I came across an interesting update in my Facebook newsfeed yesterday that actually had me pondering. Hyatt conducted an online survey of U.S. business travelers and found that while women and men have predominately similar wants and needs when traveling, how they actually live on the road differs than how they live at home.
An interesting subcategory of the study was related to things people do at home vs. what they’ll do in a hotel room. As you can see from the infographic below, 87% people in the study admitted to doing things in their hotel rooms that they normally do not do at home.
Based on the study, some women spend their time in hotels having breakfast in bed, sleeping late, and being messy, while men admit to spending more time walking around in the nude, eating/drinking excessively, and getting ready.
What are some things you do in a hotel room that you don’t really do at home?
For me, the most obscure thing I did in a hotel room (that I sadly can not say I have the same privileges to do so at home) was sit in my own personal sauna, then go for a stretch in the in-room ballet studio (oh the joys of the Presidential Suite at the Grand Hyatt Istanbul); however, that’s obviously not a typical hotel experience for me.
During a more “normal stay” at a hotel, I tend to gravitate towards “me time” by slipping on a bathrobe and slippers and throwing on a clay face mask.
How about you? Please keep responses PG… fine, PG-13.
