When people decide to go on vacation and they search for the accommodation of their choice, the one that will suit their needs best, there are usually all kinds of factor people take into consideration. It could be the location of the property, the star ratings, the room amenities, the type of food that is served or just how good of reviews the hotel has received. We could easily say that location and service are generally the top reasons why someone, traveling alone or not, would choose a place to spend their next vacation for.
Just like there are all kinds of reasons for going on a trip, there are also some very interesting and eye-opening reasons for why one hotel or B&B would be better than the other. In fact, some people base their decision on where to stay on the most unexpected reasons, for example, how at home the property will make them feel. Now, it sounds almost like an oxymoron, why would anyone want to travel anywhere just so they could feel like they never left home at the end of the day? Well, we guess there are people that like the idea of feeling like they never really left. We believe it’s more than that and that what makes a hotel be considered one that has that cozy vibe has to do with how friendly the service is, how comfortable the hotel’s amenities are and all those little things that make one feel as relaxed and as comfy as possible. Here are five hotels that will give you that homey feeling and that take the meaning of hospitality to a whole new level:
