Tips

Instead of a ho-hum chocolate on your pillow at turndown, you might return to your room to find a mini Rubik's cube, an old-school paddle-ball game or a bright yellow, light bulb-shaped stress ball awaiting your return, accompanied by cards bearing quotes from famous wits like Benjamin Franklin and Emily Dickinson.
