Garden Court Motel Tips: HOW TO SLEEP BETTER IN A HOTEL?

WHEN YOU MAKE THE RESERVATION

Make sure you get a quiet room. Two vital and well-known requests when choosing a room are: requesting a room on a higher floor and away from the elevators. Also, book a room in the middle of the corridor, as in general, this part is the quietest on the floor, as it is far from vending machines, laundries, exits and other places that cause a lot of noise. On the other hand, it would be good to get a room that is at least two or three levels away from the banquet rooms, bars or other public spaces present in the hotel.

In addition to asking the respective questions about the rooms, also asks if the hotel is under repair or renovation. Often times, these jobs are done in segments (one floor or section at a time). You want to avoid floors adjacent to all the work done. Also, if you have neck or back problems, ask about pillows.

Some hotels keep firmer pillows in room closets or have them stored in a hotel space. And in case the hotel does not have what you need, consider bringing those from home.

WHAT TO PACK TO SLEEP BETTER?

  • Ear plugs: Although they are uncomfortable, ear plugs will help you a lot to avoid the sounds that come from outside. Also, you will most likely prefer a bit of cotton in your ears than hear all the screaming people and annoying noises from the machines.
  • Sleep mask: While earplugs help you avoid noise; an eye mask will be useful to avoid bright lights that can filter into the room.
  • Pack your own sheets: If you have space to spare, take the sheets that you use at home, as these will help you sleep better since you are used to the aroma and feel of these.
  • Pack a room freshener: Sometimes the chemicals and cleaners used in rooms are a bit harsh. Therefore, bring flavorings that you use at home and that give a relaxed feeling to the room so that you can sleep better that way.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR SLEEP?

  • Try not to read, eat, or work in bed. Sometimes this is not possible as sitting is a limited action within a hotel room. Don't use the bed for anything other than sleeping.
  • Don't go overboard with your dinner food. An agitated stomach from digesting a large dinner interferes with sleep.
  • Drink some tea or any other hot infusion, as these can induce sleep. However, don't drink from a very large cup, as that will only cause you to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

JUST BEFORE SLEEPING

  • Hang some signs on the door like "Do Not Disturb". This is important if you plan to sleep in late, as sometimes room service will start working early. If you don't have one in your room, ask for it at the reception.
  • Set support alarms. How many times have you tried to set an alarm on a strange clock, so that in the end it never goes off and you have to get out of bed in a hurry? To avoid this hassle, make sure you have backup alarms, such as a hotel wake-up call, cell phone, or a reliable clock.
  • Take a hot shower. In addition to relaxing your body, a bath lowers your body temperature a bit, which can help you sleep better.

WHEN YOU ARE IN BED

  • Breathe deeply. Being outside of your comfort zone can be stressful. So relax your muscles and breathe as deeply as possible.
  • Don't wait to report the noises. Hotel rooms have very thin walls and many times people do not realize that their conversations can be heard by everyone. Sometimes hitting the wall will be efficient in silencing loud neighbors, but if you don't like doing that, just call the front desk. They will take care of warning people that they are making others uncomfortable.
  • Ask to change rooms. Every tenant should have the option of choosing another room that is quieter if uncontrollable noises such as traffic or machines persist. Sure, it's not that convenient to carry everything from one place to another overnight and hotels are sometimes fully booked, but it's something you might consider doing the next morning if you plan to stay for more than a day.
  • Get off the bed if you cannot sleep. This is a good rule of thumb, whether you're at home or on the road. Instead of rolling over and finding the perfect position, get out of bed, turn on the light, and do something to distract yourself until you feel sleepy again.
Often, sleeping in a hotel is not easy, because there will always be annoying noises that reach the room or you simply do not feel comfortable because it is a strange place.

Therefore, make sure you bring everything you need to make your stay more pleasant, such as your own pillows or fragrances. Try to choose a room that is away from the annoying noises of the machines and if you are unlucky to have noisy neighbors next to you, do not hesitate to call reception.
