Hotels are the most preferred accommodation option for tourists and business people. Most hotels are conveniently located in major towns and around tourist sites. In this extract, you will learn a few tips and tricks that can significantly improve your hotel stay.
The primary benefit of an early booking is that it enables you to take advantage of discounts. For example, most hotels will have different rates for the weekdays and weekends. More often than not, you will pay less if you book a weekend stay during the weekday. You should also check the hotel's website to know whether you qualify for additional discounts. For example, some hotels will give discounts to referrals. You will get loyalty points if you are a return customer. Redeem these points for discounts, free services or rooms.
Choosing A Room
Most people do not have an idea of how to choose a hotel room. Below are some tips to help you choose a hotel room.
- Inquire about the size of the room. Large rooms are ideal for couples or people that intend to share the room with their kids.
- Check the location of the room. Corner rooms may have balconies where you can relax and enjoy the view. You could also go for rooms facing the sea, sunrise or the city.
- Check the available amenities. For instance, some business suites will have a lounge where you can entertain guests or hold a meeting. Some rooms will also have safes where you can put your valuables.
- The room should have adequate safety features. For example, the locks must be functional. Smoke detectors and sprinklers will alert you in case of a fire.
Check Extra Services
Remember to check the extra services provided by the hotel. For example, some hotels will offer airport transportation. Besides, they may have guest car hire and chauffeur services. These services are often cheaper than what local businesses provide. The hotel should also have Wi-Fi and cable TV.
Go for hotels that incorporate sustainable practices in their business operations. For example, some hotels have sustainable designs such as double-glazed windows, insulation and skylights. Besides, they could reduce the number of times that they clean your room and laundry if you intend to stay for an extended period. Others will go the extra mile and engage the local community in their operations. For example, locals could be asked to act as guides for guests touring the area.
Get the most out of your hotel by making an early booking, choosing an appropriate room, examining extra services and incorporating sustainable practices.
