Well, it might surprise you to learn that the world’s hotels are full of secrets. In fact, there are plenty of things that even the world’s most luxurious hotels and hotel chains might not want you to know… And it’s exactly those secrets that we’re going to expose.
Below, we’re going to share 20 things that hotels don’t want you to know. What kinds of things are we talking about? Well, ask yourself this: Do you know what the most germ-infested thing in any hotel room is? Do you know what the best days to book are if you’re looking for a deal? Do you know why it’s not always wise to book a hotel through a discount booking website?
If you’re not hip to the answers of any of the above questions, then we’re about to set you straight. The following 20 secrets about hotels are things that you should know and that just might help you to make your next booking when you take that vacation to which you’ve so been looking forward…
1. No Vacancy? Maybe Not…
Just because it says there’s no vacancy, it may not actually be true. The only way to find out for certain is to call…
2. Skip the 800 Number
When you do the above, don’t use an 800 number that goes to a central booking office. Instead, call the hotel directly.
3. Hotel Deaths are Common
If you’ve stayed in enough hotel rooms in your life, the odds are incredibly high that you’ve stayed where someone else died.
4. Famous Deaths Increase Demand
When someone famous dies in a hotel room, demand for that room can skyrocket. For example, the Beverly Hilton had to retire the room that Whitney Houston died in due to the demand.
5. Early Sunday
If you’re looking to get a nice room for a good price, the best time to book is for a Sunday early on in any month.
