A Hotel Is A Hotel, Right?

I recently travelled to another country. And no, not a non-English speaking one, and not one that I had never been to before, that’s a whole other topic for a whole other article. I travelled to England and for the first time ever there, stayed in a hotel and not with relatives or friends. This hotel was in a big city, close to train stations and major attractions, and a beautiful, clean facility. That being said, I did notice some differences from staying in typical North American hotels.

The first thing was that the room utilized all of its space really well. There was a place for everything and everything was in its place. Instead of a headboard, they had used giant framed pieces of art that doubled as both a headboard and visual focal point for the room.

Since I was going from one electric voltage to another, I had brought an adapter plug with me, but found I didn’t need it to charge my phone as I could simply use the on-wall charging station. But here’s something that I found odd, the bathroom was partitioned from the main living space of the room only by a glass sliding door. It didn’t lock and it didn’t even reach all the way to the wall, so there was always a gap. In North America we are trained to go into the bathroom, close the heavy wooden door, lock it and then go about our business. Not so there, and as a friend pointed out, there was also no extractor fan and no window. The toilet also had two flush options– I’ll leave that to you to figure out.
