THE role of a hotel worker can be exhausting, thanks to dirty rooms, difficult guests and round-the-clock service.
But guests can make the lives of staff easier, and if you're wondering how – some hotel workers have come up with a few ways we can help.
The first thing guests can do is avoid being too romantic.
While a passionate hotel getaway might be a nice thing to do for your loved one, when hotel guests put rose petals on the bed and in the bath – it can cause a headache for staff.
A hotel worker has taken to community sharing site Reddit to share their pet peeve of guests leaving flowers in the room.
Susansonly wrote: "Please don't do the flower petal thing unless you clean it up.
"Yes it is romantic. But no one wants to pick up flower petals you and your partner rolled all over naked on.
"Also don't put the flower petals in the jacuzzi tubs. They stain them and are hard to get out of the jets."

The next thing guests could do to help hotel staff – and themselves – is to report it if something is broken.
Staff hate it when guests don't tell them something is wrong, and then a guest uses it as a reason to punish hotel workers.
Hob_0_Rarison wrote on Reddit: "If something is broken or not working correctly, report it to the front desk.
"A lot of people won’t say anything about a light out or a slow drain, and then we get someone who is super b****y and having a bad day and uses that to punish the staff. Just let us know, and we’ll take care of it."
Finally, guests can help staff by not making the bed when they are checking out.
While it may seem like you are being helpful, staff will need to change the bedding anyway before the next guest arrives, so it just wastes their time untucking the sheets.
Hotel worker and Reddit user Reijeux wrote: "Don't remake your bed if you're checking out. A lot of people have thought they were helping by fixing their beds for the next guest, but… the sheets are going to be changed anyway.
"Who wants to sleep in used bedsheets from the previous person?"
Sun Online previously reported on a hotel worker has revealed the annoying things guests ask her for every single day – and they always want something for free.
Another hotel worker has shared the things guests do that mean she won't give them an upgrade.
