When you are staying at a hotel, it is a good idea to leave a small tip for the housekeeping staff. It is best to tip daily instead of waiting until the entire trip has come to an end since there is a chance that the same person will not be assisting you every day.

 

To save a little bit of money on the cost of your hotel room, whether you are booking over the phone or online, see if there is a discount for paying at the time of booking rather than waiting to pay at checkout. Often this can make the difference between queen and king beds, or between a room and a suite.

 

Check out priceline.com and other online hotel discount vendors to help you find the best deals out there. These websites can really bring hotel costs down to rock bottom prices. Even upper scale hotels can be found for more affordable prices. There's no reason you should be paying full rate.

 

If you're taking your pet with you, do these things in advance. Make sure the hotel is actually pet-friendly. Gather plastic grocery bags so you are able to clean up any pet messes. Also, request a room away from other guests so that your pet does not bother them.

 

If you plan on bringing your family to a hotel, you should look for family-friendly policies and special deals online. Try using family vacation review sites. You can find many family hotels and resort reviews. Searching through these sites should help you also locate deals to make your trip more enjoyable and affordable.

 

Make location a top priority when it comes to searching for hotels. If you are going to be staying in a city and want to sight-see, it may not be wise to stay in a hotel 30 minutes away from all the action. Ask the hotel about attractions close by or look up their location on the Internet.

 

Do you care about your environment? If so, a "green" hotel may be for you. Fortunately, there are many green hotels available nowadays. Some hotels are certified to be green. Other older hotels will just provide green options for you. Check online or ask a travel agent for help.

 

Don't make long distance calls on your hotel phone. Use the Internet, instead. A lot of hotels offer wi-fi, making it possible for you to use Skype. But the Internet is infinitely useful while traveling so it is usually worth it.

 

Becoming more familiar with what it takes to choose a good hotel will enable you to never have a disappointing night's stay again. If situations do arise, you will know how to handle them. So as you prepare to plan out your next trip, use the tips that you've just read to make the right decision regarding the hotel you choose.
