Travelling Tips - Important Hotel Safety Information

If you are planning a vacation whether it's it is one of many all inclusive vacations or all inclusive holidays it is important that you know a little bit about hotel safety. Today, hotels diligently work to try and ensure the safety of their visitors. They are always trying to make improvements to their security but there are still things that you need to know about what does make for a safe hotel.

First things first, never give up your safety to save a few dollars. It's true that a really nice hotel room can put a damper on your budget but it will be far more costly if you reserve a place that might be in a bad place or may not be up to code with their security requirements.

Once you have found the area in which you would like to stay at, you can start narrowing down your choices by taking into consideration some of the following things with regards to the safety of the hotel.

Make that their rooms have dead bolts and of course a peep hole. Ask if the rooms have what is known as electronic guest room locks. These are locks that require a key card instead of an actual key. Also find out if the rooms have phones that have emergency call buttons or that they have the ability to place an emergency call outside of your hotel.

Make sure if you look at photos of the hotel online that the hallways look like they have amble lighting as well as the lobbies and garages. A well lit area will always help keep down on crime. Make sure that the hotel has limited entry options which means less traffic especially from those who are not staying at the hotel. Also see if the hotel offers around the clock concierge services or security services. It's always better to know there is always someone on duty in the hotel.

If the hotel you will be staying at is out of the country, it is a very good idea to see if it's in a safe place by simply contacting the U.S. Embassy that is located in the country you will be traveling to.

Once you decide upon a hotel, it is important that once you get there that you keep your suitcases and other luggage with you always. If there is someone there that offers to take your bags up for you make sure to get their name and if you have a computer with you, wallet and other items of worth, don't let them take those with the other items.. Make sure that after you check in you grab some matchbooks or business cards from the hotel to carry with you at all times, in case you get lost.

When choosing your room it is probably a good idea to select a room that is on the 8th floor or below that. Although the higher floors will give you a better view, you need to know that most fire departments anywhere cannot reach any higher than 8 floors. You also should not take a bottom floor room if it has easy access to the outside, if it's easy for you to access the outside it should be easy for a stranger to access your room.

Rooms that are near the elevators are probably the safest rooms. Even though they are probably the rooms that get the most noise they still tend to be the safest because the rooms that are more intimate and are found in any alcoves also open them up for easier access by criminals.

Once you are in your room it is important that you check your deadbolt and safety chain to make sure they work. Make sure that the phone actually is able to let you make outside calls. You should also check for the closest fire exits and make sure to count the doors along the hallway so you know how far it is to get to safety.
