  • at the Standard hotel in New York City.

  • Youll learn phrases and vocabulary that you might use at a hotel, likeamenitiesorincidentals’.

  • Well order room service together and enjoy some amazing views.

  • First, let's check in.

  • Hi! Um, I booked online.

  • Rachel Smith.

  • And then about an hour after I booked, I booked an upgrade.

  • I’m using the verb here tobook’.

  • I’m sure youre very familiar with the noun version of this word, book,

  • but it’s also a verb which means to reserve something.

  • I booked a hotel room, you could also book a table at a restaurant.

  • This means youve made a reservation.

  • You could book a venue for your wedding, or a concert venue could book an act or band.

  • The bar around the corner booked my friend’s band for Friday.

  • Here, OO makes the UH as in PUSH vowel.

  • Book.

  • Uh. Book.

  • So both the nounbookand the verbbookare pronounced exactly the same.

  • Hi! Um, I booked online.

  • Rachel Smith.

  • And then about an hour after I booked, I booked an upgrade.

  • I used the termupgrade’.

  • This means to improve on something.

  • To get a higher quality.

  • For example, if youve had your cell phone for a while, and it’s a bit slow, you might want to get an upgrade.

  • Here, I'm using it as a noun.

  • On a flight, you might be upgraded from an economy to a first class seat.

  • Here, I'm using it as a verb.

  • Upgrade.

  • In this case, I booked a hotel room, and then the system asked me if I wanted to upgrade.

  • The offer seemed like a good deal to me, so I did upgrade.

  • A paid a bit more money for a bigger, better room.

  • And then about an hour after I booked, I booked an upgrade.

  • Because it sounded very enticing, what was being offered.

  • Do you see how pregnant I am here?

  • I’m 8 months pregnant, and this was the last weekend that my doctor said I could travel away from home.

  • So we took Stoney to my in-laws, that is, David’s parents, and took this short trip.

  • In the US, you might hear people call this a babymoon.

  • That is, a relaxing trip you take before before it’s harder to travel because you have a baby.

  • This is related to the termhoneymoon’,

  • which is a trip you take alone with your partner right after you get married.

  • You booked for a water-view, de luxe king, correct? Yes. South-facing.

  • Here, were using some terms that you might use when describing a room.

  • We booked a king, which means it has a king-sized bed in it.

  • King and California King are the two largest-sized beds.

  • She used the term water-view.

  • This simply means what you can see from your room.

  • You might have city-view, park-view, water-view, ocean-view, garden-view, street-view.

  • This hotel is close to the Hudson River.

  • I used the termsouth-facing’.

  • This means when youre in your room looking out the window, which direction are you looking?

  • I knew I wanted to be south-facing because just north of the hotel are some taller buildings.

  • I didn’t want to look directly at another building, so I upgraded to a south-facing room.

  • You might also see a room described as a corner room,

  • which of course means youre on the corner of the building,

  • and you might get views in two different directions.

  • - You booked for a water-view, de luxe king, correct? - Yes. South-facing.

  • If I could just see a form of ID and a credit card for the reservation.

  • Sure.

  • When checking into a hotel, there’s a good chance that theyll ask for a form of ID, like she did.

  • That would be something official with your picture and name on it, like a driver’s license or passport.

  • ID is short foridentification.’

  • Theyll also usually want a credit card from you

  • so they can make charges to the room if you damage or take anything.

  • If I could just see a form of ID and a credit card for the reservation.

  • Sure.

  • So I see that initially, you kind of deposit down for the room so we would just need the card for incidentals.

  • Okay, no problem.

  • Incidentals.

  • This is the word they use for anything in addition to the cost of the room.

  • For example, if you eat or drink from the mini-bar in your room,

  • they will keep track of that and charge it to your card after you leave.

  • - so we would just need the card for incidentals. - Okay, no problem.

  • - And it doesn't...it's not ready yet by chance, is it? - It is!

  • Oh, perfect!

  • She asks, “have you stayed here before?”

  • Oh, no. I've not. It's been on my bucket list.

  • Bucket list.

  • Have you heard this term before?

  • It means something you want to do within your lifetime.

  • For example, visiting Paris is on my bucket list.

  • Oh, no. I've not. It's been on my bucket list. So I'm glad that it's happening.

  • Yes.

  • This initial here, here, and a signature there.

  • And if you can just add this gentleman's name right there.

  • Sure.

  • There might be something you have to initial or sign when checking into a hotel.

  • Initial, of course, means you just put RS instead of your whole signature, Rachel Smith.

  • This initial here, here, and a signature there. And if you can just add this gentleman's name right there.

  • Sure.

  • We finish checking in and head up to our room.

  • Room number 814, we have a card as a key.

  • Very dark elevator.

  • So this is why I don't want to be north-facing. It's because then you're just looking at a building.

  • North-facing, south-facing.

  • It can be very handy to know the details of the room you want when booking a hotel.

  • Let’s go find the room.

  • There's the river.

  • And there's the city.

  • And there's The High Line.

  • How cool is that?

  • The Highline is a park in NYC that was built on top of an abandoned raised train line.

  • I’ll also talk about The Whitney, which is an art museum.

  • That's The Whitney, right there.

  • Have you ever been to The Whitney, David? The new one?

  • Yeah.

  • And that's the little rooftop spot there.

  • Maybe we'll...maybe we should go. They have um,

  • pay-as-you-wish entrance on Friday evenings.

  • Alright, well, let's settle in.

