*Guest room tip: Use a desk or narrow table along a wall as an amenities table. Place stacks of clean towels, a coffee pot, and some disposable cups there. Place a list of important information, like your wireless network code and the number for local taxi service, on the amenities table.

When i say "hotel" here, I mean top of the line luxury. You can do it at home. All you need to do is just click through to Hometalk to see her tutorial.
*Guest room tip: Leave not one, but two, sets of keys for your guest, so that she can never lock herself out.
