Staying in a hotel can be enjoyable. The room services, the toiletry, the pool, name them. There are certain things that can help you enjoy more and even reduce the cost for you. These are the things the hotel managements prefer to keep under their hats.
Let’s have a look at these secrets:
It is easy to find discounts on the internet
Most hotels would wish you never browse the internet to find out what you can save compared to what they offer. Visit Kayak.com and other similar websites to see for yourself the rates of different hotels based on how much you are willing to pay and what services you need.
You Might Be Able to Get a Better Rate
Instead of calling the 800 number to make a reservation if you have a specific hotel in mind, you would rather do a little research about their published rates and then call the front desk directly. Ask what they are offering right now and whether they honor discounts like AAA or AARP. And if you are a member of that hotel’s rewards club, don’t forget to mention that. If you are not, ask about signing up to see if that can lower the price further for you.
Take Advantage of Free Amenities
You can take advantage of free amenities like continental breakfast and also check if there are deals to be offered on the rest. But as you do this, watch out for those amenities that are not free, they may add to your total cost.
Your Room may not be as Clean as It Looks
In a hotel room everything is done for you including making your bed and cleaning the bathroom. Remember you are not the only person using the room and the cleaning might not be as perfect as you would do it in your own house. So you need to be cautious while in a hotel room.
Other things the management would want to keep away from you include the fact that your property might not be as safe in the hotel as they want you to believe. Also while in the hotel, don’t believe everything you read, some may just be used to entice you.