  • Settle inis a phrase that means to unpack, to get comfortable, to arrange your things in a new place.

  • After a big move, it can take some time to settle in.

  • Whenever we stay somewhere, even if it’s just for a night or two,

  • I like to spend some time settling in when we first arrive to make the stay more comfortable.

  • Alright, well, let's settle in.

  • That night, our friend Renee dropped by and we ordered room service.

  • Generally you can reach the front desk by pressing 0.

  • The front desk is there in the lobby, where we checked in.

  • You call them with all your needs and questions.

  • Room service is for the restaurant in the hotel that can make and bring food to your room.

  • Hi! Is this where I call to place a room service order?

  • Thank you.

  • It was the front desk, not room service.

  • Thank you for calling room service. How can I help you?

  • Hi! I'm in room 814.

  • And I'd like to order two orders of fries and does that come with ketchup?

  • - Yeah! - Okay.

  • And also, two orders of a good pickle.

  • Okay.

  • Do you want anything to drink with that?

  • Um, anyone thirsty?

  • No. I think we're good.

  • If you ask someone if they want something, or offer them something, and they say “I’m goodorwere good”,

  • that’s like sayingno thank you.” That person does not want it.

  • Anyone thirsty?

  • No. I think we're good.

  • They told me it would be a 30-minute wait.

  • Okay, I am 8 months pregnant, if that helps boost me forward.

  • Okay, not a problem.

  • Okay, I'm just kidding. Thank you!

  • Bye!

  • I mean I'm not kidding. I am 8 months pregnant, if that makes a difference.

  • Luckily, the food came quickly.

  • - Wow. That's a lot of fries. - That is a lot of fries.

  • Ooh. I didn't expect them to be so little.

  • I think we could've gotten by with one order.

  • Nope.

  • No?

  • No. I'm so glad we have two.

  • Mini mayonaise.

  • All the best to go with the mini ketchup.

  • Mini ketchup.

  • And then 2 good pickles.

  • Okay, what did you think of yours?

  • I give it an 8 out of 10.

  • - I think I'm going to give it a 6 or 7 out of 10. - Oh, so low.

  • Do you do this too?

  • We rated how much we liked the pickle on a scale of 1-10.

  • 1 is always the lowest, and 10 the highest, the very best of the best.

  • So I didn’t love the pickle.

  • Still, there’s something very luxurious about eating French fries in your hotel room at 10:30 at night.

  • Many hotels have an ice machine.

  • This one was labeled an ice dispenser.

  • So almost every hotel room in America has an ice bucket that you can take to the machine to fill up.

  • This one also had tongs to serve ice into glasses.

  • David and I had such a relaxing stay here enjoying slow days.

  • Before we leave,

  • let’s go over a few more words and phrases that might be useful to you as you travel, as you stay in hotels.

  • First, when you check into a hotel, you will find the front desk in the lobby,

  • and you can probably find a luggage cart there to help you get all your luggage to your room.

  • The opposite of checking in is checking out.

  • Check out, of course, is when you leave the hotel room and you give back your key.

  • Two phrasal verbs for your travel vocabulary: check in, check out.

  • Here, I called the front desk to ask what time check out was.

  • I also had to report an issue about the room.

  • Hi Freddie! I am wondering what time check out is tomorrow morning?

  • It is 12 pm.

  • Okay, perfect.

  • Uh, my other question is I'm in room 814 and the drain to the bathtub doesn't seem to close all the way.

  • That's great! We're actually going to head out in a minute. Is it okay if we're not here?

  • Okay, thank you so much.

  • I used the phrasal verbhead out’.

  • This means to leave.

  • We were just getting ready to leave our room for a walk.

  • Head out.

  • That's great! We're actually going to head out in a minute. Is it okay if we're not here?

  • Okay, thank you so much.

  • We don't even need to try to get a late check out 'cause check out's noon. It's perfect.

  • This particular hotel does have a mini bar.

  • So that is place where they're going to have some food and snacks for you.

  • They have some glasses for us, nice.

  • And there's also a refrigerator.

  • Mini-bar usually refers to refrigerator.

  • refrigerator.

  • And this one is fully stocked so that means it came with all sorts of goodies ready for us.

  • Now, usually, if you eat or drink what comes here in hotel, it's quite expensive.

  • Much more expensive that just running out and buying it yourself.

  • Another neat thing that this particular hotel room has is a shower bathroom.

  • So it's this whole room, floor, ceiling, it doesn't matter if they get the whole thing wet,

  • a big bath tub, and then there are some slats that look out into the room so you can still see the view

  • as you take your shower.

  • This hotel room also has a safe.

  • Many, many hotel rooms do so you can put passports or money, valuables, whatever, in this safe when you leave.

  • One thing that people are often interested in when choosing a hotel is the list of amenities.

  • Amenities would be things like a gym or a pool or room service.

  • Other things that you get in addition to your room or special things that you might get in your room.

  • Many hotels come with a little card like this.

  • This one says 'Privacy Please'

  • and you hang this on your door knob to let them know: I don't want anyone to come in and work on my room.

  • Or on the other side: I do want someone to come in, change out my towels for clean towels, maybe vacuum.

  • So this card says "Privacy Please" but you might also see "Do Not Disturb".

  • Thank you guys for traveling with me to New York city this weekend.

  • I also have a video that I made on travel phrases that you may use when checking in at an airport.

  • Be sure to check that out.

  • Are there other travel vocabularies or phrases videos that you'd like to see?
