Don't be that guy.
It’s no secret travelers have some annoying habits; after all, they almost single-handedly support the selfie-stick business. But from bad behavior on the airplane to hosting naked photoshoots at popular landmarks, pesky tourists are the last things you want to deal with when you get to your hotel.
So what are those quirky, (and sometimes downright rude) behaviors that make your fellow travelers cringe? According to a 2015 study by Expedia, the top hotel etiquette faux pas is letting your kids run wild (inattentive parents take note) followed by, in close second, that rowdy crowd that parties, and consequently stumbles, through the hallways at 3 a.m. Other offenders include guests that berate hotel staff over minor problems, noisy neighbors and couples who may go a little too far with their PDA.
