How to Remember Your Room Number or Parking Spot
Before the pandemic, I was traveling so much that I sometimes forgot what my hotel room number was or where I had parked my car.
Heck, even when I wasn’t traveling so much, I still had embarrassing encounters, like the time I went to LAX for a media event and came back and thought for sure someone had stolen my car. I had remembered the parking level and number but after having a security guy help me, he finally said, “Could it be in the structure next door?” The parking structures are attached and the buildings are identical, as are the parking space numbers.
After that incident, I now always take a quick picture of my hotel room door or my parking spot number with my phone. If you’re parked in a really large parking structure, like at at the airport or at a stadium, also take a photo of the column or section you’re parked in. It’s so simple, and yet it can save you so much time and frustration.
