Per The Cheat Sheet:

  • Hotel Glassware: You’ll want to avoid the hotel glassware, whether it be in the room or the bathroom. Opt for plastic cups if the hotel offers, as there’s no guarantee the maid cleaned the glassware and if so it could have even been with the same rag used to clean the toilet!
  • Pillow Cases: Many hotels try to “go green” these days, so they won’t change linen on a daily basis. Even for those hotels that do, they tend to skim on changing the pillow cases.
  • Remote Control: Wondering what’s the direst thing in your hotel room that you’ll want to avoid. The remote control is rarely cleaned and something that you’ll want to want to think twice before using.

  1. A Fairfield Inn hotel I stayed at recently had placed individually wrapped antibacterial wipes next to the remote controls. I wish this was the rule rather than the exception!
