Hotels That Really Outdid Themselves

One of the best things about traveling is staying in a hotel. There’s something about it that feels so exciting and relaxing. Maybe it’s that you don’t have to do any of the cleaning yourself, or maybe it’s because hotels like to go above and beyond to make you feel at home and comfortable.

These are some hotels that really knocked it out of the park with their neat ideas and customer service.

Isn’t That Sweet?

This guy had been staying in his hotel for quite a while, and before checking out, he got a little treat from the hotel staff thanking him for being so tidy and respectful.

You know when you see those “special instructions” sections when you make a reservation, and you want to fill it out but don’t have the guts? These people did, and the hotel definitely met the challenge of building them an awesome fort.

Everywhere Should Do This

Instead of throwing things out after using them only once, this hotel has offered to let people take the soaps home and even offered a little bag. It’s these little things that will make a big impact on the environment.

This Probably Saved A Lot Of Trouble

Each hotel room in this place has a card that you can keep in your wallet to give to cab drivers in case there is an issue with communicating with one another when you want to get back to your hotel.

Not only do you get soaps and shampoos in cute little bottles at this hotel, but you also get a little rubber duck to keep all your toiletries company while you’re away for the day.

Why Doesn’t Every Hotel Do This?

This hotel has way later checkouts on the weekends so that you don’t have to worry about being up super early if you were out enjoying yourself the night before.

OK, This Is Really Cool

In Germany, there is a hostel that is literally an indoor trailer park. This would be an especially fun place to stay with kids, don’t you think? It’s almost like an indoor theme park.

What An Interesting Choice

A lot of hotels are moving away from keeping the Bible in the bedside table, but replacing it with George Orwell’s 1984 seems like a really bold choice to make.

That’s Really Beautiful

Any time I see something like this at someone’s hotel, I always wonder how long it took someone to make a towel sculpture that beautiful. Maybe it’s part of the training that goes into getting that job.

This Is Such An Adorable Idea

Some people travel for work or like to travel alone, but sometimes that might get a little bit lonely. This hotel has plants in the lobby that you can take up to your room!

This Should Be A Thing In Every House

Tired of having towels that were ruined by makeup that wouldn’t wash out? This place started leaving a black towel specifically for makeup in the bathrooms so that they won’t get stained when guests need to remove their makeup.

A Fun Trip For Everyone

This hotel has a tiny bathroom with a small, child-sized door for kids to have a little bit of privacy, too. Did anyone else looking at this think it was a mirror at first?

Sometimes you want to add a little excitement to your life, so why not put out one of these fun “do not disturb” signs instead of the boring old traditional ones?

In order to help their visitors save on roaming charges, this hotel has a cellphone in every room that has important phone numbers in it and a maps function so you can get around.

Who Doesn’t Love A Little White Noise?

When you’re trying to sleep in a new place, it can be a little bit difficult. That’s why it’s such a good idea to have a white noise machine in each room to help a little bit.

You Never Know What You Might Forget

This hotel has a lending locker that’s full of appliances you would need if you were staying long-term somewhere and forgot something like a blow dryer, or want to make your own coffee.

No More Getting Wet

This should be something that you have at every shower, not just in hotels. Now you can turn the water on and test it without having to get yourself all wet.

People Love To Eat Pizza

Hotel staff were finding pizza boxes where they didn’t belong, so they decided to do something about it. They made a garbage specifically for pizza boxes, which is basically genius.

How Cute Are These?

Just when you thought a breakfast buffet couldn’t get any better, you roll up to see these adorable little bottles of ketchup and hot sauce. That bottle is so cute and tiny, but let’s be real, you’d need many.

No More Craning Your Neck

These alarm clocks have the time on each side of the clock so that you can tell what time it is even when you’re lying in bed. No one likes bending their neck to check the time.
