traveling on vacation, where you stay can have a major effect on your overall
experience. This doesn’t mean that you always have to overspend on a hotel. It
means you need to make a few wise choices when making a selection.
Here are a few tips in selecting the perfect hotel for a trip:
1. Location, Location, and Location:
As with purchasing real estate, the location of your hotel should be high on
your list of priorities. Consider its access to transportation, its distance from
the sites you want to visit, etc.
2. Amenities: Even if you plan on
spending a minimum amount of time in the hotel, the amenities will have effect
on your overall experience.
Things to consider:
·Does it have a pool?
·Does it provide Wi-Fi, and is there a charge?
·Is there a charge to make local phone calls?
·Does it provide airport or local transportation?
Sometimes the cheapest hotel can end up being the most expensive.
3. Ambiance: When selecting a hotel, decide if
you want an upscale hotel, or one with local flavor, or if you are willing to
settle for something basic.
4. Loyalty Programs and Frequent Flier
Miles: Some hotels offer points for their own programs, or airline points.
Consider this when making a decision.
