Tips Inspired by Hamptonality from Hampton Hotels

Hampton Only Logo

I am an avid traveler. We stay in a lot of hotels every year. Some for business and some for vacation.

The holidays add an entirely new level of stress to me every year. There is always so much going on that I have to plan every single detail down to the last minute. It is tough. As much as I enjoy the holidays there are times when I am counting down the days until they are over.

We usually have a lot of out of town guest whether they are coming to visit or passing through for a night or two. As a result, I book at lot of hotels are the holiday season.

TIPS INSPIRED BY HAMPTONALITY

Hampton has partnered with entertaining expert, Jenny Steffens Hobick, to celebrate little holiday moment makers by providing “Hamptonality” to travelers this holiday season. I have shared a few of her tips below along with how I make them work for me.

Surprise your guests with welcome treats
I usually make little goodie bags for our overnight guests. I might leave a few snacks in there plus some bath oil and sometimes a nice set of pajamas. I give them brand new soap that is something fun that I just purchased for them.
Be prepared with lots of snacks
I treat my guests like I treat my children. I fill a large, rectangle shaped snack basket and keep it well stocked while guests are visiting. They are easy to grab and go plus a little sign on it says, “No need to ask, just help yourself!”
Post the plan
We have a large desk calendar hanging by the back door on the wall in the kitchen. This is where we enter and leave the home. I post plans for everything on that calendar so everyone in the house can see the plan and what is going on.
Make time for resting
I schedule naps and/or down time. I tend to over plan so scheduling these things in ensures that we all get rest or time just to relax.
Big breakfasts
I always make certain to serve guests a big, hearty breakfast to prepare them for the day ahead. To save myself time, I make a French toast casserole or a quiche.
Make your home “help yourself” friendly
Besides the never ending snack basket in the kitchen, I have temporary labels that come in so handy when guests are visiting. We label all of the rooms, cabinets in the kitchen and so much more. I believe in making it easy and by creating an environment where guests don't have to hunt for anything, they can then spend more time relaxing.
Prepare!
I spend a lot of time preparing. Sheets are washed. Beds are made. Towel animals are in place (ok totally kidding on that one). But I try to make everything perfect. I prepare.
