What are your favourite hotel facilities when on holidays?

Published

on

Everyone has a short list of favourite hotel facilities that your accommodation must have for a holiday. Families with children staying in warm climates will probably want a pool, whereas a fitness freak might need a gym. Everyone has different requirements.

Choosing a hotel has become an art form, with people carefully balancing their needs and wants against the price. After all, rolling up to the Bates Motel and expecting a five star experience is a recipe for disaster!

My Favourite Hotel Facilities

It is always nice to have access to a pool, even on a city break. In Ireland, it is not common to have a pool at home, perhaps unsurprisingly, due to the climate. Therefore it’s a bit of a treat to be able to go swimming.

Another thing that is a nice bonus is a gym of some sort. Having a treadmill to reel off a few kilometres is nice and handy, especially after coming off a long flight. A cleansing sweat is always pleasant.

Any kind of free sauna or steam room is great. I once stayed in a spa hotel and literally spent hours using all their various facilities which is fun. I do find being charged extra for something like that a bit on the nose.

The other thing I really like is room service. When you don’t want to go out, it is so nice to have food brought up to you, especially at breakfast time. Starting the day lazily is a luxurious treat when you’re on holidays.

Overall Thoughts

Everyone has their favourite hotel facilities. When I stayed at the InterContinental Hong Kong, I was happy to find they had a Nobu restaurant on site and had free morning Tai Chi available for guests. As it was something different, I certainly found that enjoyable.

At the end of the day though, good service from helpful staff can make or break a stay. Whether it’s friendly people at the bar like when I stayed at citizenM at Amsterdam Airport or great restaurant service, it all adds to the experience.

Have a virtual visit with Santa this year with Airbnb

Published

By

Wanting to help the Christmas community continue to earn income during what would normally be their busiest time of year, it is calling all Santas, elves and reindeer to submit their idea for an Online Experience idea. It will also be partnering with Santa Visits USA to offer even more ways to meet Santa Claus and the entire North Pole gang this year. These include Christmas magic with Kris Kingle himself, a holiday-themed bedtime pyjama party, a visit with head elf, Buzz Twinkletoes, and even a murder mystery show with Mrs Claus.

“According to a new report by the Fraternal Order of Real-Bearded Santas, nearly a third of their members surveyed will not be taking part in in-person visits this year,” says Airbnb. “As many of Santa Claus entertainers worldwide live on a fixed income and are reliant on their income from appearances during the holiday season, this new reality has created serious economic hardship for countless Santa performers.”

Guests can also enjoy Santa Claus around the world, with special experiences designed for families of all backgrounds, including people with disabilities. These include a “Virtual Visit and Story Time with Santa,” “Mama Claus Holiday Joy,” “Sign Language Santa,” “Meet Santa Claus in Lapland” and “Santa Storytime” with an award-winning author. In addition, hosts are sharing their own holiday traditions from around the world so people can feel festive from home, such as “How to Throw a Holiday Dinner Party,” “Create recycled puppets for the holidays” and “Sing Holiday Songs with a Broadway Star.”

Airbnb will provide additional support to Santa Claus entertainers who are interested in becoming Online Experience hosts, helping them to make a seamless transition to virtual visits. Further information is available here, and you can read about the holiday experiences already available here.
