A lot of hotel rooms have a hard time keeping guests happy.

Some are simply a mess of uncomfortable seating and lack of ventilation.

But with this in mind, here are 5 simple tips to make sure your room is as comfortable as possible when you’re staying in one of these luxury hotels.


Make sure your bed is comfortable and well ventilated The first step in keeping your hotel room as pleasant and air-tight as possible is to ensure that your bed has the right ventilation.

This is especially important for those who are staying in a hotel with a big pool and other outdoor activities.

“The best way to keep your room comfortable is to make the mattress look as good as possible,” says Ryan Johnson, a hotelier and author of “How to Get the Best Night’s Sleep in the World.”

“Make sure the mattress is soft and not too firm, and if it’s a little flimsy, just get rid of it.”


Keep the room clean and organized If you are staying with an individual, consider arranging a hotel cleaning service.

“A good hotel cleaner is someone who will come in, clean the room, and return the next day,” Johnson says.

If you have a large group, you can try a hotel cleanse service, too.


Keep your room air-conditioned If you’re not staying in the same room with a guest, you may be tempted to try air-con for extra comfort, but the best way is to keep the room air conditioned, Johnson adds.


Use your own bed If you aren’t sure what to buy, use the bed that you already have, as long as it’s not one that’s been refinished or damaged.

Johnson suggests that you keep your bed as “clean as possible, but not as dirty.”


Avoid over-furniture There are many things you can do to help prevent a room from becoming a mess and having guests struggle to sleep, says Johnson.

For example, avoid using too many bedding items and make sure you choose the right one for the room.

If your room isn’t well-ventilated, you should be careful about using the bathroom.

And don’t overdo it with the amenities or décor.

To stay safe, make sure that the amenities in your room are appropriate and that your guest doesn’t feel that their room is dirty.

If they do, that’s fine.

Just be aware of how messy your room will become once guests move on to other rooms.
