Hotel Advice: Figuring Out Where To Stay

Where to stay hotel advice

Figuring out where to stay is one of the most time-consuming and important parts of planning any vacation. Here is some hotel advice and what to look for when making the decision of where to stay on your next trip.

  1. Location- This is the most important part of deciding where to stay.  It is never fun to spend most of your vacation traveling long distances to get to the sights that you want to see.  It’s also important to be in a safe location even if it means spending a little extra. Being in an area with good restaurants and entertainment will also help make your vacation even more enjoyable.
  2. Amenities- Decide what is important to you.  Do you like having a restaurant inside the hotel, so that you don’t always have to leave to go find something to eat? Is room service important to you?  Do you like having a fitness center in the hotel so that you can work out?  Is having wi-fi or cable TV a must?  Make sure that the hotel you are looking at has the services that you want before booking the first hotel you see.
  3. A Good Price- Yes, we all want to find a good price on the hotel we are staying at.  I like to stay in hotels that let me earn rewards points that I can redeem for other services such as free flights or hotel rooms later.  I appreciate when my loyalty for staying in a certain hotel is rewarded.  I also make sure that the hotel has all of the qualities that I’m looking for. The cheapest price doesn’t always mean the best value. Remember that with many hotels, chances are, the best price can be booked directly on their website.
  4. Good Reviews- The final thing that I look at when booking at a hotel are the reviews. Hotel advice from others always helps me in making my decision. TripAdvisor is a good place to look when deciding where to stay, as are travel blogs. With a travel blog, I like that I am getting the opinion of someone who travels quite frequently and may be more discerning in their taste.

To me, there is nothing more important than a good night’s sleep when I travel, so finding a good hotel is the most important part.  Follow this hotel advice, and it will make your question of where to stay an easy one.
