The first thing I do after checking into a hotel room is to make myself at home. As a traveling salesperson for a Fortune 500 company, I was on the road 75% of the time. Over the years of living out of my suitcase and hotel rooms, I learned to make myself at home in whatever hotel room I was in.

I also learned what hotel amenities are important for business and leisure travelers, and I have to say that Springhill Suites by Marriott Prescott has so many of those amenities. You can read more about those later, but first let’s chat about how to make your hotel room feel like your home.

How to make your hotel room feel like your home

microwave, coffee station, wet bar and mini fridge are part of what makes this one of the best hotels in Prescott, AZ
Choose a hotel that offers suites for more space and a sense of home

First, book a hotel that offers suites with a kitchenette. Suites afford more space that gives you that “home away from home” feeling. My Springhill Suites by Marriott Prescott king studio with sofa bed and kitchenette provided plenty of that “homey” space.

Secondly, bring little, easy-to-carry items–like a bottle of wine or your favorite beverage, a candle, your favorite journal or magazine–and put them around the room. Don’t waste time, set up your personal “home décor” right away to make yourself feel welcome and “at home.” It’s like you are welcoming yourself into the space.

Next, take your toiletry bag to the bathroom and arrange your toiletries on the sink or in the shower. It’s almost like marking your space and will give you a sense of homecoming when you next enter the bath area.

Relax and recharge at one of the best hotels in Prescott

But it’s not hard to feel at home at the SpringHill Suites in Prescott. Bedside lamps with dimmer switches, there is a full-size sofa and artwork in happy green tones. I loved the twig/tree designs of the contemporary lamps and dimming the lights to the exactly right place for reading or relaxing. There are also plenty of outlets for recharging devices.

Here's where I wrote the notes for this article. I always love a desk with an ergonomic chair in my hotel room.

I’m surprised how many hotel-room remodels take out the desk. But not at Springhill Suites! In their recent renovation, they brought in new desks–with plenty of electric outlets to plug in phones and computers–and creamy-colored ergonomic chairs. As a travel writer, I always make use of the desk. I appreciated that the chair adjusted up and down for my long legs. And since I’m a recycling nut, I was happy to see recycling bin baskets.

The new renovation at Springhill Suites by Marriott Prescott sparkles with an upscale, urban theme that incorporates the colors of the surrounding Prescott National Forest. I enjoyed breakfast in the lobby/living area. Marriott’s focus on the health and safety of its guests and associates shone throughout my stay.
