In the reader survey a month or so ago, one of the things that people really wanted here on Land of Marvels was more information about how I go about picking flights and hotels and such for our trips in the lead up to the actual travels. I already did a whole recap of how I pick flights and what criteria I look for which you can catch up on here, but today I’m focusing on hotels and how I actually go through and pick hotels that we’ll stay on while we travel. There is a lot that goes into our hotel selections so I thought the easiest way to do this post would be in video format.
Keep in mind that I love a good hotel and that’s not an area we skimp on too much during our travels (we definitely save in other areas). Also, I’m very specific on hotels that have great design as my day job is as an Interior Designer so that’s one area that I really look at that might not be as important to you. All in all though, there are some amazing hotels out there and here’s how I look at criteria for picking them!
