Don’t we all miss the excitement of staying at a hotel while traveling? This year has been tough, and just the thought of crisp bedsheets and continental breakfasts brings us so much joy! In anticipation of guests returning, hotels are getting pretty creative in order to attract the most travelers and business people and make their stays as easy and comfortable as possible. Let’s look at some of the best and most ingenious solutions at different hotels and let’s hope we can all experience the wonders of good hospitality again soon.
5 Star Service For The Pets Too
Don’t you love when hotels go the extra mile? This woman was planning to travel with her cat. Just to be sure, she asked the hotel she was staying at if that was okay according to their policy, and their response was amazing.
Not only did they allow pets, but they also provided her a litter box, bed, and scratching post for her cat.
How many times have you tried to get your shower temperature just the way you like it?
After a long day, the last thing you want is to be fiddling with the shower handle, and yet we do this all the time. This hotel finally got it right and allows you to dial the exact temperature during your shower.
Can we all just take a moment and appreciate how hilarious this is?
Most hotels will leave ample amounts of clean towels in the bathroom for their guests, but this hotel did something a bit different – they shaped their towels into animals and had them sitting on the bathroom toilet. And the towel is even reading a brochure!
Guests ask for lots of crazy things at hotels, and while some requests are denied, others are accommodated like this one. This woman said she missed out camping this year, so she asked the hotel she was staying at for a tent – in her room!
And believe it or not, the hotel gave her a tent, complete with lights, champagne, and smores. Incredible.
This is by the far the fanciest way to find out what the weather is outside.
Most people just check the weather map on their phone, but this hotel went so far as to install a mirror that tells you if it’s sunny, cloudy, rainy, snowy, or windy. And the best part is that it’s all written in gold!
This one is not so much a solution or request by a hotel guest, but the design is so unique, we had to add it to the list.
This stunning hotel in Singapore dared to design a structure that’s so different from anything else we’ve seen. They added greenery throughout all the balconies, showing a beautiful contrast to the rest of the building.
Isn’t this so adorable? If you ever wanted to pamper your phone, this hotel has you covered. Some outlets are placed very high on the walls of your room, making it difficult for your phone to lean on something, like a table or the floor.
This hotel went above and beyond to solve the problem – it offers a cute bed for your phone when you charge it!
Pillows come in many shapes and sizes, but they also come in different levels of firmness. If you ask your friends or family they’ll all have different answers as to the type of pillows they prefer to sleep on.
That’s why this hotel decided to make it easier for everyone by letting them know which pillows are soft and which are firm.
If you’re confused as to what’s going on in this picture, you’re not alone – we’re also trying to understand why there’s an exit sign on the floor. While we don’t really know why we have a few theories.
It might be there in case of a fire when you’re crawling on the floor, or maybe for the animals that are living in the hotel (like the lizards we saw earlier).
If you’re the kind of person who wonders if your water usage is affecting the environment, this flow meter is perfect for you. Most people don’t think about the number of times they flush the toilet, but this hotel wants you to notice.
When you flush, it gives you the amount of water you used, and if you use too much, a polar bear disappears on the screen.
We’ve never seen a statement more honest than the one written here. While most people would simply have a yes or no policy against dogs, this hotel went on to explain why dogs are encouraged on their property.
This statement is not only accurate, but it’s super funny, especially the last line, “So if your dog can vouch for you, you’re welcome too.”
After a night out on vacation, you go back to your hotel room and take off your makeup before bed. But the towels in the room are usually white, so you wind up getting stains on the towel.
This hotel decided to add a black towel in every room specifically for makeup to avoid staining. There’s only one problem with this solution – you can’t see if the stains are there from the last guest!
How many times did you wake up in your hotel room with the alarm and have to turn the alarm to see the time?
Most classic hotel alarms have the time facing forward, so it’s hard to see the time when you’re on the right or left side of the clock. This hotel, however, fixed the problem by adding faces on either side of the alarm. Genius!
Every hotel should accommodate its guests to a certain extent. This hotel might have had a high number of Muslim guests, so they thought to incorporate an arrow on the ceiling that points towards Mecca.
This way the guests would know which direction to pray towards, and it shows an extra level of hospitality.
Honestly, why should there be just a Bible in hotel rooms? Different guests follow different religions or none at all, so it makes way more sense to put The Constitution and the Declaration Of Independence in the rooms (assuming it’s a hotel in America).
And it’s practical too – don’t do anything at the hotel that doesn’t follow the laws of the country you live in.
When hotels incorporate things from TV shows and movies, they tend to attract more attention. This hotel installed a replica of the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space) time machine from the show, Doctor Who.
So for anyone who’s a fan of the TV show, we found the perfect hotel for you!
Sometimes we wish that hotels would be more accommodating when it comes to their guest’s needs.
In this photo, one guest had an issue with the peephole because he used a wheelchair and the hole was too high up. The hotel acted in the best way and decided to include lower peepholes in all the rooms.
If you were ever wondering what an elevator looks like when all the floors are underground, this photo will help you.
While most hotel elevators go up in numbers, this hotel descends into a cliff, so to be accurate, they labeled all of the floors in negative numbers. It looks weird, but it’s pretty cool to stay in a hotel by a cliff.
After looking at this photo, we’re starting to wonder if the other hotels we’ve been at until now were boring. This hotel clearly didn’t want to be like everyone else, so they installed lights in the hallways that shine diagonally.
The only downfall to this design is when you come with your kids – they probably won’t stop running diagonally through the hallways all night.
How cool would it be if the hotel you stayed at provided a water bottle in the exact shape of the hotel building!
This person who went to visit Bangkok was surprised when she was given a water bottle that was a replica of the hotel building she was staying at for the night. While it’s not necessary, it’s definitely a nice gift.
It’s hard to believe that this bathroom wasn’t originally designed as a pool. Imagine you’re about to shower, and as you step into the bathroom, you’re surrounded by tiles that say “2.5 feet deep” and “no diving.”
We’re going to guess that the person who designed this has a love for swimming pools. Let’s just hope no one actually fills the bathroom with 2.5 feet of water!
