Enjoy your hotel stay with these useful tips part 5


When travelling, your hotel experience is a core element of the success of your trip. With thousands of kilometres of travel under his belt, as well as the insights gained from many years in the hotel industry, Nicholas Barenblatt, Group Marketing Manager of Protea Hotels, a proud member of Marriott International, a leading global hotel group, has lots of advice to share – the sorts of things that can make all the difference to your stay being memorable for the right reasons.

When you leave

Ask hotel reception how long it’ll take to get to the airport from the hotel, and what the best transport options are for the journey. Their on-the-ground knowledge may provide information that not even Google Maps will ever reveal.

Ensure that you’ve set aside a few minutes to check the room before you leave.  The things that are most often forgotten are cell phones and cell phone chargers, double adaptors, spectacles, medication, and small items of jewellery.
