From the days of hotelier-in-chief Donald Trump’s arrival in Las Vegas, the country has been a place where the luxury of luxury can be measured by the number of rooms.
But how do you book the perfect hotel for a particular event?
How to find the perfect room for your family?
And how to book a room that will last through the end of the year?
Here are five ways to book your next party, vacation, business trip, business conference, wedding, and any other big event.
Book online First, you need to know what you want.
While you can book a hotel with a reservation, you’ll likely want to book online, as hotel bookings aren’t as reliable as you might think.
“The best way to book is to go to the website and get an appointment for your hotel reservation,” says Amy Kuehl, senior marketing manager at Booking.com.
This way, you don’t need to make a booking or book a night or two in advance.
When you arrive at the hotel, you can then make your reservations, and Booking will do all the work for you.
Book in person First, make sure you can actually book in person.
While booking online is faster and easier, it doesn’t necessarily mean you can get a hotel reservation or a room on time.
“Online bookings are a lot more flexible than hotel reservations,” Kuell says.
“You can book in the morning and have it delivered to you by the afternoon.”
Book through your phone bookings can be made through mobile apps like MyBooking.
The platform, which allows people to book hotel reservations on their smartphones, also allows you to book rooms, as well as book groups.
This can be a great way to find a room, especially when you’re trying to book for an event that might take place on the same day as your big party or business conference.
Book on Airbnb If you’re planning to book through Airbnb, you should definitely take into consideration the location of your event, as Airbnb offers a suite-like option that will save you a lot of time.
If you book through the platform, however, you might not get the best value for your money.
Airbnb doesn’t offer an accurate room count, so you can only compare prices for a specific suite with rooms in other rooms that have been booked.
You can also cancel your booking at any time.
Book directly with Booking If you want to get a better understanding of the price of rooms, you’re going to need to book directly with the hotel.
The most popular hotels for Airbnb use a “guest booking” option.
This lets guests book directly through the hotel for up to three nights in a row.
The downside of this option is that it requires you to sign up for an account and pay a monthly fee.
Booking on Airbnb can be tricky, however.
“There’s always a risk that you’ll get a cancellation notice,” says Kristina Boesch, executive director of Airbnb.
“I think if you book on Airbnb with the guest booking, you want it to be safe, but it’s not necessarily safe.”
Use the hotel search function If you can’t find the right room on Airbnb, the hotel can often be the best option for you, Boesen says.
If it’s your first hotel, it’s easy to figure out which hotel has the best selection, but if you’re a seasoned hotelier and are booking a hotel frequently, it might be a good idea to start with the most popular hotel.
This helps you figure out what you’re looking for in terms of rooms and suites.
If this hotel doesn’t have the rooms that you’re after, you may want to look into the availability of a suite, and see if there are any available, too.
Book with a family member The next step is to book with a friend or family member.
Boeschen suggests that family members and friends book together, as they have a more natural bond.
“It can be especially useful if you have children who are traveling,” she says.
Bookings can also be made by guests, and family members are able to book their rooms with a relative or friend.
Book for a birthday party or special event Booking a hotel room for a special birthday or anniversary celebration is also a great option.
If your guests don’t know you, or you don to the extent you’re booking the right suite, you could also book with someone who does.
Buesch recommends booking with someone in the family to help ensure that you have enough rooms to host the event.
Book a wedding party or event with a large group of people Booking rooms in a large party or large event can help make booking that much easier, especially if you don
