As you plan your summer vacation, hotels are the latest in the list of people to book. This is not a good idea, especially if you are traveling with a family, as good hotels are first booked. You may get stuck in a well-managed hotel.
Summer is the busiest holiday season in the United States, and I felt you had some tips for booking a hotel for your summer vacation.
Many tourists are looking for newer, more luxurious hotels, while some traditional hotels with a good record of customer service are available at a lower price. Recently I helped a client with a 100 year experience at a hotel in Los Angeles. Price was 25% lower than newer hotel. She thoroughly enjoyed her stay and told me that the staff told her many interesting stories from past celebrities.
Hotels near popular tourist destinations are always more expensive and crowded. I recently went to Las Vegas on a family vacation, booking a hotel half a mile away from the famous bar but much easier, cheaper and more convenient. We didn't have to face drunk couples who were depressed by casino losses.
Weekend rates are cheaper than day rates in hotels. This is because many travelers book travel trips for business trips on weekdays. Hotels, on the other hand, are more likely to market their property to everyday business travelers. If you want to save money, it's always best to book hotels for the end of the week.
If you book a hotel in your package, you may be able to save money on travel services such as GetUSAHotels to get great discounts on package sales. Do your math and if you feel you can get a better hotel with the same price then it is a good price.
There are no specific travel saving formulas, but a little effort can make your trip enjoyable, comfortable and economical.
