BELLEVUE, WA – The results of the inaugural Expedia 2015 Hotel Etiquette Study, which asked 1,022 Americans to rank the frustrating, sneaky, sometimes quirky behavior exhibited by their fellow hotel guests, were released today.

The full list of hotel etiquette violations, from most to least annoying, follows:

1. Inattentive Parents โ€“ 67%
2. The Hallway Hellraisers โ€“ 64%
3. The Complainers โ€“ 54%
