Living In A Hotel Full-Time

Can you permanently live in a hotel? Is it possible? Is it crazy to live in a hotel? What does it feel like, living in a hotel?  Is it for the wealthy and elite or is it reasonable for the common person as well? These are some of the questions that arise in a person’s mind when they think of living in a hotel permanently.

How can you survive in a hotel?

There are a lot of things you could do to live in a hotel full-time:

Get rid of everything you didn’t use in a year: This raises two important factors: learning to save & learning to adapt and adjust. There's a high chance you don't need things you haven't used in a year. You spend less time thinking of moving around your stuff, and more time having memorable experiences.

Deal for long stays: Talk to the owner ahead of time to discuss a special rate for your stay. 

Cost of Living: It depends on what sort of lodging you are searching for and how long you expect to stay. The longer you live, the better rate that you ought to be able to get. Obviously, if you choose a high-end hotel, you're going to get some pretty high rates quoted. If you prefer a smaller chain, though, you can consider rates even fairer. Know, there are many hotels with kitchens built for long-term visitors, so it's still worth studying first.

The cost of living depends on the scale of the area, how the hotels are doing on the market, whether or not you demand that your room be washed every day, among other factors. One thing to keep in mind is that in certain states, after spending a month in a row, you are no longer eligible for state taxes from day 31 onwards. So this could be advantageous.

Living in a hotel can be just as expensive. Depending on your living conditions and whether you can subtract costs, it can be less costly or more costly. The money saved each month by living in a hotel includes expenses of gas and power, waste and water, TV, cable, internet, essential living, cleaning materials, new beds, towels, laundry detergent, house washing and furniture.

Perks of living in a hotel:

  1. Room service and concierge are open 24 hours: You don't have a cleanliness problem. You don't need to make your bed every day. You do not need to use the same towel for 2 weeks. You don't need to take your own garbage out.
  1. Free newspapers, breakfast, coffee or tea: Many hotels have complimentary breakfast included in the package and even free newspapers.
  1. Having your own kitchen and amenities: You are provided with everything you need, like cutlery, scissors, chopping board, kitchen towels, dishes, cups, containers, pots, pans, colanders, stove, toasters and microwaves.
  1. Flexibility: Whichever hotel you like, you can pick. You also have the convenience to check the amenities and find out whether it's close to a grocery store or essential markets.
  1. Fewer bills: You will skip expense divisions for electricity, income tax, insurance, renovations and upkeep. Cable is always offered and you will also be able to use it to get internet thrown in. If your hotel has a swimming pool and a gym, you can forgo the monthly gym fees.

Disadvantages of living in a hotel:

  1. No fixed address: Not having a permanent address presents many issues that people take for granted, such as for deliveries and gifts, but also for having to update your identity or hold a painfully thorough list of who is to be contacted, in the untimely event of your death.
  1. Not having close contact with friends and family: You can end up in towns where you simply don't know anybody. This might just make you feel lonely.
  1. Less space: Obviously, your personal items will get less storage. There's no chance a garden will grow. Your potential children or pets may not enjoy long periods of living in a small hotel room.

You never have to:

  • make your bed
  • wash your sheets
  • do the dishes
  • vacuum your room or sweep your place.
  • shop for home furnishings like paintings
  • hold plants or a yard

Tips and Tricks

  • Many hotels have a low rate policy that stipulates the cost is guaranteed to be cheaper whether you contact the hotel directly or book directly from their site.
  • Call the hotel and ask for the Manager of the front desk, Sales Officer, Rooms Section.
  • The more rooms you book and the more nights you spend in the room, the lower the fee.
  • To tackle catered activities such as breakfast, lunch and dinner, contact the sales manager and inquire about discounts and cheaper prices.
  • Maintain a cordial relationship with the staff. Have a nice environment with them, and they can be your source of support.

Living in a hotel is a rare and daunting decision. Is it possible? Definitely! Is it probable and practical? You be the judge.
