Travelers: Hotel Provided Items
I don't pack a hair dryer when traveling. It's not because I want my hair to look like I just crawled out of bed, either. I check with the hotel, B & B, or apartment website of the place where we will be staying. Most often hair dryers are provided.
It seems hotels are now providing a wide range of items for travelers. Kimpton provides zebra print ounge socks, toothpaste, and mouthwash at its properties. Hyatt is following suit.
Forgot your charger? Did you know that mobile phone chargers were the number one most left behind item in hotel rooms? Some travelers check the desk drawer first before calling the front desk to see if they have loaners.
Need a portable place for your child to sleep? Many hotels offer free kid's items from bathtub toys to small cribs.
Bottom line...check with your hotel or B & B before you go to the store to pick up what you forgot. Chances are, the front desk staff will have what you need.
And, check before you leave home to see what you don't need to pack. Might as well save some room in your luggage.
