Ready for a vacation in the Orlando Florida area? Trying to decide how to find the right hotel for your vacation? Keep the following in mind when choosing the hotel for your family.
Determine what your budget is
The first thing you should realize is that you will find Orlando hotels in every price range. If you have an unlimited budget you can easily find hotels charging $1000 per night or more. Most people, however, are not in that financial position. For this reason, you need to determine how much you are willing to pay per night for the amenities you will get.
Almost all Orlando hotels will provide you with basics like cable tv, air conditioning, 24-hour help desk. If you want fancier amenities like a pool, jacuzzi, fridge and stove, microwave, or high-speed internet access, be prepared to spend more money on your room per night.
You pay more for hotels closer to major attractions
If you are planning a visit to Universal Studios, Disney World, Epcot Center, etc, you will pay more the closer you are to these major attractions. You need to decide as to how much you are willing to pay for being closer to your chosen attractions. If saving money is more important, you will probably want to choose a hotel that has a bit of a driving distance to your attractions. Some of the fancy hotels closer to the major attractions will offer you free shuttle service to and from your favorite attractions. A cheap hotel will force you to have to pay parking fees either at the major attraction or a local parking garage. This can be a hidden cost of going with a cheaper hotel.
Check at least one major hotel review site for user opinion
Almost everyone knows someone who had a horrible experience on a vacation due to bad service at a hotel. Some hotels are terrible at service, have hard beds, or even have an insect infestation. While reading user reviews won’t absolutely guarantee that you have a wonderful experience, negative reviews can give you clues as to potential problems. On my website, I have compiled a list of some Orlando hotels that have received good reviews and look to provide you with good value. Another website where I have pulled user reviews on hotels has been travelpost.com
Whichever hotel you choose, do your homework and you are much less likely to be disappointed with your choice. Your choice of a hotel can certainly have a big impact on the enjoyment you get out of your vacation. Choose the right hotel and your vacation is well on its way to being the best vacation you’ve ever had in your life.
