With clothes, souvenirs and food all over the place, some rooms can be confusing to clean. Is always easier if the hotels put a card with some basic indications to the guests just like, leaving the dirty towels on the floor and putting away clothes or personal items specially the ones on the bed.
The confusing “Do Not Disturb” sign
A lot of housekeepers say that there is a great deal of guests that leave the room very early and in a hurry and leave the “Do Not Disturb” sign hanging in an awkward position or find the car thrown in the floor.

This is a patented product that is mounted on the door that can only be operated from the inside so that way the staff will always be sure to clean the room or give the guests some privacy.
