A wake-up call (alarm call in the UK) is a service provided by most lodging establishments to provide a service similar to alarm clocks via a telephone.

The phrase has been used to describe a sign or warning that alerts one to negative or dangerous behavior or circumstances.[1] In east Asia, a wake-up call is commonly known as a "morning call."
