La Quinta Inn Orlando

While traveling around Florida and staying at cheap hotels I was pleasantly surprised to find a La Quinta Inn near the Orlando international Airport what a refreshing oasis.

The hotel is located on frontage road only minutes from the airport and major highways to the coast and area attractions such as Disney World. The hotel has a very attractive lobby and easy access to parking. I was quite impressed with the amenities and services they offer free breakfast,, free Wi-Fi service in every room, which in many hotels you pay extra, free local phone calls,free news papers, and parking. A business center, fitness center, swimming pool, and laundry, are among the amenities. Your rate is approximately $69 dollars a night. For a clean and comfortable stay with a friendly staff call your travel agent for reservations.

European Hotels

When traveling through Europe. There are many different types of hotel accommodation. You may choose from, from the five-star Intercontinental Hotels to a youth hostel. The choice is yours and what your budget will allow.

If you decide to stay at a luxury hotel I would recommend the Intercontinental Hotel, which is usually rated at five-stars. You do have other choices such as local European chains as well as American chain hotels , prices would run from about $60-$120 a night. Some country such as Germany have small mom-and-pop motels as low as $40-$50 a night with breakfast included . They are clean and the staff is friendly you will not find, the amenities you would in a large hotel. Many of the mom-and-pop hotels have a restaurant which serves excellent food. The choice is up to you. So do a little research and you will be surprised what bargains you may find.

Hotel Selection

When planning your vacation or your honeymoon or even your business trip it is important that you select the proper hotel.

It is very simple to determine which hotel to stay at. Do you want economy? Do you want convenience? Do you want security? If you are looking for the cheapest hotel there are probably many in the location you are going but the question is would you be happy there. Many cheap hotels look good on the Internet and even in person when you drive up to the location the story is really what is on the inside ? You may save money, but end up with a less than desirable accommodation with worn carpet and dirty sheets possibly bedbugs and a lack of security. You must consider all these possibilities.

If you choose a more expensive hotel there are some definite advantages , such as the many amenities they will offer you for example a swimming pool and spa, refrigerator, microwave in your room free coffee service and a spotless room with no bedbugs the choice is up to you. . Check with your travel agent for package deals at star rated hotels.

Intercontinental Hotel, Miami

Recently, I had some business at the German Consulate in Miami. So I stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel, which is located across the street only minutes from the consulate.

I highly recommend this hotel, which is located at 100 Chopin Plaza. We had a very nice room located on 24th floor of the hotel . It was a great view of the downtown area , especially at night. You are only a short walk from the marketplace, which consist of shops , restaurants and nightclubs.

During my stay at the hotel I needed some documents faxed to me from an international location the concierge assisted me in obtaining these documents by fax . He was indeed a great help. . I found the entire staff from housekeeping to the front desk very knowledgeable and courteous they try to make your stay a memorable experience. . Without their help I would not have been able to finish my business on time and would have to have made another trip to Miami from Orlando.

The hotel has a pool and spa for your convenience and also a restaurant in the main lobby and a Starbucks coffee shop. if you have to conduct any business in downtown Miami , I highly recommend the Intercontinental Hotel.
