Hotel simplicity

Freshness Warning
This article is over 12 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current.

The hotel I’m staying at, Hampton Inn, is small (the rooms are tiny), but has several pleasant features. Most of these are centered around just making things easier for business travellers. First of all, the power outlet attached to the desk lamp works when the light is off. There’s also several other outlets in the vicinity of the desk, some you can reach without climbing under the desk.

The other annoyance I often have with hotels is a hotel room iron that doesn’t have enough cord to reach from a convenient outlet to a space large enough to hold the ironing board. This often leads to a comical attempt to iron while kneeling on the bed. With the length of the cord on the iron in this room, I could plug it in and then iron out by the elevators.

I stay at Hampton Inns quite a bit and really enjoy them. Free in-room internet is a plus, and free wifi by the pool!
