Accommodation type. Although you can’t appeal to everyone, appealing to the specific traveler that is looking for your accommodation type will go a long way to influence their decision-making. Accommodation details. Including detail will set you apart from other hotels in the running during a consumer’s decision-making process. The more they know, the more likely they will book a room.

The Wi-Fi connection needs to be available and accessible regardless of where you are within a hotel. The bathroom space: a good hotel should have adequate bathroom space. This will allow guests to feel at home and relaxed. It should be spacious enough to set up a few things that you need to use often. It is important to take time as you select a hotel.

It is also important to ask about the policies of the hotel. Do they allow pets? Do they allow kids? You need to assess your own special needs and the people or things you want to travel with so as to know whether they are allowed where you are going or not.
