Travel Security - Hotel Amenities

More tips for staying safe at a hotel

Groveland HotelGroveland HotelSafety concerns at a hotel don't stop at the door to your room. Remember our advice to never let the desk clerk announce your room number in a voice that anyone else can hear? Similar practices can keep you free from trouble when using the hotel facilities.

When you visit a hotel restaurant, lounge or (if it's notKathleen AmecheKathleen Ameche complimentary) health club, you'll want to charge the cost to your room. When you do, put your initials and room number on the check and hand it directly back to the server.

Don't leave any personal information on a table or a counter. Leaving your information unattended could make you vulnerable to predators. No one wants an unexpected visitor during the night, especially a woman traveling alone.

Take simple precautions, stay alert and vigilant and you'll remain in control of your own safety.

  • On Cuba Travel ~ 10 Things You Need to Know Before You Go, Gordon Mitchell said "Over the last few years The $25 departure tax has been included in your airfare. Make sure you convert your cash at the airport so you can buy a cold beer on the bus on your way to the resort. They will take canadian money but not loonies and toonies. "

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
