Travels: Hotels

When deciding on a hotel for your vacation, how do you know which one to pick?

Here are some things to think about.

Where is the hotel located. Look at the map and then look at Google Street View. It's amazing what you see, that the hotel website might not show you. Is that really a train track running directly behind the hotel?

Read the reviews. Look at the positive ones and the negative ones. Are the negative ones just moaning and groaning or are there real concerns that keep popping up in reviews? Perhaps you'll learn some great services offered by reading a positive review.

If you need an airport shuttle, see if the hotel has one and what times it runs. If you aren't sure, contact the hotel.

Do you have to pay for parking if you are driving? How much is it?

Understand what services are actually free and what are not. If Wi-Fi is listed as available, you might want to check to see if there is a charge. 

If you can't find something on the hotel website or if you have a question, don't be afraid to contact the hotel directly.
