Choosing a hotel for business or vacation is a big deal. You want the best place you can get, no one will get stuck in a dirty outline where you can not find it safe to even sit on the bed, let alone get into it. But how do you know which hotel is a good hotel? It's not just about the size of the room or how big the towels are, but instead, most people agree that these are the little things that make a hotel feel like home.
If the hotel staff is helpful and friendly and shows a lot of hospitality, you know you are in the right place. Of course, the lobby is well-lit and clean, as this is a precursor to the coming things. If you can check in without a hitch and your key card actually works for your room, you are in business. Careless check-in and key cards that just do not allow you to get into your room, the pool, the gym, etc. Is just not good enough today and age.
Next is location. If you go on holiday to a particular place, like an amusement park or a monument, you will have a hotel that is close enough so you do not travel for hours when you arrive at your destination. Fortunately, with the internet, you can look at where hotels are relative to where you want to go before you leave home.
And then there are the facilities, the things that make your stay more enjoyable and more like home. We speak comfortable, clean beds, plenty of good things in the bathroom to use, a good amount of towels for coffee and tea, clean glasses and cups, decent television and free WiFi. An in-room microwave and refrigerator are also good amenities, especially if you travel with children, but it's also nice to store and reheat your dinner breaks later when you are beautiful.
With online reviews you can get a pretty decent picture of most hotels in your list. And with so much competition, chains strive to be bigger and better than their competitors down the street, which are just good news for us, the travelers and those who actually live in the rooms.
Another good thing to look for is the perks of hotels provide for repeat guests. Play your cards right and you can only have a free evening!
