Check out our tips and tricks for Jane’s Hotel.
It’s a good idea to leave the purchase of plants, couches and tables for as long as you can. There will come a time when you will need those items in order to finish a restaurant and there’s no way around it, you will have to buy them. If you leave these items for last, it will be easier for you to pass the levels that preceded them. For example in the 1st restaurant, you don’t have to buy the plants, newspapers and the telephone until level 10. You will be able to pass levels 1 through 9 without these items. But you will not be able to pass level 10 until you buy everything on the list including the star for the next hotel. You can buy pictures, statues or aquariums as they become available, there’s no work involved in those and they build up the value of the hotel.
You don’t have to collect the money right away you can let it pile up. If you don’t collect the money right away it will not interfere with people checking in or leaving the hotel. The coins will remain on the table until you’re ready to collect all the funds. You can always collect it as soon as you hand out keys or leave it for later. It will not interrupt the flow of things.
If a customer is walking towards the reception desk you can pick up a key and serve another customer. When the person arrives at the reception desk you can still click the key on them and they will get it without Jane walking back towards them. This works as long as Jane is finished whatever duty she was in the middle of doing. You have to click on another item first, deliver it and then click the key on the person that is waiting.
People waiting in line will be short of patience if you keep them waiting too long. By the time they reach you their patience level will be low and you will not gain any extra popularity points by serving them. Try to always keep that line moving all the time. Those points will come in very handy for winning any level.
If you have finished the game and you want to go back and replay a level, you will lose the rest of the levels that came after that. For example, you want to replay level 25, if you do, you will lose all the progress that you’ve made from level 26 to 40.
People always go to the rooms in order from left to right starting with door number one. This is why in the last hotel it is best for you to focus your view so that you can see mainly the left side of the scene. This will make it easier for you as the first few customers come in since you have to scroll back and forth to see the entire lobby. This will allow you to see the requests that come from these rooms while still allowing you to check people in.
Jane can turn on the TV and go to the piano player while having other things in her hand. Just click on the piano or the TV on your way to deliver other things.
When someone is sitting on the couch and the TV icon is over their head, just click on the television itself to turn it on for them (apparently this hotel never heard of a remote control). If the person on couch asks for anything else like coffee or a newspaper you have to click the actual person in order to deliver it, do not click on the TV.
Prioritizing in this game is very important. You have to know what you have to focus your attention on in order to beat a level. There will be some levels in which dry cleaning should have the utmost priority and at other times it will not be as crucial. Watering plants should always be on top of your list because if the plants are not taken care of, it will cost you popularity points. Taking care of the unhappiest customers first is always a priority, you don’t want them to leave without paying.
There will be times when you take care of all the customers and they all leave happy but you’re still not winning the level. This could be caused by a variety of factors. You may not be watering the plants on time, serving customers fast enough or you’re not handing out keys as soon as people arrive. All these things could be causing you not to gain popularity points fast enough or in some cases will make you lose some or all of the points you’ve earned. Pay attention to what you’re doing and try to improve on some of your weaker points.
You can queue a multitude of actions in order for you to get more things done at one time. For example, if you have a several people asking for coffee all you have to do is click on the coffee machine once and then click all the people that are asking for it and Jane will serve everyone in the order that you clicked them. This applies to whether the coffee is requested in a room or out in the lobby. Let’s suppose you’re in the middle of serving 3 people coffee and a fourth person pops up asking for coffee, you can click on them without going back to the coffee machine as long as you have not served the last person of your original order. This works for any service that Jane is performing except for handing out keys.
Some levels are more hectic than others, in order to keep track of things you can click on an array of different things to do at one time. Just click on things for Jane and the maid to do as soon as you see them come up and they will be performed in the order in which they were clicked. You can mix everything up if you want, serve coffee to two people, a newspaper to one and fruit baskets to 3 people. It doesn’t matter how you do it. If you do it as soon as they come up and it will be faster to get things done.
On the rare chance that you have the wrong thing in your hand, you will not be able to perform other tasks until you get rid of it. You will have to wait until someone asks for it, give it to them and then proceed with taking care of everyone else.
You can’t check people in if the rooms have not been vacuumed prior to their arrival. When you see someone walking up to the desk make sure there is a room ready for them or they are going to have to wait until you send the maid to clean the room. You can tell if the rooms are occupied when you see a sign a small sign hanging from the doorknob. The doors of all clean rooms will automatically open once you pick up some keys. If the rooms are not clean you will see the door open with an icon of a vacuum cleaner next to it.
