Hotel Tips for Summer Travel

As the song goes, it’s “summer, summer, summer time!” and you’ll be travelling to attend family reunions, birthday celebrations, weddings or just getting some R&R at a vacation destination.  So, what do you look for in a hotel? Is it the price or the value? Is it the amenities they offer? Is extraordinary guest service important to you? Here are some of our best tips when looking for a hotel this summer.

The Hotel Room

As you check out the photos online of the hotel you’re considering, the first thing to take into consideration is the size of the hotel room. Is it spacious? There’s nothing worse than being in a small hotel room when you’re paying a premium price and have the kids in tow. Also, what amenities are included and will you have all of the comforts of home like a flat screen TV for him with HD channels and a make-up mirror in the bathroom for her. What about the bedding?  Is it white?  White linen is used by many upscale hotel resorts and is most likely to be freshly laundered upon your arrival…or you’ll know instantly. 

Transportation Options

Whether you’re staying in the suburbs of Las Vegas or right in Manhattan, make sure you have transportation options. Those options could be taxi cab, a sedan or limo, or the hotel’s complimentary shuttle or even the city bus. You may also want to find out if you can rent a car after you’ve arrived at your hotel. If not, you may want to make arrangements to rent a car from the airport.

Resort Fees

Resort fees have become a dreaded term in the travel industry. Find out ahead of time if your hotel charges a resort fee. If they do, what does it include and how much is it? If the amenities included are things you’ll definitely use throughout your stay such as Wi-Fi or daily access to the fitness center, then it might be a good value. But, if it’s a fee that includes printing your boarding pass and access to the hotel pool, than you might want to reconsider it. Very often, major resort chains offer these amenities as complimentaries to their guests.
