#UK 17 things you should definitely ask for the next time you check in to a hotel

Hotel rooms have a ton of free amenities that are just waiting for the travelers who are savvy enough to ask for them. 

Since many of these items aren’t found in the rooms themselves, guests often don’t even realize they’re available free of charge. 

We spoke to representatives from Hilton Worldwide and Starwood Hotels and Resorts, who helped us put together a list of free amenities you should snag during your next trip.

It turns out you can often get everything from free GoPro camera rentals to curling irons sent straight to your room.

Phone chargers and adapters

If you forgot your phone charger or just don’t have the proper adapter, check with the hotel’s front desk, as they will often lend out their extras.

Participating hotels include the Sheraton Puerto Rico — which just launched its Energizer Butler program that provides complimentary chargers for a variety of mobile devices — and the Kimpton and Hyatt hotels. 

Better pillows

Some hotels have been trying out pillow menus that allow guests to select their preferred pillows based on different levels of firmness, shapes, and suitability for sleeping habits.

Some pillows help decrease snoring, while others were basically made for a lazy morning in bed. Conrad Hotels offer guests the option to select from their pillow menu or even pre-book their favorites though the mobile concierge app. Acqualina Resort & Spa also offers the service free of charge.

Curling irons and straightening irons

For ladies who forgot to pack a straightening iron or curling iron, several hotels will have them on hand.

Hyatt hotels, Kimpton hotels, and the W Paris-Opéra include these items in their list of complimentary amenities upon request.
