Over the years this list has been continously updated and modified otherwise one falls behind so one must keep on their toes and stay in tune and listen if we want to continue to be brilliant – I like this list 2014
1. Free Wi-Fi. A strong signal and fast connection would be welcome too, including on the exercise bikes and by the pool and even on the beach
2. No hidden add-on fees—and by that I mean no «resort fee,» parking fee, gym fee, mini-bar re-stocking fee, early check-out fee, etc. – Bad profit !
3. An alarm clock that doesn’t wake me up at 5 a.m. because that’s the hour that the previous guest set it for. Failing that, an alarm clock that I can quickly figure out how to turn off (rather than merely re-set to snooze) in the pitch dark at 5 a.m.
4. An in-room lighting system that doesn’t take a degree in engineering to operate.
5. I don’t need 17 pillows on my bed. It would be nice if one pillow—just one—were the correct thickness.
6. A power strip at desk level so I don’t have to crawl beneath the desk, with enough outlets that I don’t have to recharge my smartphone at the bathroom sink.
7. Outlets on the nightstand in case I want to use my laptop in bed or use my iPhone as my alarm clock (thus saving the next guest from 5 a.m. misery).
8. A window I can actually open, for a little fresh air once in a while.
9. A mini-bar with healthy snacks at street price. Some hotels are event offering Free mini-bars! Good profit long run!
10. A view that’s as advertised. «Ocean view» should not mean having to stand on the radiator and crane my neck just to glimpse the water.
11. In the bathroom, good lighting by the mirror, as well as a dim setting for the middle of the night.
12. Soft delicate toilet paper
13. A shower with strong water pressure, a shower head high enough that I needn’t crouch, and a curtain that prevents the bathroom floor from flooding.
14. More hooks for hanging towels or clothing on. Because why would my husband be any neater in a hotel room than he is at home?
15. In addition to the typical toiletries: earplugs—in case of noisy neighbors
16. A climate-control system that doesn’t sound like a freight train running past the room.
17. A key card that does not get mysteriously deactivated (whether through proximity to my cell phone or some misunderstanding about my check-out time), forcing me to trek all the way back to the front desk.
18. An in-room safe that’s actually large enough for my most valuable possession: my laptop.
19. Have the best coffee in town , freshly squeezed juice, hot served hot cold served cold and so on – get the basics righ
