Once you figure out where you want to visit, the next step is finding the perfect hotel to stay at. Hotels can make or break your vacation and with so many to choose between, it can be overwhelming to figure out which is best for you. Next time you book hotels, here’s what you should keep in mind to get the best hotel room.

Know What’s Important to You

Before you even look for hotels online, make a list of what’s important to you. That could be free breakfast, a good night’s sleep, a room with a view, a pool, or a gym. Then you can narrow down your options based on filters, which makes finding what you want much easier.

Determine the Hotel’s Exact Location

When it comes to traveling, location is really important as you want to be within close distance of the city’s attractions. Go beyond the website’s description which may say attractions are easy to reach, but sometimes they mean they’re close to a bus or metro. Before booking, check a map to see the exact location of the hotel and if there are attractions, dining, and shopping nearby.

Read Reviews

It’s always a good idea to read reviews on Google,, or TripAdvisor, but when you do, make sure they’re from the past year or so. In addition to reviews, look for pictures from guests to get a better idea of the property.
