In my opinion, hotel rooms often have a terrible plug set up. There either aren’t enough, they’re inaccessible, or they are in the wrong place. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to unplug an alarm clock or muscle a very heavy night stand out of the way to plug my phone in. It’s one of my biggest travel pet peeves! The worst was when I went to Blog World in 2011 and stayed in the Westin Bonaventure. A great hotel, with famous elevators, a lovely room, and zero accessible plugs.
So imagine how excited I was when I got to my room in the Hampton Inn in West Haven last week and found this:
Not one, not two, but THREE plugs sitting right on the desk! Plus it had two USB plugs. Then when I started getting ready to go to bed, I realized there was another one on the nightstand! I don’t know if this is a new program Hampton Inn is rolling out, but I think these are great and all hotels should have them.
Readers, have you seen any great plug situations lately? Any terrible ones?
