Tips to pick the best luxury hotels
First of all, you need to find a good and reliable website, which will provide you with information about the hotel, the payment methods, the weather and etc. Knowing this information is crucial for anyone who likes to spend his vacation in a luxury hotel. He/she must know how his money is spent. Some websites that will provide you with plenty information on the luxury hotels are: Perfect Escapes, Last Minute, The Leading Hotels of the World. They will give you the information you need to know how to choose the best luxury hotel on the internet.
Following these steps will let you make up your mind:
First you need to know exactly where you are going.
You need to predetermine the money you are willing to spent for a day in the hotel
Search any of the mentioned websites
when you find something that you like, check if there are any last minute offers
Check for packages, like: 5 days- reduce the price with 10%, 7 days- reduce the price with 12% and etc.
Check, if the hotel has luxurious things like: Piano Bar, Casino, three- four pools, library, tennis cord/cords, basketball, gym, sauna, steam bath. All these things should be mentioned in the website of the hotel.
Check for room specifications: Plasma TV, Jacuzzi, Bath, huge terrace, bed/ beds, Air- Conditioner. To ensure that these things really exist check for pictures of the rooms. Good websites will provide pictures of the hotel’s rooms. Examine them closely. If you have any doubts that these are copied photos, avoid checking in there.
Payment methods are important since you will not be able to book the reservation in person. You will have to do it by any of the following methods: Credit cards, Western union, bank transactions. The best online websites will give you the option to book your dreamed luxury hotel by at least 3-4 different methods of paying the money for the reservation. This is probably the key factor for choosing the best luxury hotel, when you search online. Some people fall for the catch, where a website offers only one way of sending the money. However, there are a lot of good pictures on the website, showing that the hotel/hotels are extremely good and all the luxury things that you want are present. This is the reason why you send the money and when you finally arrive at the hotel, there is no reservation on your name. Sounds familiar?
Each good hotel’s website must have a phone call number. Before even considering sending your money, you must make one phone call to ensure that this website is related to the specified hotel.
Spend time online. You do not need to rush. If you are looking for the best luxury hotel, then you need to put some efforts. Check any information, which is present online and if you feel that there is something wrong with the website, do not hesitate to leave the page for good.
Read reviews. This is the second most important things that you need to do before you actually do the reservation. These reviews are completed by previous visitors of the hotel and they have used the services of the particular website to get there. However, frauds are also present here. Many reviews are incomplete or only with 2-3 sentences. If you come across something like that, do not doubt that this is a fraud. Good reviews are usually long. People tend to explain everything in details. Read as many reviews as possible. Also, some of the people leave an email there. You can choose to contact them to ensure that they have really posted their comment on the website.
Many websites have visitors counters, located in their left corner. Check it and if the visitors counter shows that only few people have visited the website, this means that this is not a reliable website.
People from 21st century like to choose luxury hotels online. Some of the luxury hotels are really popular and for that reason it is not hard to recognize them. However, some of the names of the hotels could be changed to trick you. For example the name of the hotel “Ritz” could be changed in “Rits”. Only few people will spot the difference, especially when they are looking at the online website of the hotel. Of course this is a fraud, that’s why you need to know the exact name of the hotel that you want to visit. This fraud is less popular these days because of the improvements made in google. It sorts first the most popular websites for hotels and because of that you will not have problems to find what you are looking for.
Luxury is luxury
When you want to visit a luxury hotel, you must seek for: casino in the hotel, theater, cinema, tennis cord, live show and etc. These things change a normal hotel to a luxury hotel.
