Another Travel Tip I Should Have Known Already

Alarm clocks in hotel rooms, when they exist at all, are evil and unreliable. They don’t work like a normal alarm clock. See it for four PM, and it will go off at four AM, or not at all.

  1. Well, I don’t wear a wrist-watch anymore, but my Samsung i330 (smartphone with Palm) has an alarm, albeit wimpy.
    You could also use AOLbyPhone which partners with some automated wake-up call service and have it call your hotel room and/or cellphone and set the most obnoxious ringer on your phone.
    Or, you could just call down to the hotel and ask them for a wake-up call, but I find those pretty useless since they only call your hotel room and most hotel phone ringers won’t wake me up. So, this might not be a great option.
    In the end, it’s a good travel tip: bring your own alarm if you need to be awake at a certain time. Or, tell the escort to stay the night and wake you up in the morning … but that could get expensive. :-P
