Simple Techniques To Be Much Safer in Hotel Rooms

Staying in a hotel? Prioritize your safety with these easy-to-follow techniques.

Techniques for safer rooms in hotels

Opt for rooms between the 3rd and 6th floors. They're less accessible for potential intruders but reachable by emergency services.

1. Choose Higher Floors

Always ensure the door locks securely behind you. Use deadbolts and security chains when inside.

2. Double Check Locks

Avoid using the "clean my room" sign. It signals you're not in.

3. Don't Advertise Absence

Upon entering, check all hiding spots (under the bed, closets) to ensure no one's inside.

4. Inspect the Room

Don't say your room number aloud in public areas. If someone needs to know, write it down.

5. Keep Personal Info Private

Store valuables like passports, jewelry, and electronics in the in-room safe.

6. Use the Safe

Don't open the door to strangers. Call the front desk to verify any unexpected staff visits.

7. Be Cautious with Visitors

If your room has a balcony, ensure sliding doors lock properly. Consider using a rod to bar the track.

8. Secure Sliding Doors

Familiarize yourself with emergency exits and evacuation plans.

9. Stay Informed

Travel with a rubber doorstop to wedge under your door for added security at night.

10. Use a Doorstop
