So you’re going to the Hills District of Sydney. You’ve chosen this destination and now you have to pick a hotel. Ten years back, you ‘d have probably visited your local travel agent and trusted the face-to-face recommendations you were offered by the so-called ‘experts’. The 21st Century way to pick and book your hotel is of course on the Internet, by using travel sites.
But how do you sort through the incredible choices on offer? And more importantly, do you truly trust the photographs and descriptions of the hotels that they have awarded themselves with the inspiration of getting bookings?
Traveler reviews can be practical, but you need to exercise caution. They are typically prejudiced, in some cases out of date, and might not serve your interests at all. How do you understand that the functions that are very important to the customer are very important to you? Then there’s the problem of the customer’s inspiration. The more reviews you check out, the more you discover how they tend to cluster at the extremes of viewpoint. On one end, you have upset reviewers with axes to grind; at the other, you have delighted guests who lavish appreciation beyond belief.
You’ll not be shocked to learn that hotels in some cases publish their own glowing 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 picking a hotel. You should then pick an online hotel directory that offers updated, independent, neutral info that really matters.
Here are some of the key realities you should bear in mind:
1. Location: if it matters that your hotel is, for example, near the amusement park, or convenient for the airport, then location is critical. Any good directory should offer a location map of the hotel and its surroundings. There should be distance charts to the airport offered along with some type of an interactive map.
2. Style: it is important to pick a hotel that makes you feel comfortable – modern or standard furnishings, local design or international, formal or relaxed. The perfect hotel directory should let you understand of the alternatives offered.
3. Restaurants, Coffee Shops, 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 casual. A great hotel report should tell you this, and particularly about breakfast facilities.
4. Bedroom Facilities: you should always carefully consider the type 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 facilities, views from the room and high-end offerings like a Pillow menu or Bath menu, choice of smoking or non-smoking rooms, etc
. These things truly do matter and any good hotel directory should provide you this sort of recommendations on bedrooms – not just the number of rooms which is the usual choice!
5. Children’s’ Facilities: more vital to the family tourist than the business tourist. You should find out just how child-friendly the hotel is from the directory and make your decision from there. One thing worth looking for is whether the hotel offers a baby sitter service. For the business tourist wishing to escape children, this is of course extremely pertinent too – possibly a hotel that is not child-friendly would be something more appropriate!
6. Leisure Facilities: the site should offer a detailed analysis of leisure services within the hotel – spa, pool, health club, sauna – along with details of any other facilities close by 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 once again this does not apply to every visitor, it is absolutely vital to some.
Lastly and most importantly, the quality hotel directory inspection team should have gone to the hotel in question on a regular basis, 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 write about the hotel.
with the above information, there is no reason why you should not find the best hotel in the Hills District of Sydney. All the best!
