Lack Of Privacy Can Be A Drawback At Hotels
• While in the hotel lobby, you may be subject to hidden video cameras and monitoring by security staff.
• While in your room, you may be subject to sudden and unexpected room checks from maids or other staff, such as hotel plumbers or repairmen.
• If you want to be left alone, it can be difficult to find total privacy at a hotel. However, staff will usually respect a "Do Not Disturb" sign hung on their door.
Hotels also vary widely; you may find some hotels are noisy, with thin walls that allow you to hear what's going on in other rooms. It's hard to judge a hotel simply by an ad or a few reviews; until you actually stay there, you won't really know what's it's like. Luckily, there are many ways to hedge your bets by checking out hotels on the Internet, or through the Better Business Bureau. To examine the advantages and disadvantages of certain hotels, perform thorough Google searches, and then look for the most reasonably priced hotel that has all of the amenities you need, and the fewest obvious pitfalls and drawbacks.
