Hotel Freebies: You Just Gotta Ask

My friends Dan and Alice just returned from a weekend trip to Seattle. They asked the Concierge of their hotel if he had any restaurant coupons. They got a fistful of 2-for-1 meals, free appetizers, gratis desserts, and other ways to save bucks on the road.

They also forgot their cell phone charger. The Concierge opened a drawer stuffed with all brands and asked them to pick the one they needed. Free for hotel guests.

That’s nothing. I once got a free toothbrush at The Regent in Sydney. But their tips can save you a lot more.
