The Traveler's Guide to Hotel Living

Last updated 5 years ago

Though visiting a hotel is a special treat for some people, frequent travelers often spend more nights sleeping at hotels than in their own beds. The trick to living out of hotels during long trips is preparation and organization. Making a hotel feel as much like home as possible will make your stay a lot easier. Here are some ways you can personalize your long-term hotel stay:

Plan Your Dining

Many hotels offer complimentary continental breakfasts. At The University Inn at Emory, we’re pleased to offer a deluxe continental breakfast to our guests every day. Although it’s great to indulge in treats when you’re on vacation, you should approach this breakfast as you would a meal at home. Select healthy options to start your day out right. For your other meals, limit your time in restaurants by making use of the mini-fridges and microwaves found in many hotel rooms. You’ll save money and feel much healthier.

Pack Only What You Need

Before your trip, find out what toiletries and amenities your hotel destination offers and pack accordingly. Leaving the hair dryer and shampoo bottles at home and using the hotel’s equipment can free up space in your bag for items that will make your stay more enjoyable, like portable DVD players and books.

Exercise Outdoors

Many hotels offer indoor fitness centers, which are excellent for staying active in poor weather. However, you should get outside for some physical activity whenever you can. A walk or jog around your home away from home is a great way to learn the area and get some fresh air. The trails surrounding beautiful Emory University are wonderful for exercise. The University Inn at Emory also offers free access to a pool and the Emory University workout facilities.

The University Inn at Emory is a comfortable destination for all travelers. Our Atlanta hotel offers easy access to all the city’s attractions, and our well-equipped rooms provide all the creature comforts you need. Make a reservation at our hotel by calling (404) 465-3549.
