Favorite Things About Staying in a Hotel

There are some lovely things about staying in a hotel, particularly when doing so is a treat, rather than a work obligation. Here are my current five favorite things, prompted by recent visits to the Old St. Francis Hotel in Bend, Oregon and the Ashland Springs Hotel in Ashland, Oregon. Each of them is simple and yet make me so happy!

  1. Lovely soap
  2. Nice clean sheets
  3. Bathrobes
  4. Soft towels
  5. Playing with all the amenities

Can I sleep too much?

If your head starts hurting, but you keep forcing yourself back to sleep, you probably ought to just get up. And if you keep dreaming about peeing in the bed, you probably ought to get up to go to the bathroom. Otherwise, the more the better.
