So you’re going to the Hills District of Sydney. You’ve picked this destination and now you need to select a hotel. Ten years back, you ‘d have most likely visited your local travel agent and trusted the in person recommendations you were given by the so-called ‘experts’. The 21st Century way to pick and book your hotel is of course on the Internet, by utilizing travel sites.
But how do you sort through the remarkable choices available? And more importantly, do you actually rely on the photographs and descriptions of the hotels that they have granted themselves with the motivation of getting reservations?
Traveler reviews can be practical, but you need to exercise caution. They are often biased, often out of date, and might not serve your interests at all. How do you understand that the features that are necessary to the customer are necessary to you? Then there’s the issue of the customer’s motivation. The more reviews you read, the more you observe how they tend to cluster at the extremes of opinion. On one end, you have angry reviewers with axes to grind; at the other, you have thrilled guests who lavish appreciation beyond belief.
You’ll not be shocked to learn that hotels often publish their own glowing reviews or that competitor’s line up for the chance to lambaste the competition with bad reviews. It makes good sense to consider what is actually important to you when choosing a hotel. You should then select an online hotel directory that gives current, independent, unbiased information that really matters.
Here are some of the key realities you should keep in mind:
1. Location: if it matters that your hotel is, for instance, close to the amusement park, or convenient for the airport, then location is vital. Any decent directory should offer a location map of the hotel and its surroundings. There should be distance charts to the airport provided in addition to some type of an interactive map.
2. Style: it is important to select a hotel that makes you feel comfy – modern or standard furnishings, local design or international, official or relaxed. The ideal hotel directory should let you understand of the options available.
3. Restaurants, Coffee Shops, and Bars: local color is fantastic but the hotel’s own restaurants and bars can play a vital part in your stay. You should be aware of choice, style and whether they are clever or casual. A great hotel report should tell you this, and particularly about breakfast facilities.
4. Bedroom Facilities: you should constantly carefully consider the kind of facilities you need from your bedroom and find a hotel that has those you consider important. The hotel directory should elaborate on matters such as bed size, Internet Access (its cost, whether there is WIFI or wired broadband connection), Complimentary features, views from the room and luxury offerings like a Pillow menu or Bath menu, choice of smoking or non-smoking spaces, etc
. These things actually do matter and any decent hotel directory should give you this sort of recommendations on bedrooms – not just the number of spaces which is the typical choice!
5. Children’s’ Facilities: more important to the family tourist than business tourist. You should learn just how child-friendly the hotel is from the directory and make your decision from there. Something worth looking for is whether the hotel offers a baby sitter service. For business tourist wanting to leave children, this is of course very pertinent too – possibly a hotel that is not child-friendly would be something more appropriate!
6. Leisure Facilities: the site should offer a comprehensive analysis of leisure services within the hotel – spa, pool, gym, sauna – in addition to details of any other facilities nearby such as golf courses.
7. Special Needs: the hotel directory site should advise the visitor of each hotel’s special needs services and accessibility policy. Whilst again this does not apply to every visitor, it is absolutely essential to some.
Lastly and most importantly, the quality hotel directory assessment team should have gone to the hotel in question on a regular basis, met the staff, slept in a bedroom and tasted the food. They should experience the hotel as only a hotel guest can and it is only then that they are actually in a strong position to write about the hotel.
with the above details, there is no reason why you shouldn’t find the very best hotel in the Hills District of Sydney. Good luck!
