaned rooms for guests. I was given the option to choose housekeeping as an elite member through the Hyatt app, but the front desk informed me that this is not possible.
Ask them for more towels if you have a need. Since long, hotels have tried to encourage guests to reuse towels. They now have a way to save laundry costs that is almost foolproof.
I wanted to know what to do with the trash in my bedroom. Many rooms only have small trash cans. I often bring food back into my room. After I'm done, I don't want to smell it. They said to just put the trash in the hallway.
This is a look into the future of housekeeping, as seen from TownePlace Suites Outer Banks Kill Devil Hills.
The best thing about a Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, Hyatt, or IHG property is their hotel service. Marriott's CEO wants guests feel sympathy for the REITs or trusts that run their hotels. They pay higher rates and demand less to make owners incur fewer expenses. This includes removing the clocks from rooms and offering a cheaper breakfast for guests who have it included.
Many guests will be able to show their support by booking elsewhere and not requesting services at these hotels.
