No matter where in the world you travel you will definitely need some sort of shelter while you are away from home. The main form of shelter away from home is typically a hotel. There can be different types of hotels that include hostels, cabanas, and bungalows. However, the most common place to stay while on vacation is a hotel. Often times a hotel can be just as important thing to research than the place you are vacationing. Chances are if you are vacationing somewhere nice there will be a wide variety of hotels to choose from. If you are looking to stay in a cheaper hotel then you can decide on the star rating of the hotel.

You will likely have to spend hundreds per night in one of these hotels but it is definitely worth it when you see the caliber of the hotel some vacation spots offer!
