If you’re bringing your laptop, don’t forget to have an A/V cable in your bag. Some hotels not only have TVs in their rooms but some provide free wireless internet. You can connect your laptop with the A/V cable to the hotel TV and access more entertainment choices such as internet streaming on a bigger screen or watching movie with your laptop as DVD player.

If you’re traveling with kids and don’t want them to get hooked to video games, you can inform the front desk staff to disable this option before your kids can have access to them. Oftentimes, these video games even result to additional charges to your hotel bill.

Traveling with small children can be challenging, especially letting them sleep on time. If you don’t want to miss your favorite TV shows while on vacation, it is best to book a hotel room with division for separate sleeping beds for the kids, so they can rest without distractions and have that comfortable homey feel even in an unaccustomed place.
