In current times every person has at least three or more electrically dependent items on them. What they travel away from home with, probably doubles. So hotels, work with us!
In 2017 there should be a gateway to power every few centimeters.
Hank Green raised the issue on Twitter and it seemed to strike a nerve.
If you remodeled a hotel in 2017 and didn't put a single extra plug by the nightstand, we need to talk.— 🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢 (@hankgreen) October 9, 2017

Why are plugs close to your bed such a hard concept for hotels to grasp? I don't want to charge my phone in the next county!!— Shane ✈️ (@TheShaneFiles) August 11, 2017
How's it a thing that all hotels don't have bedside plugs standard? They expect us to plug in our phones far side of the room like savages— Steo (@srlbrooks) August 2, 2017

Hotels! We're dropping these nuggets of genius in your suggestion boxes.

Hotels should make wall plugs closer to their beds it would make everyone so much happier— Dustin (@dustin_manz) December 21, 2013
So may people work from "home" aka, their computers and hotel rooms; electronics need to be running.
@adammccombs No, but a suggestion. Take a 6 way plug strip. Hotels never have enough wall plugs: laptops, speakers, cell phone, ipad, etc.— Bill Woodland (@billwoodland) May 29, 2012
Why are there never plugs next to beds in hotels. Hello I need to charge my phone.— Hannah Brain (@MrsOrnsack) August 27, 2017
Boils my piss. I stay in so many hotels with work and it amazes me how few have plugs by beds. It's 2017 ffs— Mr Onion-Bucket (@shawncbrown) August 7, 2017
