How to get the best hotel stay

Posted on November 14, 2021 at 5:50 AM Comments comments (0)


How to get the best hotel. A great highlight of any vacation is staying in a luxurious hotel. There are a lot of people that will pass on this option and stay in an economy room because of the potential cost of a luxury hotel. But with some work, research and planning you can get one of these upgraded hotel rooms at a price that will not break your budget.

Right Time

It does not matter what hotel you are looking at, weekends are the busiest time of the week. Try to get a hotel during the week because they will cost much less than those during the weekend. Find out the least busiest time of the year for the hotel that you are going to stay at. Figuring that out will give an opportunity to get the best possible price available to you so that the hotel has as few empty rooms as possible.



Like before, always check any membership club that you have signed up for. Are you a Veteran or Active Duty? Are you a senior of disabled? There can be extra discounts that can be used if you have access to them. Contact the Hotel and find out it they have any current promotions, ask them while they are on the phone what the lowest price they can offer for a stay. Now go online and compare the prices quoted and see if they can be beat or if it is the best you can get.
