Booking a 4 star hotel in singapore for your family during a holiday is a great responsibility. If there is one thing missing or if the location is not proper, then the whole trip becomes painful for you. You will constantly be accused of either being a miser, or a bad selector or just have to suffer through the constant bickering over how bad the hotel is. So here is the checklist to keep in mind while selecting a hotel.
Read the reviews:
Reviews give you an idea about the place, the staff, the food and the whole experience. While there are chances that the glorifying reviews may be false or inflated, there will be enough genuine reviews for you to take an informed decision. Compare the reviews of the shortlisted hotel in multiple travel and food websites, before finalising.
If you are big family then it is always better to check out the accommodation. Most hotels nowadays offer a view of their suites or hotel rooms on the website along with the tariffs. If you are not satisfied, just call the hotel and ask them to email the pictures of their rooms. In addition, if you need extra beds, it is always better to ring the hotel and ask if they will accommodate it in the same room or do you have to actually pay for another room.
This is the tricky part! Luxury hotels give you comfort and privacy but it comes with a price. When you are signing up for your family, it is better to take in all amenities offered by the hotel. Most luxury hotels do not charge for using their gym or swimming pool, except that you will be allotted a time slot. However, if you want to take up the spa treatment, then plan your budget to include the pampering session. One tip is that you can list down all the requirements that your family wants in the hotel room and find one that provides this checklist. You will have to take that extra effort of calling a few hotels but it will be worth it.
Swimming pool, gaming parlour, saloon, gym, sauna, spa treatment, pool tables or bowling rooms are all part of what luxury hotels offer. Your family deserves all the luxury facilities available because its a holiday and the aim is to make everyone happy. Hotels also offer live bands and disco bars which make the whole package very appealing.
If the hotel is far away from the city, then commuting would always be a challenge. Find out if the hotel provides transportation such as car service or tempo service to accommodate your family members. In addition, while you are selecting a hotel, try to ensure that the proximity of the bus station or any other public transport is nearby. If you want to explore on your own, then you need to be able to travel on the public transport without spending a bomb on the car services.
