When you enter a hotel room, strip the comforter from the bed and toss it behind the door. Drop the remote into a plastic bag. Spray the bathroom with disinfectant spray. Spray a hand cloth with disinfectant spray and wipe the tv control buttons and lamp and light switches. Those are the objects you come in contact with most in a hotel environment.
