IRVINE

A great vacation includes down time. I travel extensively for business, so a vacation is not always about rushing out the door for a hotel. But, I have become a bit of an expert on hotel quality, and what makes a hotel work. Choosing a hotel depends on the focus of the moment. I never look for the cheapest hotel. Instead, I focus on the quality level I want or need, and then shop price and location next. In business travel, a great bed, reliable quality, and fast internet are essential. Marriott and Hilton are the best chains in terms of meeting those needs, in part because they have thousands of properties. I prefer Marriott, and my favorites are Marriott Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites, but I also enjoy the Hilton Garden Inn and Hilton's newer Hampton Inns. The two Marriott's mentioned give plenty of room for family travel and vacations, each offering full service kitchens, fully furnished with dishes, a dishwasher, full size refrigerators, ovens and more. Residence Inn and Hampton Inn both provide their guests with free breakfasts. Always consider if parking is free or not, and the same with internet - little things add up. Consider new or recently renovated properties; the improvements may seem subtle but hotels are very attuned to the changing moods and needs of their travelers, and the newer or remodeled properties are much more appealing. Those little tweaks in lighting, chairs, bedding and bathroom appointments make a huge, huge difference. Of course, there are times for staying in the center of the action, but I typically avoid downtown areas when possible and find a nicely situated suburban hotel - they are cheaper, quieter, parking and internet is almost always free, and food choices are much less expensive. Try to book at least a week or two in advance because if you reserve at the last minute there may be a big event in town and rates will always be high whenever occupancy is high. You may have stayed there last Wednesday for $60/night, but this Wednesday it is $140... even if you are a highly ranked awards member, and have AARP, AAA and government IDs. Book directly on the hotel websites. You will always get the best rates, and if you are a member of their rewards programs (which are free) you will get extra points for booking online. Sometimes, when you travel on business, the local facility you are visiting has negotiated killer rates that can beat anything you can find on the net. So be sure to ask that local university or hospital where you are working if they have negotiated with hotels. Also, check that business's website, because they will often have discounts listed in the section of their site that gives directions to their facility. Finally, if all else fails, call the hotel's 1-800 number and ask if there is a 'hospital' (fill in the blank) rate. A question here or there could save you hundreds of dollars.
