Luxury second homes
1. HotelsAh, the old standby. Staying in a hotel is the de facto choice for many travelers, and for good reason. You’ll find hotels in all major cities and almost all vacation destinations, with a wide range of options for size, amenities and price point.
Types of hotel properties
- Luxury: Typically described as four- or five-star properties, luxury hotels have all the bells and whistles. Discerning travelers love the personalized service, myriad of amenities and luxurious furnishings. Many properties feature 24/7 concierge services, fine dining restaurants, on-site spas and a staff dedicated to making your stay the very best.
- Boutique: Boutique hotels often have the same level of service as a luxury hotel, but in a more intimate or unique setting. Boutique hotels have fewer rooms and unlike large hotel chains where every room is the same regardless of the destination, boutique hotels often take design cues from the local area and offer a more one-of-a-kind vibe.
- Mid-range: Most mid-range hotels are operated by large national chains. They’re a middle-of-the-road option, with quality rooms and a comfortable level of service that’s consistent across locations. Rewards programs give benefits to loyal travelers.
- Budget: The most affordable option, budget hotels are wallet-friendly but they have limited service, not offering much in the way of perks or amenities.
