Request a Room That Doesn’t Have a Connecting Door

Hotel 720x360 (from Unsplash)It seems like more and more hotels have connecting room doors—including some of the swanky ones. Whenever I see a connecting room door I know I’m in for a difficult night’s sleep, since you can usually hear everything. I’ve heard it all, from people talking, yelling, having sex, sneezing, and coughing to ringing phones to TVs playing.

My advice is to, when you check into a hotel, request a room without a connecting door—unless of course you want one because you’re traveling with your family or mistress or you’re a spy. And if you forget and find a connecting room door when you arrive in your room, call the desk and ask if it’s possible to move.

  1. We are always concerned that someone will be able to walk right in from the connecting room! We probably check the lock a dozen times before being able to sleep.
