If you regularly travel and stay in hotel rooms then somewhere you'll know what to expect in a hotel. If you have not stayed in a modern hotel room for a while, or are looking for a more luxurious hotel for a change, then sometimes you do not know exactly what sort of thing you want and need.
Here's what you need to think about.
1. You'll want a nice comfortable looking bed and extravagant linen. What about Egyptian cotton sheets in soothing and relaxing colors and a firm but inviting mattress? You'll be able to get a good night's sleep in a nice bed.
2. You'll want satellite TV that you can see from anywhere in the room, so that you can catch up with the news, or watch your favorite program.
3. If you're staying in a hotel room in business, then you'll want wi-fi internet access so that you can carry on with your work without needing to leave your room and going to an internet café. If you're staying for pleasure, wi-fi will be useful so that you can upload your photos to your social networking sites, or check your email or find out about local events and see what else you need to do in the city.
4. You'll definitely need refreshments, and so a selection of hot beverages such as tea and coffee will be most welcome.
5. If you're looking to spend time working, or even if you just want to do your hair before you go out, then you'll make good use of a desk and chair in your room.
6. If you're staying in a hotel for a special event such as a wedding or a birthday, or even just for a business meeting, then you'll want to look your best, so a trouser press and iron will be essential. You'll want an ironing board so that you can iron your clothes properly, and make sure that you look amazing.
7. The bathroom can make or break a hotel room, and so you'll want to make sure your room has a nice clean bathroom, and thick fresh towels.
8. If you're staying longer than a couple of day, you'll want to make sure that there is plenty of storage for your clothes and other items.
9. You'll want to make sure that the hotel you choose is welcoming, looks comfortable and will help you relax.
10. The room décor will help set the mood of the room, and so you'll want to make sure that the colors are right and paintings on the walls look good, and are of high quality.
Now you know what you need in your hotel room, you'll have everything you need, no matter how long you're staying, or the purpose of your stay.
