5 More Reasons Why Hotels Are Better Than Your Everyday Existence
Hotels, How Do We Love Thee? Help Us Count the Ways
This recent story on CNN was a bit like preaching to choir for us. Of course hotels are way better than our apartments/homes/friends' couches. If they weren't, we wouldn't be staying in them.
While we agreed with the author's list of things she loves about hotels, we've got even more to add. Here are 5 more reasons why we love hotels better than our everyday existence. Hopefully, this list will get your mind off this one.
· 1. Design. We can't afford fancy artwork and we swore we wouldn't buy new couches until our toddlers grow up and stop spilling milk on them. But in hotels, we can admire all kinds of interesting art and design from the lobby to the guestroom to the restaurant and bar. And it only costs us a couple hundred bucks versus a couple thousand.
· 2. Spas. If there's a spa on site at a hotel, it's going to be hard for us to say no. We'll try our best not to walk around the lobby with our robe on though.
· 3. Fast Internet. It doesn't happen often but a few times this year we have stayed at hotels with crazy fast internet speeds. So we can catch up on "Breaking Bad" while emailing and uploading photos without frustration or guilt.
· 4. Turndown Service. God, we love turndown service, especially the kind that places chocolates and water bottles on the nightstands, lays slippers by the bed, draws the blackout shades and has some soft music playing from the TV.
·: 5. Specialty Cocktails. It can be hard for us to breakaway from our usual glass of white wine or margarita but when a hotel bar puts a specialty cocktail in front of us, we can't resist. We especially love the themed ones to go along with the season, the holidays, and even award seasons. Plus, the hotels are always giving out their recipes so we can make them at home.
