Tips For Doing Your Laundry At An Extended Stay Hotel

One of the many advantages that you'll encounter when you book a room at an extended stay hotel is the ability to use the on-site laundry facility. If you're staying for several days, the ability to do laundry before you check out can be highly enticing. And, even if you're only staying for one night, you might still wish to make use of this amenity. If you're used to doing laundry at home, there's no need to be intimidated by having to use the laundry room at your extended stay hotel. Here are some tips that you can employ to successfully get the job done in your lodging accommodations.

Don't Worry About Change

If it has been several years or perhaps even a couple decades since you last did a load of laundry outside of your home, you might recall the coin-operated machines that you used. This recollection may initially cause panic as you realize that you aren't traveling with many coins because of your preference to use your credit card over cash. Don't feel as though you need to scramble to get a pocket full of change to do your laundry. Most laundry facilities at extended stay hotels have machines that you can operate with a credit card.

Buy The Necessary Supplies On Site

Before your trip, you might be thinking about the perks of doing laundry at the hotel, and begin the time-consuming effort of putting together some laundry supplies. For example, you might place some of your laundry detergent from home in a travel-sized container. This approach can work, but it's not the only option. You'll notice a vending machine in the laundry room of your hotel that sells all the supplies that you'll need, including detergent, fabric softener, and more. For a few dollars, it's easiest to just buy and use these items instead of travel with them.

Always Consider The Sink

If you have a large family with significant laundry needs, using a couple washers at the same time is always a good idea. However, if only one machine is available and you're in a bit of a rush, you can always turn to the sink in your room. Extended stay hotel rooms often have a bathroom sink and a kitchen sink, which will give you more than enough space to wash some socks or underwear, which you can then dry in a hurry with the help of the hair dryer in your room.

Hotel Happenings: Making The Most Of Your Travel

The very first time we took a vacation as a family, I was absolutely awestruck by the hotel where we stayed. The support staff, the room service, the breakfast bar, and the general environment made me feel special. I knew then that I would grow up to learn everything I could about the industry. I've spent my entire adult life traveling and exploring different types of resorts, hotels, and other facilities. I've learned a lot of tricks of the trade, and I created this site to share them with you. I hope the information here helps you make the most of your next vacation.
