How To Tips: Let’s Prep The Guest Room For The Holidays

The holiday season is right around the corner, so it’s time to get the guest room up to five stars. Over the years, there are a few prepping tasks I always do before I host to make an enjoyable stay for out-of-towners. 

Time to make that extra room user-friendly and somewhat cozy. Check that outlets are easily accessible for phone chargers and make sure there is an open spot for suitcases to park. I like to put the linens somewhere they can find easily, or I even set a fresh set out for their arrival.

Stock up on extras. Keep a few essentials stocked, such as a toothbrush, shampoo or a razor, so guests aren't in a pinch if they forget something. I also make sure there are some welcoming luxuries, such as nice lotion and a cozy blanket, in plain sight for them to enjoy.

Go the extra mile for the guests who traveled far. Shopping around for some local St. Louis goodies is a fun way to welcome guests and thank them for taking the time to pay a visit. Or, add fresh flowers to the room, or fresh eucalyptus to the shower for a hotel feel.
