Choosing a hotel is not always as simple as it seems but it matters that you make the right choice in the end as it is an integral part of your holiday experience.
Here are some pointers on how to filter your selection process and find the hotel that best matches what you want, so that you can relax and enjoy planning the rest of your vacation.
Ask yourself a few questions
If you have already decided on a specific destination for your trip that is a good starting point and the next step is to ask yourself a few relevant questions about your hotel requirements so that you can narrow things down a bit.
Decide what is most important to you. Is budget the primary issue or is location more important?
Knowing what matters most to you is going to help you narrow down your choices of hotel and if you are traveling with kids and want a pool to enjoy, this is also a big factor that you need to include in your search filter.
It is very easy to be driven by price and most of the major comparison sites will allow you to sort your hotel choices into an order of the most to least expensive.
Try not to limit yourself to just the major booking sites as they don’t always offer the widest choice or even the best prices available.
If you have found a hotel like the Habtoor Grand Resort, for instance, it is always worth checking their site directly, or calling them, to see if there are any special deals or discounts available that aren’t being shown elsewhere.
Hotels will most likely be paying a commission to booking sites for your business so it makes sense to do some window-shopping online and then confirm whether you can beat the price by going direct.
The location of your hotel can definitely make a difference to your vacation experience and if you are dictated by price alone and disregard location it could be a decision you end up regretting.
Being close to amenities and having what you want on your doorstep is often worth paying a bit extra for so make sure you look at a map and check the location of your accommodation before you finalize your booking.
One of the worst things to do is book a hotel that isn’t geared up to meeting your needs or aimed at your demographic.
If you are going on a family vacation you want so assurance that the hotel has a family-friendly policy and is going to be welcoming you with open arms and a cheery smile.
You can often see feedback that tells you how other families have been welcomed at the hotel before and the hotel itself might also want to announce the type of guest that they are looking to attract.
What you don’t want to do is spend a week in a hotel where you can’t relax because you feel out of place.
Trying to choose the right hotel can be a bit daunting but by asking the right questions before you book you will be improving your chances of getting exactly what you want at the right price.
