Traveling and Hotels

Traveling is a great way to escape the daily grind and inspire creativity in people whether they’re artists, chefs, writers, video game designers, etc. It also boosts morale in the workplace by allowing employees to step away from their desks and experience new environments and situations. Traveling has even been linked to higher productivity in the office. Students who are interested in this industry can learn how to organize travel and accommodation through UNOH’s program in Travel & Hotel Management.

A hotel is a place to stay for business travellers, vacationers and weary road trippers that offers clean, secure spaces with amenities like room service, WiFi and parking. Hotels can range from small boutique hotels to large international chains and even luxury resorts. Choosing a hotel can seem overwhelming when there are so many options to choose from. Seasoned travelers tend to agree that there are a few key factors that can make or break a hotel stay.

One important factor to consider when choosing a hotel is its proximity to the areas where you’ll be visiting and working. Some hotels are specifically geared toward business travellers and can offer amenities such as meeting rooms, fast internet access and concierge services. Others are located in close proximity to airports, train stations and other transportation infrastructure that is important for business travellers.

In terms of cost, it’s worth considering the type of amenities that are important to you and comparing them to what each hotel offers. For example, a complimentary breakfast can save you money by allowing you to skip dining out in the morning and get an early start on your day. Also, don’t forget to check out loyalty programs offered by the hotels you’re interested in. Many hotels partner with frequent flier programs and you can earn points on your stays that may allow you to redeem them for free rooms in the future.
