Any good tips before I book?

if you need flexible dates be aware of non-refundable hotel reservations Some hotels do not offer a refund if you cancel your booking. The tradeoff for such strict policies is often a great value deal and this brings us to the second tip below. read cancellation policies

As boring as fine print might look, always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation so you know what you’re in for if you do have to cancel. check-in early if possible

The earlier in the day you check into a hotel, the more likely you are to be given a room or suite that matches your special requests or preferences if you have any. Normal hotel check-in time is around 2pm, if you arrive before 2pm the hotel can often hold your bags until your room is ready and you can relax and grab a coffee or start checking out the hotel straight away.

know that hotel rates do change over time Hotel rates vary by season, day of week, during special events, etc. Our indicative rates are historic estimates that you can use to compare hotels in the same location.
