If you are lucky enough to be staying in a luxury hotel for even just a night, because of a unique offer, a wedding, or an all-expenses paid business trip, you are not going to want to waste the opportunity. The best hotels offer amazing facilities as well as top notch service, and you are going to want to use up all the benefits that you can whilst they are included in your stay.
- Research in advance
Before you arrive at your luxurious accommodation, find out what is on offer. You do not want to be in the position, for example, where you find out after you have already checked out, that there was live entertainment in the evening, and you spent the night in your room watching TV. Look at the hotel website, social media pages, and TripAdvisor business page. What facilities does the hotel offer? What activities do they offer? What is the breakfast like? Find out, and be ready to take on the place, with full enthusiasm!
- Pack the essentials
If you are staying somewhere that has a wide variety of facilities, you are going to want to pack for the activities you want to participate in. If there is a swimming pool, bring a swimsuit that makes you feel good; if there is a spa, bring a quality set of underwear, and if there is a gym bring a set of trainers and workout bags with all your workout gear inside to fully enjoy the equipment and classes available. You also might want to pack some nice evening wear if you are going to do any fine dining in the hotel’s restaurant or if there are any hotel events. ‘A failure to plan is a plan to fail’ is a phrase for a reason.
- Do not be shy
Above all, do not let the standards of the hotel, make you feel anything less than awesome! Many people can go to a nice restaurant or hotel and feel inferior. You should watch out for this, and remember that you are just as worthy as anyone else to be there. For this reason, do not hold back on enjoying yourself and taking full advantage because of low self-esteem or embarrassment. Strut through those corridors like you belong there, go up to that breakfast buffet for seconds or even thirds, if you want to, and if you are not happy with something, speak up! You may find it to be a very uplifting and empowering experience.
So, the moral of the story, enjoy that special treat and take full advantage of the hotel’s luxury facilities. The service and rooms are there for you to have a wonderful time and relax. Before you know it, you will be back at home and doing regular chores again. If you like the escape enough, you can discuss the rates of a return trip with the hotel; perhaps you can find a special deal to take advantage of!
