What You Need to Know About Travel Etiquette

Last updated 6 years ago

From keeping your room tidy for the cleaning staff to treating receptionists, workers, and other guests with kindness, there are many parts to practicing proper travel etiquette. Follow these tips to make your next stay in an Emory hotel both pleasant and memorable.

Room: Avoid making the hotel housekeeper’s job unnecessarily difficult by simply keeping your room nice and tidy. This includes returning towels to the towel rack or placing them to indicate you would like fresh ones, keeping blankets on the bed instead of strewn across the floor, and disposing of food and other disposable items in wastebaskets. Lastly, be sure to keep your noise at a reasonable volume at night to accommodate other guests.

Pool: Hotels offer pools so that you can truly relax and enjoy some recreation. However, it’s important not to act rambunctious by the pool. Take cell phone conversations away from the pool area, or at least conduct them at a reasonably low volume, and refrain from leaving your pool towels draped over your lounge chair if you don’t plan to return. Like at all other pools, don’t run near the pool or splash excessively. Courteousness and respect for other people at the pool will allow everyone to have as much fun as you are.

Staff: The staff at your hotel works tirelessly behind the scenes to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. From preparing complimentary breakfast to offering fresh-baked cookies and coffee, they make your happiness and comfort their priority. Treat them with the same respect they treat you with by asking nicely for whatever it is you need, thanking them when the opportunity presents itself, tipping when you feel someone went above and beyond, and keeping your room clean and tidy.
