Hints from heloise

King Features Syndicate

Dear Heloise: Here are a few of my suggestions on ways a hotel room can be improved:

Brighter lighting.

Dressing-table areas separate from shower area.

Mirrors for those who can’t apply makeup without their glasses. The dresser mirrors are set back too far to be of use.

More towel racks.

Air conditioners that don’t blow directly on you when you are sleeping. I just spent three miserable nights with this situation. — Judith A. Williams, Marietta, Ohio

Judith, have you been in the same rooms I have? There are a lot of nice things in rooms today, like hair dryers, coffee makers and skirt hangers. But many things can be improved. My hint? The manager should spend one night a month in a typical room.Heloise
