If you've received your Covid-19 vaccine, vacationing in a fancy hotel room may be at the top of your post-pandemic to-do list. Here's what to pack and what to do for a safe hotel stay.

If you're not traveling alone, "you certainly should not be sharing a hotel room with someone who is not in your immediate household, unless the other person is fully vaccinated," Wen said.
