What To Look For In A Hotel For A Great Experience There

by Jordan Marshall

You may be looking into finding the right hotel in your vacation destination that is centrally located and offers great deals for you and your family. If you are looking for a great hotel experience and to also enjoy your downtime time there and not just the destination itself, there are some things you can look for to find a great hotel experience.

Hotels are always trying to come up with new ways to be innovative and creative to keep their guests happy and coming back again. Here are some things to look for in a hotel for a great experience there.

They Will Personalize Your Stay

When you look for hotels in your vacation destination, look for ones that go above and beyond to make your stay personalized. This means when you book your room, they may ask you different questions about what you are interested in and what you expect out of your stay. Or if you are booking it yourself via an online portal or travel agent, the booking system could ask personalized questions to better understand your needs and what you want out of your stay.

The hotel staff then can give you a more personalized experience. For example, you might find small gifts in your room, a welcome brunch with your favorite foods, and even suggestions for excursions you might be interested in.

They Offer Amenities And Services For Free

Some hotels will offer little extras like laundry service or daycare, but oftentimes you have to pay for these extras. This isn't always the case. You can look for a hotel in your vacation destination that offers plenty of amenities or services for free.

You could find you can have a complimentary haircut at the onsite salon if you stay in an upgraded room. The hotel may offer laundry services for free and many hotels offer free WiFi or even stream movies and games free to your room to enjoy.

It may also be possible to enjoy a game of golf, late check-out, and more.

Rewards For Returning Guests

If you are a fairly frequent traveler or perhaps you travel for work and must find a hotel in whatever city you travel to, many hotels, even those outside of chain hotels now offer rewards for returning guests. They want to retain their guests and have them come back so many will offer perks to keep you coming back.

It's possible to earn a free night or even a free weekend if you are a frequent guest. Free drinks at the bar or a free meal at the restaurant may also be offered. They can offer vouchers to nearby attractions or events such as a musical theater performance or concert, and more.
