5 benefits of living in a hotel

It’s safe to say that the majority of people live in a house or appartment. I do too. However, ever since I was little, I had this fantasy about living in a hotel. Now I’m sure I’m not the only one, because I’ve read articles about people who actually live in hotels. So I’m chuffed to find out this dream is still a possibility! Here are a few of the benefits…

–          Not having to clean your room!

This is a huge benefit for the slobs among us. Imagine having your bed made, clean floors and dust free furniture without having to do anything! I’ve become quite the ‘Miss Tidy’, but I wouldn’t say no to a nice cleaning lady who keeps everything spic-and-span!

–          Free shampoo and toilet paper!

Well, “free” is probably a bit optimistic. I’m sure it’s all included in the room rate, but still… you never have to worry about running out of toilet paper or basic toiletries. 

–          No furniture to move!

If you move in or out, you don’t have to take the furniture with you. In fact, you’re probably not allowed to either… But it probably saves a lot of effort and hassle.

–          Becoming friends with the staff!

I’ve always liked the idea that if you live in a hotel, you always have someone to talk to at every hour of the day. And if you don’t feel like socialising, you can retreat to the privacy of your own room!

–          Breakfast foods!

Every morning you can enjoy a full breakfast with the choice of loads of different foods. Most decent hotels have an ‘all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet’, which is a good thing if you’re a breakfast foods lover like me! On top of that, you don’t have to wash any dishes!

Am I missing any benefits? Comment and let me know!

  1. I’m heading to try this out in September. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes! So far, in cost alone it’s cheaper. We are temporarily moving to a college town. Apartment rates are crazy. Add in that we have two young children age 9-10 and the cheapest rates we could afford are in a low income housing district (since we will both be students) I feel safer knowing we will move into the hotel that is staffed 24/7. I’m excited about this and will be sure to blog about it in the coming months

    • Hello! Thank you for your comment! I have never tried living in a hotel myself (yet)… but I hope it’s going to be a lovely experience for you and your family 🙂 Let me know how it went!