You can have the maid do a multiple of chores at one time to save time. She’s in charge of dry cleaning, watering plants, giving out golf clubs, vacuuming and changing bed linens. Let’s suppose she has to vacuum several rooms and before she finishes, more rooms need vacuuming, you can go ahead and click on those rooms so she can do those jobs after her last one. You will be able to do this as long as she has not gone to the back room, once she’s gone to the back room, you will have to start the queue all over again.
Once the hotel has closed for the day and you don’t have any new customers walking in, you can leave the vacuuming of empty rooms for last. Take care of the people that need vacuuming in occupied rooms first, water the plants and anything else that the maid can do for the current guests. The maid can vacuum all the empty rooms at once when everybody has checked out.
Let’s suppose you clicked on the maid to vacuum but in the meantime the plants have started losing leaves and you need to do that first. You can click on the watering can icon and she will water the plants instead and then you can click on the vacuum icon and the room that needs to be done and she will automatically do that room as soon as she’s finished with the plants. You can only do this if you have not clicked on a particular room at the time that you asked for the vacuum cleaner.
If someone is requesting a service like coffee or a newspaper etc. that particular station will light up indicating that someone is asking for that item. Most of the time when someone comes out of their room, an item will light up before the person actually orders anything. This usually happens when they are coming out of their room and they’re on their way to the lobby, you will see the coffee station, for example, highlighted.
Plants are one of those items that if you don’t take care of them, they will actually make you lose points in the green meter (popularity meter) that is on the right side. Always make sure you click on both plants that need water or one of them will die and cost you points. If the plants die it could cause you to lose that level and you will have to start all over again. You may want to skip purchasing the plants for as long as possible, especially after the third hotel in which you have to keep scrolling in order to see the different sides of the lobby. There will be some levels in which you will be forced to buy the plants, otherwise you will not accumulate enough points to pass the level.
The plants always seem to need watering at the time when the maid is the busiest, always water the plant first that is closest to the back room where the maid comes out of so it will be a shorter walk. You can pretty much anticipate when the plants will need watering: it is usually at the time when you see a lot of vacuuming jobs come up at one time. Just click on 3 vacuuming jobs at a time since you want to be ready for when the plants need water. If before the third job is finished, the plants do not need watering, go ahead and vacuum 2 more rooms and stop what you’re doing as soon as the plants need attention.
You can’t water the plants in advance; you have to wait until you see a few leaves fall on the floor. If the plant starts turning yellow it means that the plant is almost dead and points will be subtracted from the happiness meter, this can take a lot of points off your score.
Customers can sometimes take a while as they walk from the entrance to the front desk. You can save some time by serving someone else as that person is walking to the desk and get back in time to hand out the keys. Keep repeating this pattern of serving other people in between serving keys. This will help raise your popularity points at a much higher rate.
You have to keep the customers happy if you want them to leave bigger tips for every item that you take to them. The best way to do this is to serve them as fast as you can. You will watch the popularity meter go up after you’ve served enough people quickly. For every dollar that that meter goes up is an extra dollar that will be added onto your tip for every service provided. This will be very helpful in the levels where you have to make a lot of money to reach your goal, $20 and $25 at a time per person per service, will add up quickly.
Whenever possible, do things in a particular manner that will keep Jane doing things in one fell swoop in order to save time. Hand out some keys, go the coffee machine and after the coffee machine, go to the restaurant, get some food and go back to the desk and hand out some more keys. This will keep Jane from going back and forth and wasting too much time.
Certain customers are more patient than others. Take care of them first since they are prone to leave if they’re not happy with the service. The business man comes in and you’ll notice that his meter fills up faster than anybody else. When you see him come in take care of him right away. The man in the green shirt is very patient so he will wait a little longer than most customers.
In the last hotel, levels 31-40, you have to keep an eye on both sides of the hotel by scrolling back in forth in order to see everything. You have to pay particular attention to the rooms that are located on each end of the lobby because if you don’t, you will lose those rounds.
Unfortunately in this game you may have to repeat some levels several times in order to meet your goals. You can’t really do a walkthrough for this game because the game changes constantly and there’s no pattern to follow, but there are things that will work no matter what the level throws at you. The two most important things in these levels are speed and keeping the plants watered. Here are a few tips for some specific levels.
