Connecting doorI wrote yesterday about how you should request a room without a connecting room door so you have a much quieter experience. I’ve also written about why you should always doublecheck to make sure your connecting room door is locked for safety reasons. But as I type this, I’m sitting in my bed at the Dallas Renaissance Hotel and I can hear everything the couple in the room nextdoor is saying. And they probably have no idea how clearly I can hear them (because I’m not making any noise).

So, I’ve decided I should make a tip about not speaking too loudly or more importantly about sensitive matters in a hotel room with a connecting room door. You have no idea who might be listening.

    Johnny for fear of being too delicate – perhaps mentioning that sometimes
    the headboard of the bed is very close (attached?) to the wall, so that
    (let’s just say) “jumping” on the bed will cause your neighbor sleepless

    I generally turn on the tv (even if I’m not going to be watching it) while I make phone calls or have conversations I don’t want overheard.

    Put laptop with loop video on YouTube playing facing the door , that way any conversation willl be so mixed with the loop video it will not be able to be understood.
