Hotel stays can be frustrating, expensive and downright disappointing, but they don’t have to be. If you’re a bit assertive, a tad creative and maybe a little deceitful, you can sometimes get more than just the minimum out of your accommodation. Want to get some perks or save some money? We’ve compiled a list of handy hotel hacks to help you get the most out of your stay. They might not always work, but are certainly worth a try.
1. Offer a Review
If you are hoping for a little something extra, such as free breakfast or an upgraded room, it might help to drop the review line. Simply saying something like, “Are you on TripAdvisor? I would love to write a review” might just get you some sort of perk, depending on what the hotel has to offer. It’s worth a shot.
