Geneva Hospitality’s Tips to Make Your Hotel Experience go as Smooth as Possible

1. Do your research. The more you know about what a hotel offers and surrounding amenities, the easier it will be to find the hotel that is right for you.

2. If booking your hotel online, be sure to have a copy of your confirmation and receipt. A number of things can go wrong when booking a hotel online, but having these things can come in handy if there is a mishap.

3. If you have any special requests you need met, let the hotel know ahead of time. That way they will have a better chance of being able to meet them.

4. If you are traveling for business and will be working from your room, ask for a room that is away from the more populated areas such as the lobby, pool, or dining area.

5. When checking into your hotel, ask about any additional fees you should expect when you check out such as hotel fees, housekeeping fees, etc. That way you won’t be surprised when your bill comes.

6. Upon arriving in your room, you should become familiar with the safety precautions in case of an emergency, including locating the nearest elevators, stairwells, and exits.

7. If traveling with children, be sure to accompany them at all times in the hotel’s public areas. With the size of resorts growing, it’s easy for children to become lost and unable to find their way back to their room.

8. Be friendly to the hotel staff. They often know the most about the area and can give suggestions and answer questions you may have about restaurants, shopping, activities, etc.
