If you’re planning a family vacation in the Orlando area, you’ll have many hotel options to choose from. If you keep the following tips in mind, you’re sure to find the right hotel for your family.
Your first task should be to set a budget. There are many affordable options in the area, but the choice run to $1,000 or more.
Cable TV, air conditioning, and a 24-hour help desk are fairly standard for Orlando hotels. Extras like a pool, jacuzzi, and high-speed internet access will cost more, as will money-saving amenities like a fridge, stove, and microwave.
In general, the closer the hotel to major attractions like Universal Studios and Disney World, the higher the price. If you will have a car, and if saving money is important, you may consider driving a bit more to get to the sites. This might be false economy, however, because some higher-priced hotels offer free shuttle service to nearby attractions. Lower-priced ones will charge you for parking and you will have to pay for parking at the attraction.
Reviews from people who have stayed at a particular hotel can be a great source of information. We all know one or two people who’ve told us horror stories about a vacation ruined by bad service, hard beds, or an insect infestation at a hotel. User reviews on the internet offer a wide range of first-hand experiences at the same property. Though not a guarantee of a trouble-free stay, it’s a good idea to check them out. One of the sources I use is travelpost.com, and my website lists Orlando hotels that offer good value and get consistently good reviews.
A bit of research before you choose a hotel will help you select the right one for you and your family. You are much more likely to be happy with your choice if you’ve done your homework. The right hotel will set the stage for a vacation to remember for a lifetime.
