So you’re going to the Hills District of Sydney. You’ve picked this location and now you need to choose a hotel. Ten years back, you ‘d have probably visited your local travel representative and trusted the in person guidance you were offered 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 sort through the incredible options available? And more importantly, do you truly rely on the photos and descriptions of the hotels that they have awarded themselves with the motivation of getting bookings?
Traveler reviews can be helpful, but you need to exercise care. They are typically prejudiced, in some cases out of date, and may not serve your interests at all. How do you know that the functions that are essential to the customer are essential to you? Then there’s the problem of the customer’s motivation. The more reviews you check out, the more you observe how they tend to cluster at the extremes of opinion. On one end, you have upset customers with axes to grind; at the other, you have delighted visitors 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 good sense to consider what is truly important to you when choosing a hotel. You should then choose an online hotel directory site that offers up-to-date, independent, impartial info that truly matters.
Here are a few of the key facts you should remember:
1. Location: if it matters that your hotel is, for example, close to the amusement 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 offered along with some form of an interactive map.
2. Style: it is very important to choose a hotel that makes you feel comfy – contemporary or traditional furnishings, local decoration or international, formal or relaxed. The ideal hotel directory site should let you know of the options readily available.
3. Restaurants, Cafes, and Bars: local color is great 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 or not they are smart or informal. A good hotel report should tell you this, and particularly about breakfast facilities.
4. Bedroom Facilities: you should always carefully 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 high-end offerings like a Pillow menu or Bath menu, choice of smoking or non-smoking spaces, etc
. These things truly do matter and any decent hotel directory site should provide you this sort of guidance on bedrooms – not just the variety of spaces which is the usual choice!
5. Children’s’ Facilities: more vital to the household tourist than business tourist. You should learn just how child-friendly the hotel is from the directory site and make your decision from there. One thing worth looking for is whether the hotel offers a babysitter service. For business tourist wanting to escape 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 detailed analysis of leisure services within the hotel – spa, swimming pool, health club, sauna – along with 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 once again this does not apply to every visitor, it is absolutely crucial to some.
Finally and most importantly, 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 truly 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. Best of luck!
