To keep those hoteliers sweet, on your next travel adventure why not consider these hotel etiquette tips;

Tips – Think about how hard the staff have worked cleaning up after you during your stay and leave them a tip. I also leave my western magazines, books and toiletries I have finished with which is appreciated in non-western countries.
Courtesy – Be a polite and courteous guest, both to other guests and also to staff at the hotel. Don’t make unreasonable demands and don’t raise your voice or lose your temper.
Clean – If you don’t use the floor as a waste bin at home, then don’t do it in a hotel either. If you do then shame on you!
Complain – Have reasonable expectations and only complain if necessary. Some of the complaints on review websites can seem pretty lame.
