I freely admit to being obsessed with where I stay for big trips. Here’s a tip for you who might think I’m wasting my time angsting over reservations:
For the upcoming birthday trip to NYC, I booked several hotels. Now that the departure is two weeks away, I’m re-evaluating the bookings so I can see if things have changed and make a final decision.
I learned one hotel where I booked has recently been acquired by a brand I avoid so I’m certain to be oppressed by said brand’s marketing — a spoiler for me. In the spirit of Christmas, I shan’t name names. But message me for additional details if you care. That one was canceled. But another hotel is now 15% less than it was when I last looked (October) … and the room is better/larger. Re-booked and staying there.
My snippet from the road: If accommodations are important to you, invest the time getting exactly what you want for what you choose to spend.
But the hubby will tell you it’s more like 100% ..
