So you’re going to the Hills District of Sydney. You’ve chosen this destination and now you have to pick a hotel. 10 years back, you ‘d have probably visited your local travel representative 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 obviously on the Internet, by using travel websites.
But how do you sift through the incredible choices on offer? And more importantly, do you truly trust the photos and descriptions of the hotels that they have awarded themselves with the inspiration of getting reservations?
Traveler reviews can be helpful, but you need to exercise care. They are often prejudiced, in some cases out of date, and might not serve your interests at all. How do you understand that the features that are very important to the reviewer are very important to you? Then there’s the problem of the reviewer’s inspiration. The more reviews you check out, the more you notice how they tend to cluster at the extremes of viewpoint. On one end, you have angry reviewers with axes to grind; at the other, you have happy guests who lavish appreciation beyond belief.
You’ll not be amazed to learn that hotels in some cases post their own radiant reviews or that rival’s line up for the chance to lambaste the competition with bad reviews. It makes sense to consider what is truly important to you when choosing a hotel. You should then pick an online hotel directory site that offers updated, independent, neutral info that truly matters.
Here are some of the key realities you should remember:
1. Location: if it matters that your hotel is, for instance, close to the theme park, or convenient for the airport, then location is paramount. Any decent directory site should offer a location map of the hotel and its environs. There should be distance charts to the airport provided in addition to some type of an interactive map.
2. Style: it is important to pick a hotel that makes you feel comfortable – contemporary or standard furnishings, local design or international, official or relaxed. The ideal hotel directory site should let you understand of the options offered.
3. Restaurants, Cafes, and Bars: local color is great 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 or not they are smart or informal. A great hotel report should tell you this, and especially about breakfast facilities.
4. Bedroom Facilities: you should constantly thoroughly consider the type of facilities you need from your bedroom and find a hotel that has those you consider important. The hotel directory site should elaborate on matters such as bed size, Internet Access (its cost, whether there is WIFI or wired broadband connection), Complimentary amenities, views from the room and high-end offerings like a Pillow menu or Bath menu, choice of smoking cigarettes or non-smoking rooms, etc
. These things truly do matter and any decent hotel directory site should offer you this sort of recommendations on bed rooms – not just the variety of rooms which is the typical alternative!
5. Children’s’ Facilities: more crucial to the household traveler than the business traveler. You should learn just how child-friendly the hotel is from the directory site and make your decision from there. Something worth looking for is whether the hotel offers a baby sitter service. For the business traveler wishing to leave children, this is obviously extremely appropriate too – perhaps 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, swimming pool, gym, sauna – in addition to details of any other facilities nearby such as golf courses.
7. Special Needs: the hotel directory site should recommend the visitor of each hotel’s special needs services and accessibility policy. Whilst again this does not apply to every visitor, it is absolutely important to some.
Lastly and most notably, the quality hotel directory site assessment team should have gone to the hotel in question regularly, met the personnel, slept in a bedroom and tasted the food. They should experience the hotel as only a hotel visitor can and it is only then that they are truly in a strong position to blog about the hotel.
with the above details, there is no reason why you should not find the very best hotel in the Hills District of Sydney. Best of luck!
