Adjust the Air Con It's always too hot. Or too cold. And the controls are always confusing so this will take at least 30 minutes to get just right.
Inspect the Bed White duvets seem more comforting and easier to check for bed bugs than comforters with busy prints, which usually will get tossed in a corner along with the dozens of throw pillows.
Sanitize the Remote and the Phone We already told you about the poopy remote controls. We're wiping them down, along with the telephone because chances are, we're ordering room service or a back-up wake up call.
Monitor the Minibar If we're traveling with children or friends who may not get that most minibars are NOT free, we're taking inventory of what's what in case a can of Coke goes missing, especially in the sensor-equipped fridges. Or, if we see something completely awesome, we might splurge on it.
Check for Cameras We just had to add this to our list, thanks to this story about a peeping Omni Hotel employee. Our level of paranoia was about a 7, and now it's jumped to an unsettling 9. It's going to take a while for us to calm down on this category, though we're glad we're not as bad as Lady Gaga, who has been accused of having some pretty strange rituals herself!
So tell us, what are your hotel room rituals? Let us know, in the comments below!
