First, did you see the original “Band Tee Rules“? The little adventure we had to the big city was better than I could have imagined. We went up early before our check in and spent some time wandering around the largest mall I have ever seen. After the claustrophobic experience that was the mall we went to find our hotel. At first, I was nervous because I wasn’t quite sure how to book a hotel online the right way.
The hotel was absolutely amazing in every way. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The hotel itself was gorgeous. So modern and elegant. Our room was spectacular. We had a view of the lake on the 42 floor. Favourite part was probably the shower, weird I know, but I dream of a shower like that one. Glass door, nice tile, and super spacious with a rain head.
After laying in bed watching Spongebob we went down to the restaurant in the hotel. There we meet other couples going to the concert as well. To our surprise, one of them paid for our meal which I didn’t stop gushing about the entire trip. After dinner, we went to the concert, it was a bit short but the fun we had made up for it.
During a song we both love my boyfriend gave me a ring, and I haven’t stopped smiling ear to ear since. I can confidently say it was the best weekend ever.
One thing that would have made the weekend a nightmare was the hotel. It could have been a nightmare booking a hotel online.
Here are some tips on how to book a hotel online:
Tip #1 Look at Reviews. Specifically the negative reviews. People will tell you their honest thoughts about the hotel so you know what to look out for. If you are noticing that everyone hates the parking, parking probably is going to be crumby.
Tip #2 Look at the Location. If you pull up the address on Google Maps ad use Streetview you can get a decent idea of the part of town the hotel is in. Also, the amount of traffic that goes by. If you are a light sleeper, or nervous about location always check before hand.
Tip #3 Price Range. The cheapest hotel and highest priced hotels are usually that way for a reason. I prefer mid-range because it has the quality I like without the unnecessary amenities.
