Three Things to Look For In A Hotel

Things to Look for in a Hotel

When you are planning a vacation with friends, family or your significant other the most important detail of the entire trip is deciding where you are going to stay. Price is usually the primary factor, but you want a hotel that is going to fit your needs. Here are three things to consider before booking a hotel room.


Location is key; you choose your location before you consider the surrounding hotels. Make sure the hotel is conveniently close to the places you plan to visit, sightsee and explore.

On-site Facilities

This really depends on what type of trip you are taking; if you’re taking a business trip, you may have time off during the day. A hotel that offers a spa, gym and restaurant will give you a chance to enjoy your free time.

Star Ratings & Reviews

Always look at the comments of the hotel you are considering. You will find the most honest reviews online from other people who have stood there. Real customers will let you know what to expect.

Are you planning a trip to Laredo, TX and are looking at hotels? There is only one place to stay that has wonderful on-site facilities, is pet friendly and located right behind the Del Norte Mall, Amerik Suites! Click here to book your next trip.

Laredo and Fredericksburg Hotels

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaExperience Matters

There will always be hotels. There will always be too many to choose from. How do you separate the quality ones from the lackluster? Experience – for many, years in the industry are often the x-factor when deciding on a hotel.

Here’s why;


Seasoned hotels anticipate their guest’s wants and needs very quickly. Years of service have allowed them to identify what will follow a certain gesture or phrase.

Cooler Heads

Hotels that have been in the game understand that not everyone is going to be happy. In fact, some guests get downright angry. Knowing this, they approach situations with a positive attitude, often calming upset visitors.

The little things

They have great memories. Remembering frequent visitors by name, when they like to be woken up, their kid’s name, and other quirks that make a guest’s stay special.

The Texas Hill Country Hotels have major experience. We have over 20 years of experience and will use that knowledge to enhance your vacation to the max.

Visit our website and see when you can come and visit, we’d love to have you and your family!
