Be sure to keep your valuables and electronics secure by locking them in your hotel room’s safe. You can use it to store your tablet and other expensive items to keep them secure.

Once you get to your hotel, do not unpack until you check the room. Your room should definitely be neat and should not have any odd smells, suspicious stains or mildew. Check the shower, toilet and sink to ensure they work properly. Is the room adequately stocked with towels and linens? If you have any questions or notice any problems with the room, immediately call the front desk and report them so that they may be handled. You may also asked to be transferred to a new room if the problem is serious, such as mold or mildew.

Don’t make assumptions about pet policies of hotels. You should call ahead to double check, even if it was stated on the website that this is a pet friendly hotel. Also, speak to them about what they’re meaning by pet-friendly because they may not allow specific breeds or certain sizes of pets.

There are three things to do ahead of time if you want to bring your pet to a hotel with you. Ascertain that your hotel is really pet friendly. Gather plastic grocery bags so you are able to clean up any pet messes. If you can arrange a corner room, there will be less likelihood of your pet disturbing other guests.

If you want to keep up your running regimen on the road, make sure that your packing list includes lots of running clothes and a GPS watch. Go for a jog every morning. Whether you are running on roads or city streets, you will gain more knowledge about the city you are visiting while you run.

If you want to work on saving the environment, a green vacation is something to look into. Many hotels offer environmentally friendly standards today. Green certification is something some of the newly built hotels are quite proud of promoting. Older hotels may choose to take “green” standards seriously, which is a great thing. Talk to your travel agent about what you want to do and let them seek out a few appropriate hotels.
