When I travel whether with or without my family but course preferably with them we like to try and find the best prices for suites with kitchens which more times than not are executive suites. Believe it or not whether it’s executive suites in Calgary, Los Angeles, Orlando, Chicago, Toronto or wherever you need to travel you can find great prices on executive suites.
Of course off season is always best but we don’t always have that choice and when we don’t I utilize discounts from Triple A or I do a search for them. I’m quite seasoned at booking hotels as I also used to do it in a previous life for visiting dignitaries, faculty and others for the universities I’ve worked for and that’s how I know that there are deals to be had most of the time.
We like having the suites as a family or as mentioned even if I’m by myself (in those cases something smaller for me, just a small kitchen and I’m happy) as we like to have a kitchen. I know many don’t want to cook or clean when they go out but some nights when travelling I like to just chill out if it’s a nice room, or if I’m wanting a late night snack we will have something in the suite’s kitchen.
The last time we traveled as a family we were gone for just over two weeks and let me tell you it was a godsend that we had a fully furnished suite for our stay. If you’ve traveled with children of any age you know that when they get tired and cranky you might get tired and cranky and it’s not worth it to go to a restaurant to eat. It’s nice to have the option to relax, have some downtime after a full day of activities, prepare whatever snack will satisfy you and the kids and get a good night’s sleep. Most suites have dishwashers too so really it’s not that much work.
Next time you’re travelling check it out and see you could get a great price on an Executive Suite and you will enjoy the perks that come with it 🙂
