Here are a few more things I’d do if I owned a hotel. You can read the original list here.
1. Dump the rain style shower heads.
I don’t wash my hair every day, particularly on the morning when I race to the airport. At least offer a hand-held alternative.
2. Gimme coffee.
Ensure that there’s a coffee bar offering quality barista-made espresso beverages and good grab-and-go breakfast options. I recently stayed at the W Victory Lane in Dallas and while complimentary brewed coffee was offered in the lobby, the nearest Starbucks or similar was a ten minute walk away. That’s time I don’t often have.
And feel free to stop putting the little coffee maker in the room. I’m not ever using it.
3. Give a girl a place to put her leg.
More and more hotels are doing away with tubs and offering only stall showers. That’s fine, but include a bench or ledge where I can prop my leg while shaving, as well as put my shampoo and conditioner.
4. Don’t assume everyone loves down pillows and featherbeds.
5. Offer slippers.
The NH hotel chain offers guests a pair of sealed, new slippers to use in-room. I always travel with flip-flops, striving never to step barefoot on a hotel carpet, but I love the fresh slippers when I stay at NH Guadalajara.
