The Secret To Finding The Best Lodging Might Surprise You

Everyone is always to gain the upper hand on everything around them in the hopes of acquiring, or experiencing, the so-called 'best'. The travel industry is no stranger to this, and for years, travelers of all kinds have done all they can to get the best lodging possible everywhere they go. The biggest problem with trying to get 'the best' of anything is trying to have an actual working definition of what that would be.

Going back to the issue of the 'best' lodging, it would seem that on the surface, being able to get the quintessential hotel room booked would be pretty easy to determine who won out on finding the best lodging possible. There's just one problem - hotels are not the only form of lodging available to travelers. It's an unending argument that does nothing more than spoil any good time you try to have while traveling because you are too busy trying to determine your level of awesomeness to others in a contest no one is having or cares about.

However, maybe you're still stuck on finding the 'best' lodging, and you really want to some inside intel on making it happen. The secret to finding the best lodging is... well, there is no secret. That's the kicker in all of this. Finding the best place to stay when you travel doesn't actually require a secret at all.

Here's all you need to get tremendous value on lodging for your next trip:

Compare Rates and Deals from Various Websites - This requires a bit of work on your part, but comparing the prices of lodging deals from one website to another may actually get you some pretty serious savings. Some websites have emerged in the last few years that actually make the comparisons for you, but there's nothing like putting in the work yourself.

Try Waiting Until the Last-Minute - Finding a place to stay when you travel can be necessary all of a sudden, with only a few hours notice. That said, there are a lot of great websites and apps that work for you in these situations. Moreover, even if you're actively choosing to wait for a deal, you still have tools at your disposal.

Consider Alternative Lodging Options - Vacation rentals, condos, hostels, and even privately rented rooms are all options depending on your needs & whether you're traveling alone, for work, or with your family.

Negotiate with the Hotel Directly - Go old-school and call the hotel you'd like to stay at & see if they can do some price-matching with deals you've found. This direct approach is championed by travel gurus as a highly successful way to score savings.

Lodging is really about what will make you feel the most comfortable when you travel. It's not about 'the best' of anything. So long as you have a firm understanding of the amenities you want versus those you need, it stands to reason you'll easily find the perfect place to call your "home away from home" on your next adventure out of town.

Hostels – The New Cheap Hotels?


     

Hostels have long been the “dirty” word in the hotel and travel industry, but times are certainly changing for the better as the public realize more and more that hostels and youth hostels are a viable means of accommodation when they travel around the globe.

Despite their low price and somewhat bad reputation, many hostels are of a high standard and have great facilities for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy.

The budget travel sector, such as backpackers, gap year travelers and also families wanting multi-location holidays, has boomed in the last few years and is driven to a large extent by word-of-mouth recommendation.

With competition in the industry “hotting up” and with millions of customers each and every year choosing cheaper, cost-effective accommodation, the standard, and reputation of these places are ever-increasing.

The major hostel booking companies also have rating systems which, not only helps customers to choose the right accommodation but also helps to push hostel owners to do more to satisfy their customers as their ratings directly affect how much business they will receive from these booking sites.

The most popular hostel destinations are Singapore, London, Sydney, Rome, Amsterdam and New York and no matter where in the world you are traveling to, you will find a selection of great accommodation to suit both your taste and your budget.

Despite the arrival of budget hotel chains such as Travelodge, Ibis and Jury’s Inns, Hotel 81 chains in Singapore, backpackers still prefer to stay in hostels due to factors such as atmosphere, fun and the social experience of meeting other backpackers.

The hostel industry, once considered a “cottage industry” has now grown rapidly with the entry of new players opening deluxe hostel chains including The Generator, and Hostels in London.

If you are planning to stay in a Hostel in Singapore, make sure you look through our Singapore Hostels Reviews by our editors.

Hotel Marriot ----What I really liked about the room was the huge Jacuzzi tub that you could lay down in. That is the ultimate pleasure! There are several restaurants presently at the JW Marriott. The pool is one of the best features at the JW Marriott. It offers a serene environment to host board meetings or romantic weddings, receptions and social affairs. Wedding parties have the opportunity to select a venue sited for rehearsal dinners, bridesmaid's brunches or evening parties when staying at the Marriott.
