5 Things to Consider Before Booking Your Next Hotel Room

Tuesday, October 18, 2016 | 7:42 pm

When you go to plan a vacation or trip, one important detail you need to decide is where you will be staying. Of course, price is typically the main determining factor, as the hotel rate is going to have to fit into your budget. Yet, when selecting a hotel, this isn’t the only issue you need to look at. Here’s a list of the top things to consider when choosing a hotel!

1. Location – This has a lot to do with why you’re traveling. If it’s for business, for instance, you’re going to want to be located in a convenient area, whereas if you’re planning to sightsee, a hotel that’s centrally located is probably your best bet. And if you just need to relax or get away from it all, you might want to look for something a little more remote or located in a scenic area.

2. Onsite facilities – Depending on what you’re looking for in a hotel, you definitely want to check into what’s located onsite. You may want a pool or a restaurant, or you may be looking for other offerings, such as a spa or a golf course.

3. Complimentary breakfast – This can make a real difference in your budget and should be factored into the overall rate of the hotel. After all, buying breakfast for a family of four over a week’s time can really add up. If the hotel doesn’t offer this amenity, then see if you can request a refrigerator and microwave in the room, so you can make your own breakfast there.

4. Pet-friendliness – If you are bringing the family dog, you want to be careful when choosing your hotel. Of course, the facility needs to accept dogs, but you should also look into whether there are any extra cleaning fees, if they provide a dog run, and if there’s a place to walk the dog nearby.

5. Parking – if you’re arriving by car at your hotel, you’re going to need a place to park. Things to consider here are if the hotel offers parking, how much it charges for that parking, and how secure the parking lot is.
