GENERAL HOTEL HACKS

Need some mood music, or perhaps you just want some tunes in the background, as you get ready to hang out by the pool or go sightseeing. Either way, use a hotel coffee mug to create a makeshift speaker. Just drop your phone inside and you’re good to go.
Stay hydrated – Fill Up At The Gym
Does your hotel gym offer free water from a water dispenser? Make sure you fill up your water bottle there before you leave. You’ll save a couple of bucks, by not having to purchase bottled water at your next pit stop.
Rule Your Room – Room Temperature
Many new hotels and resorts require you to keep your key card in a slot to switch the power on inside your room. To keep the lights or A/C on while you’re out and about, just slip any card in the slot to ensure a nice cool room upon your return.
TV Choice – Stream Your Favourite Shows On Hotel TV
“Can’t wait to see your favorite shows? You can stream your downloaded shows directly to the hotel TV. If you don’t already own a Chromecast (or similar device), it might be worth it just for this — as long as the hotel room has Wi-Fi and the TV has an HDMI input, you can easily stream shows from your phone, tablet, or laptop. No more global TV surfing.
