I love hotel do-not-disturb (DND) signs. I especially like funky, unique, one of a kind, one's that hang over the door handle, ones that have DND on one side, and please make up room on the other side. I have seen them made out of plastic, paper, wood, even leather (Fairmont hotel in San Francisco, and Viking Hotel in Newport Rhode Island.) I miss hotel maid service, one of the highlights of a hotel stay for me, is the room freshened and fresh towels each day. One of my personal splurges at home, is a fresh bath towel each time I shower.
I have kept a log of hotel stays since 2005. 2020 was the fewest nights since I started keeping track, only 18 nights (if we hadn't been gone the first two weeks in March, it would be 4 nights.) My average is 39 nights a year. Looking back through the book there are a few notes about particularly spectacular rooms, only a couple of places marked NEVER AGAIN. My grandmother kept a daily diary for decades, when they traveled she made notes about hotels, where to stay again, where to never stay. If those books still exist, I would love to get my hands on them. I should reach out to my cousin again.
What is your favorite part of staying in a hotel?
