It is the little touches that truly make a difference, and where you decide to stay can have a big effect on the overall satisfaction of your romantic getaway. When looking for the right Hotel or Bed & breakfast, remember these three words location, location, location! You may get a great hotel at a great deal but if it requires a 30-60 minute drive in congestive traffic, through questionable neighborhoods, you may want to think again. If your romantic getaway leads you to a city you've always wanted to explore, staying in the heart of that city is a good idea. Depending on your exploration plans and location of accommodations, you may be able to utilize public transportation and taxi cabs rather than paying for a rental car. Many hotels offer shuttle services to and from local airports as well. Additionally, staff at a centrally located hotel, resort, or B&B are more likely to be able to recommend local restaurants and entertainment for your convenience.
It is always best to make certain to find at least one or two guest reviews as well as photos of your accommodations before making a reservation. Web sites such as Tripadvisor.com offer access to reviews for thousands of hotels located from coast to coast as well as detailed descriptions and photos.
For those of you who thrive on spontaneity and who are the real deal seekers, it is often possible to find amazing deals on hotels without making advance reservations. This however is risky business and you will need to be prepared to spend some time driving around from hotel to hotel getting quotes. You will also need to be prepared to pay a lot for a room. Typically, but not always, hotels can become considerable more flexible on nights when occupancy is low. It is those times when you can find room rates slashed. However, there is no guarantee that you can get a great deal or even secure a room, so be prepared for anything!
In either case, spend some time researching your options ahead of time. If you decide to live dangerously and not make reservations, check to see if there are any major conferences or public events planned in the area at that time to make sure that rooms will be available. For those who prefer to play it safe and sensible, do your research too. Make certain you're getting what you pay for!
