Having an overnight stay in a hotel is one of the best feelings ever because you don’t only get to have some time off work or school but you also get to experience living like a king or queen for a day. Being in a hotel is fun and exciting. There’s just some sense of anticipation when you are visiting a hotel. When you visit a hotel, you tend to make use of everything they have so that you will be able to maximize everything that you paid for. That means using the hotel gym, using the conference or function rooms, eating a lot in the buffet area, using the swimming pool and enjoying your stay in the hotel room. But not a lot of people know that you can also bring some stuff home with you. Yes, you read that right.
If you wanna know more, see the list below:
You don’t have a bottled water with you? Worry no more! Hotels usually leave mineral water bottles inside your room. Other hotels only offer 2-3 bottles but others usually put a dozen in your room for free. Yes, if in case you were not able to drink them all, you can take home the ones left. This is probably one of the great hotel hacks ever!
Toiletries are definitely 100% free. They are one of the most efficient things we need in order to clean and groom ourselves. Here are the things that you may bring home with you: conditioner, moisturizer, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, mouthwash, shaving cream, deodorant and many more. There’s just a lot of them and they are included in what you paid for. This is one of the top travel perks you could take advantage of!
By office things, we mean the stuff that are being used in the office like notepads, ballpens, sticker pads and many more. You can actually find these things inside your hotel room and you can take them home for free. If you ran out of office stuff then worry no more as the hotel you booked is there to save you.
Packets of beverages
To the coffee and tea lovers out there, you will surely love this! If you are aiming for having a stock of beverage packets then you’re in for a treat. Hotels have beverage packets inside their room so you can take them home if you ever decide not to drink them. Take advantage of this as you may find a very rare type of coffee or tea pack that you will surely love.
Plastic bags, shower caps and many more. You can actually take disposables from your hotel room to your home room. They are free and you won’t be charged so don’t be scared as they are part of the charges you already paid. These disposables will surely help you a lot when you get home so better also take advantage of this!
After everything you’ve read, you’re probably now more excited to have a staycation! That’s a good thing, but always remember that staying in a hotel is more than getting the freebies, it’s more about bonding with your family and friends, more about experiencing life in a different perspective.
