How to Avoid Ghosts in Hotel Rooms

The advises listed here are for people who travel frequently and stay in hotels, motels, rented apartments and hostels.

Always call the hotel in advance to reserve the room. Avoid walk-in. Sometime the hotel has full occupancy and you may desperately request them to find a room for you. Most hotels have a special vacant room kept for “special guests”, that are ghosts or wandering spirits. At that point of time, the hotel may allow you to check-in to that special room due to your desperate request. Do not check-in to that special room. Check-in to other hotels.

Before entering the room, always knock the door to respect the “special guests” although it is understood that the room is vacant. Sometime the “special guests” may be inside the vacant room.

After entering room, and if you or/and any accompanying family members feel unusual cold or/and smell something stinky similar to decomposed rat; leave the room immediately. Do not proceed to find out the problems. Please note that the air-conditioning system was off by the central air-con thermostat or remote control. If possible, check-out this hotel and check-in to other hotel or otherwise change room.

Prior to check-in, always ask a room which is near to human traffic such as lift lobby etc. Do not check-in to a room which is at end of a corridor. This is because the last room has less occupancy rate which is very “yin”.

After entering the room, switch on the lights and open window curtains to allow sunlight to come in. Sunlight is “yang” energy.

When you go to bed, always switch on one light. It is up to your choice which light you prefer to switch on. Example : toilet light, bedside light or entrance light etc. This is to supply “yang” energy in the room during the night.

Before you go to bed, always turn one shoe upside down ( either left or right ). This is to form “yin-yang”, a balanced energy in the room so that you can sleep without disturbances.

If you are staying alone in a twin beds room, always put something like your luggage or clothing on to the other bed before you sleep.

After you enter the room, and you see an opened bible or islam book or other religious book on the writing desk, do not touch or close the bible, leave the room immediately. Request to change room or check-in to other hotel. This is because there is/are ghosts or evil spirits creating troubles in the room to the previous guests.

One last advise, carry a Feng-Shui compass with you. It has a few benefits for you beside being used for Feng-Shui audits. Hold the compass in your hands and enter the room. If the compass needle fluctuates violently as you moves around in the room, this indicates that there are ghosts or wandering spirits in the room. The room is very “yin” and has no steady magnitude of magnetic fields. Do not disturb …

Avoid These Common Hotel Personal Injury Accidents

Vacation is supposed to be a fun time for friends and family. The thought of having an accident or getting injured is something we all worry about before taking a trip, so we take all the necessary precautions to ensure we remain safe while traveling. What we don’t normally think about is our personal safety at hotels and resorts. Surprisingly enough, many vacationers are injured before they even have a chance to leave their hotel. Hotel accidents are common causes for personal injuries while traveling, but they can be avoided with the right knowledge. Continue reading to learn the most common hotel accidents and what to do if you are seriously injured at a hotel or vacation resort.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip, trip, and fall accidents are among the most common personal injury claims in the hospitality industry. In fact, they are also one of the most common accidents at airports. There are various causes for slip and fall accidents at hotels, including wet floors, uneven pavement, defective stair rails, ripped carpeting, warped floorboards, obstructions like cords and wire, poor lighting, and much more. Injuries that result from such accidents usually include orthopedic injuries, muscle injuries, and head injuries. Hotels have a duty of care to ensure their premises is safe for guests and employees, which includes staying on top of floor cleaning, maintenance, and safety.

Swimming Pool Accidents

Swimming pools are a major liability for a hotel or resort since so many things can go wrong involving guests. Swimming pools are prime targets for accidents, including head injuries, slipping and falling, drowning, and more. It is important to supervise children at all times, and to take heightened precaution when navigating around pool decks. Hotels have a duty of care to ensure their pools are safe and up to code. Pool decks should be textured to prevent slips, pool stairs should be properly lit and marked, liability and lifeguard signs should be in clear view, the water should be properly treated on a routine basis, filters should be changed, the area should be well lit, and so forth.

Defective Furniture

Although it is not something that would be obvious to the average person, defective furniture is a common problem at hotels. Often times, hotels will attempt to cut costs by repairing broken furniture themselves, rather than replacing it with new furniture. Sloppy and inexperienced handy work renders furniture unstable, therefore, unsafe. If a guest is using a piece of furniture, such as a chair, and it has been poorly repaired or assembled by the hotel staff, it can break and cause injuries to the guest. This is especially dangerous for toddlers, young children, and the elderly.

Premise Liability

As mentioned, hotels have a duty of care to ensure their premises are safe for everyone. Failing to do so reasonably can result in a premise liability lawsuit. They are obligated to maintain a safe environment, and prevent accidents wherever hazards may appear. Any accident that was reasonably foreseeable and easily …
