So you’re going to the Hills District of Sydney. You’ve picked this location and now you need to pick a hotel. 10 years back, you ‘d have most likely visited your local travel agent and trusted the in person suggestions you were offered by the so-called ‘experts’. The 21st Century way to select and book your hotel is obviously on the Internet, by utilizing travel websites.
But how do you sift through the incredible options available? And more notably, do you really rely on the pictures and descriptions of the hotels that they have awarded themselves with the motivation of getting reservations?
Traveler reviews can be useful, 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 They are often prejudiced, in some cases out of date, and might not serve your interests at all.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 know that the features that are necessary to the reviewer are necessary to you? Then there’s the problem of the reviewer’s motivation. The more reviews you read, the more you discover how they tend to cluster at the extremes of opinion. On one end, you have angry customers with axes to grind; at the other, you have delighted guests who lavish praise beyond belief.
You’ll not be amazed to learn that hotels in some cases publish their own radiant reviews or that rival’s line up for the chance to lambaste the competitors with bad reviews. It makes sense to consider what is really important to you when picking a hotel. You should then pick an online hotel directory site that offers updated, independent, impartial information that really matters.
Here are a few of the key facts you should keep in mind:
1. Location: if it matters that your hotel is, for example, near to the theme park, or convenient for the airport, then location is critical. Any decent directory site should offer a location map of the hotel and its surroundings. There should be distance charts to the airport provided in addition to some form of an interactive map.
2. Style: it is very important to pick a hotel that makes you feel comfy – modern or traditional furnishings, local decoration or international, formal or relaxed. The perfect hotel directory site should let you know of the options readily available.
3. Restaurants, Cafes, and Bars: local color is excellent but the hotel’s own restaurants and bars can play an important part in your stay. You should be aware of choice, style and whether they are clever or informal. A great hotel report should tell you this, and particularly about breakfast facilities.
4. Bedroom Facilities: you should always thoroughly consider the kind 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 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 really do matter and any decent hotel directory site should offer you this sort of suggestions on bed rooms – not just the variety of spaces which is the usual option!
5. Children’s’ Facilities: more vital to the household traveler than business traveler. You should find out just how child-friendly the hotel is from the directory site and make your decision from there. Something worth searching for is whether the hotel offers a baby sitter service. For business traveler wishing to escape children, this is obviously very pertinent too – maybe a hotel that is not child-friendly would be something better!
6. Leisure Facilities: the site should offer a detailed analysis of leisure services within the hotel – spa, swimming pool, health club, 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 once again this does not apply to every visitor, it is absolutely vital to some.
Lastly and most notably, the quality hotel directory site inspection team should have checked out 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 guest can and it is only then that they are really in a strong position to write about the hotel.
with the above information, there is no reason why you shouldn’t find the best hotel in the Hills District of Sydney. All the best!
