Tambi Renee

Tambi Renee loves to travel and considers staying in fine hotels to be one of the biggest perks of seeing the world. Most recently, Tambi Renee has stayed at the Hotel du Louvre Paris, the Waldorf Astoria Towers, the Peninsula Hotel Beverly Hills, and the Savoy London. Above all, however, Tambi Renee loves traveling on a budget. Here, Tambi Renee offers some questions you might ask to find out how you can stay in luxury without breaking the bank.

Which Nights are Cheapest?

While hotels might quote you a certain dollar amount for a night’s stay, the prices generally fluctuate depending on day of the week, season, and nearby holidays. Before booking, find out which nights will cost you the least amount. If your travel dates are flexible, for example, consider booking a trip between Monday and Thursday instead of one that will force you to pay weekend rates.

What is Included?

If you want all the bells and whistles, it’s a good idea to see what comes with the room and what you’ll have to pay extra for. Know what you want, too. There’s no use in paying a premium for a room with an ocean view or Jacuzzi tub if those aren’t amenities you’ll actually enjoy. Knowing what comes with your room will also help you to avoid spending additional money – for example, if you know that your room comes with complimentary dry cleaning, you won’t have to spend that money elsewhere.

What is Transportation Like Nearby?

Finding a hotel close to a train stop or near a major thoroughfare can help you save money on transportation costs. If you plan on driving to your location or renting a car, be sure to ask about the parking situation – you may find that an on-site garage is quite costly, which could inspire you to seek alternatives.
