A guy named Rick Klau posted a classic hotel guestroom hack: Use the clips of the pants/skirt hanger in the room to pinch the blackout drapes closed.

People chimed in with their own hacks. Some of the most popular were suggestions to use the ironing board as an extension of the desk or dresser, wrap the remote in the shower cap to avoid germs, and drape a towel over the PTAC to avoid it blowing directly on you overnight.
