Opt for an apartment instead of a hotel room on your next vacation

While hotels can be a fun place to stay when on vacation, we prefer to stay at apartments when are on longer trips. My biggest grouse against hotels is that they all look alike, and are configured alike which makes it rather boring and wasteful to spend money on a place that doesn't really enhance the experience of traveling and being away from home. Most hotels have added little kitchenettes into the same rooms, making them seem even smaller and more cramped than before.

We spent 5 days in Goa last month and stayed at a one bedroom apartment which was a really nice way to add to the vacation experience. My hubby stays at an apartment hotel each time he travels on business, whether it is Bangalore or Dubai or anywhere else. Apartment hotels have all the extras such as DVD players, answer phones, broadband access, satellite TV etc that you have to pay extra for in a hotel room, which are just some of the reasons why Luxury Apartments are better than hotel rooms. The thing is that unless you actually try it out, you'll never realize just how luxurious it is to stay in an apartment rather than a hotel room.
