Ha! We love this slideshow from Smarter Travel on "annoying" people in hotels, from kids who push EVERY button in elevators and parents who let their kids run amok to public fighters to noisy neighbors. Tell us what's missing from the list - like people who "save" multiple lounge chairs by the pool but never use them (one of our favorites).
The 10 Most Annoying People You Meet in Hotels
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month - Why Not Try Quitting Now?
November is officially Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and hotels around the world are encouraging guests to take a proactive approach to end smoking habits and reduce their chances of lung cancer. HotelChatter lists a few packages, programs and treatments being offered by a select few in this article, including properties in the UK, Australia, Portugal and - closer to home - southern Florida.
Of course, there's always the cold turkey route...but friends and family might not want you sticking close to home for that. So go ahead - book a night (or two or three) at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel instead!
Helping Travelers Maintain a Fitness Routine While On the Road
We just read a great article by USA Today's Nancy Trejos about hotels making it easier to stay fit on the road. More hotels are offering unique fitness programs in an effort to appeal to travelers who are committed to keeping up with a fitness routine. Not surprising, these offerings coincide with similar efforts to bring healthier dining options to hotel restaurants and room service menus so travelers can avoid packing on the pounds while away from home.
The article highlights some fitness options available to guests at various hotels across the country, including the Sheraton (and the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel). Notes Trejos, "Guests at Sheraton Hotels and Resorts also have access to four 30-minute video-on-demand workouts for free" and "can order a complimentary 'workout in a bag,' including workout cards, a workout mat, foam rolls, resistance band and massage stick to be delivered to their room."
Saying Bye Bye to Summer – Labor Day Travel Looking Good for the Industry
Hard to believe it’s that time of year again!

Travel website Kayak noted the most popular hotel destinations include Las Vegas, New York and Atlanta, and Orbitz also reported the first two cities as popular destinations in addition to Chicago.
