Safety First - Advice to make your hotel stay more




Contributed By Cindi B

Staying safely at a hotel is our first concern while vacationing outdoors. While staying at a hotel make sure that you protect yourself from falling an easy prey to the petty thieves eying on you. When you are researching on your destination, make sure to check out some good guide books and hotel review sites to find recent comments on hotels that you would like to book for your next trip. Also play close attention to suggestions from your family members and friends.

Moreover, look for hotels that lie in a crime free zone, having well lit parking lots and ideally that are near to the city center. While booking always avoid a room on the ground floor or any other room that is easily accessible from the outside of the building. When you arrive at your hotel, look for the parking near the main entrance and preferably in the area that has more light. If you are getting inside or moving out at night you don't have to walk much and you are at the least risk of being attacked if you are in a lit up area where the passers by can see you.

While checking- in request for keys that do not the room numbers printed on them, in case the you get keys with number, do not allow the desk attendant to say the room number aloud in front of any stranger. Before leaving for your room, ask someone from the hotel staff to carry your luggage and tell him to check your room thoroughly. If the room is not acceptable, he can help you to move to another room. Lock all the luggage that you leave unattended in the hotel room and use the hotel safe to store keys, wallet, credit cards and other valuable belongings.

While resting inside, use all locks and chains on the doors as well as windows to make sure you are safe. Never open doors to strangers and look out from the peephole to before opening the door. If are not able to recognize the person and in case there is no peephole, call front desk for their help. It's also important to locate the fire escape route and two nearest exit to your room in case the primary is blocked.

The most important part of your vacation is sightseeing, before leaving for outdoors, double-check the door lock and leave on your TV or Radio, it always make the passerby feel like someone is at home. Also hang your Do Not Disturb door tag that will make it appear to be inhabited. While returning at night, if you feel that someone with you in the elevators is following you, push the button to a floor that has a restaurant or fitness center and depart there.

Finally, at the end of the hotel stay, check out the discount hotels and discount vacation packages online. Cindy finds great pleasures in visiting new places and learning about them.
