One of the biggest things people forget when choosing their hotel is “want” versus “need;” what do you need from your hotel? Do you want wireless internet for your laptop or will you need a computer center to log on? Do you need to be near any particular location so you can meet up with your co-workers early? Are you having meetings such that you’ll need to be nearby your room regularly? Sometimes people take things like a spa, sauna, or swimming pool over these other, very real needs. While many hotels allow you to pick better services for more money, there are some value plays that come equipped with these things standard.
