Alarm Clocks, Housekeeping and Hotel Stays: Forewarned Is Forearmed
I just learned an invaluable lesson in hotel travel -- always check the alarm clock in your room. It's an unwelcome surprise when the alarm goes off at 6am and you've planned to sleep until 9 or later. On a similar note, don't forget to leave the "Do Not Disturb" door hanger outside if you'd like to sleep in. I had a one-two-three punch this morning: the alarm sounded at 7, the snooze feature made it re-sound at 8,and housekeeping arrived at 9. My first appointment was scheduled for 10:30am. My dumb luck.
