A few travel tips for a good night’s sleep
Getting a good, refreshing night’s sleep is very important for those who travel a lot. It may not seem like a big thing, but business people who are always traveling often complain that they can’t get enough sleep because of their neighbors or because of the hotel staff. Here are some tips on how to make sure you get a chance to get a good night’s sleep so you’ll be fully refreshed for that morning meeting!
The first important tip for traveling is choosing the right hotel room. Make sure your room is not located near an elevator or an ice machine. It may not seem like a big deal, but feeling the elevator vibrate all night long won’t help you sleep after a long day of travel. Neither of them will help you sleep to the sound of the hotel ice machine being used by all the other people on your floor. And most importantly, always ask at the hotel reception if your room is located near the disco club. Make sure to put at least 3 floors between your sleep and the hotel disco!
Another travel tip is to check if your hotel room has a do not disturb sign. If not, ask the front desk to give you one, or even make one yourself. Otherwise, the hotel cleaning staff will wake you up for the usual towel-changing process. And this is very annoying, especially when you are about to start another long day of travel.
If a party is happening around the corner, don’t even bother complaining to the hotel reception staff. All they can do is send hotel security to ask the party animals to keep it down. So you need to ask the front desk staff to provide you another room. I insist there are no more rooms. Do the same if there are two trainings around for the World Sex Olympics. And early in the morning, before leaving the hotel, you can take revenge by calling the noisy room. They will most likely be asleep!
And a final travel tip: always pack a pair of earplugs when sleeping at night in hotels. They will keep you from hearing all the annoying noises any hotels would deal with.
Enjoy a good night’s sleep on your travels!
