Before you pick out your hotel you're going to reserve a spot at, check out review sites online like TripAdvisor. You will be able to see the most recent reviews. What people say about a hotel can help you figure out where you should be staying.

There are a number of things to consider when deciding which hotel to stay at. Price is important but a shabby, dirty hotel room is no bargain at any price. Amenities like free WiFi, fitness facilities, a pool and free meals may also be important considerations. Choose an establishment that offers the amenities you desire.

Be sure to keep your valuables and electronics secure by locking them in your hotel room's safe. You should put any expensive items in the hotel safe.

Know your check-in time in advance. If you show up too early for check-in, then your room may not be ready for you yet. If you find you will be arriving early, call the hotel in advance and find out if you will be allowed in.

Prior to booking your hotel room, search the Internet for deals. Lots of times, when you book a room, they don't tell you about online discounts. It is your responsibility to find any available discounts. Sites, such as Jetsetter, will let you know of any discounts available.

Planning for a trip months or even just weeks in advance can often get you a better rate for your hotel room. Some hotels have a discount if you book your room a month or more ahead of time. You can expect savings up to fifty percent if you book months in advance.

Always book early for that special couples massage for you and your loved one. Resorts that have masseurs often have very fully booked massage schedules, so it is important to plan ahead.

To make sure that you get a couple's massage when you're staying somewhere, get your appointment booked as early as you are able to. Often the best masseurs and masseuses at top resorts are booked by name, so if you do your planning early, you can make your experience sublime.

It is wise to join a hotel loyalty program if you travel frequently. They offer rewards to guests who book the same hotel chain frequently. Rewards can include free hotel stays, upgrades and late check-out times if you save up enough points.

Bring your running clothes with you on your trip. Get up early and dress for a jog in the early morning. When you go running in a new city, you will get a free tour, up-close and personal.

Sign up for AAA to ensure easier hotel arrangements when traveling. A membership with AAA not only provides you with hotel discounts but a guaranteed piece of mind when trying to rent a vehicle. They even throw in free car seats at most locations if you're a parent.

Don't call long distance in your hotel room. Instead, use the Internet. The hotel may even offer Skype calls via Wi-Fi. You will be able to stay in touch with family and friends while you are away without the additional expense of costly phone calls.

Now you can use this knowledge to your advantage. It isn't too difficult to get, especially with these tips. Be patient and cautious and you will surely prevail.