Tips for level 25 (providing you have not purchased the linens)
Plants and dry cleaning are of the utmost importance in this level.
Make sure to keep an eye out on the plants and give them water immediately, water them at the first sign of leaves falling. If the plants start dying, you will lose points in the meter and you could go all the way back to zero extra dollars for tips. If that happens you might as well end that round and start again. Just go to the main menu and press the sign that says abort and you will be back at the beginning of that level.
Dry cleaning takes a long time since the maid has to pick up the clothes and then deliver them once they are clean. But it is very important to try and take care of it quickly in this level since a lot of people will get angry and leave if you don’t do it in a timely manner. As a matter of fact, as soon as you see the dry clean icon come up take care of it and then do the other tasks. Once you finish with dry cleaning, let the maid perform the next most urgent task first so that you will not lose any customers.
Pay special attention to the rooms on each end of the lobby, if you leave them for too long, you will lose those customers.
Work fast in order to build your popularity points, hand keys out quickly and never let Jane stand around.
Tips for level 27 (assuming you’ve bought the linens)
Take care of the plants as soon as they need attention.
Dry cleaning is the second most important thing to pay attention to in this level. It takes a long time but if you don’t take care of it, people will be upset and leave. Also your popularity meter will decrease.
Linens are easy to do and are not too time consuming since all she seems to do is drop them at the door and keep going. If there’s only one room that needs linens you can do it right away if it’s close to the back room door where the maid comes out of. when you have time you can knock out all the linen requests at one time.
Buy the pictures at the beginning of this level.
As people are walking towards the counter you can serve someone quickly and go straight back to the reception desk and hand the keys to the next person and continue this cycle until all the rooms are full. Serving customers quickly and handing out keys right away will help you build popularity points faster.
If the doors are closed for the day, you can leave the vacuuming of guests who have checked out for last. Let the maid take care of the guests that are left instead. You can vacuum all the rooms at once, at the end of the level.
Tips for level 32
You need to serve 15 customers to beat this round.
At the beginning of the level move the screen so that the reception desk is all the way to the right side of the screen. This will allow you to focus on the customers that are coming in to the first 5 rooms and still allow you to check people in.
Handing out sheets is a lot faster than dry cleaning so if you have very few sheet requests take care of them quickly and then take care of the dry cleaning.
You have to be really fast in this level and build popularity points quickly at the beginning.
To build popularity points faster do things before the next customer comes in asking for a key. Click on the coffee machine and grab a key, deliver the coffee and click on the customer at the desk and give them the key. Serve the next customer and keep going back to the desk. keep repeating this process until all rooms are full and then take care of as many requests as you can.
If you see that it’s getting closer to the end try to get one more customer in. I wasn’t losing any customers but I was missing the goal by just a few points. I was only getting 14 customers in the door and it wasn’t until I was able to get 15 people in the door that I was able to win the level.
The arrow that indicated that someone is waiting on the other side will stay on even if you’ve already queued all the jobs in that section, just keep checking that side and make sure nothing new is being requested. The arrow is just letting you know that everything has not been done at that moment.
At the end of this level, DO NOT buy the plants, wait until level 35 to buy them
Tips for level 35
You will need to serve at least 20 people in order to beat this round.
Buy the plants at the beginning of the level.
The plants will need watering often and it will most likely be during the times in which you will have a lot requests for vacuuming. Take care of the plants before anything else or you will not pass this level.
The priorities in this level are in this order: plants, dry cleaning, vacuuming and then taking care of the sheets.
Pay attention to the request for the piano player and take care of it as soon as possible.
There will be a lot of requests for the fruit baskets in this level, try to deliver all of them at the same time in order to save time.
Tips for level 40
You have to serve 31 customers in this level in order to meet your goal of 10, 000.
You need to accumulate over 30 popularity points to win this round.
Not paying attention to rooms number 1 and 7 can be detrimental since they are hard to see and sometimes you may forget about them. It will make you dizzy to scroll back and forth quickly but that is what you have to do.
Plants are crucial in this level so keep remembering to check them often and water them as soon as they need it.
Click on things as soon as they become available. You will have several requests at one time and if you click on them as they come up it will make it easier for you in the long run. It doesn’t matter if you split up the orders, just do them as fast as you can.
Don’t let people wait in line too long or you will not gain any popularity points.
