These are some of the most amazing places to go on vacation if you really want to chill out over the weekends. They don’t have to cost an arm and leg either. These are some of the best hotels to go to that are not just super expensive. They are also super nice and clean.
Budgeting is the most important step in getting a great vacation so you will want to do the best you can. Because you’re still on vacation if you spent a quarter of your time in bed. You may want to stay in a hotel that allows animals in. I know that your best friends tried to get you to stay at a hotel that they planned to go to but you finally said no. Why not this time.
You have to be careful that you don’t ruin your trip by making a costly mistake.
We found the perfect time to take our midwestern family vacation. It was super cheap to get out of town and we have not been to Disneyworld or anywhere in that area. To top it off we stayed at a bed and breakfast which meant we got our first good night of sleep in a long time.
All we had to do was show up and off we went. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny. It was just the right time of year to go to Florida. Just something we have to mention.
Our hotel was the Grand Floridian which is one of the top class properties in Disney World, and had one of the best Hospitality designer in the world based in the interior design. It was near Magic Kingdom and had a large water pool. The room was huge and well decorated. The beds were very comfortable as was the bathroom. The only problem we found was the general cleanliness of some of the rooms.
There were some dishcloths and some furniture that were in bad condition. We also had to elevation the bed from the ground floor to the upper floor. Something we noticed when doing our home work. There were some dirty dishware pieces on the upper floor that obviously were not cleaned since they were wet. Our room faced west and the curtains were open so we could see a total floor coverage of about 100 square feet. There was very heavy pool debris in this area which we cleaned up after we got back to the hotel.
There are many things to write about as far as our room goes. The only thing we have to praise the shine of the room is the fact that there was no blue lime water. Also, there were many black spots on the walls that we are sure were mosquito bites. Some of the draw cards for staying at this hotel were: many, many pool towels, excellent ocean views, peace and quiet, nice and clean poolside bars and restaurants.
Traveling with one piece of luggage is advantageous to the individual that has made the journey. The hotel rooms, as previously mentioned, are lovely and all but the most expensive rooms that are occupied. We were very glad we had taken a couple of pieces of luggage on this trip. The hotel was overbooked, as they cannot sell the rooms they do not have.
Because we traveled with our purse and backpack, we were able to spend a lot of time in the island restaurants at O-hana’s. This is a delicious restaurant close to the beach and we were enjoying our meal. Two of our group members were from Chicago. They had a wonderful weekend away and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals.
A luxurious spa weekend was planned for later in the afternoon. We had a treat break at the North Sails Spa and a detox spa at the Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark. We drank champagne in the afternoon and dinner as we took the ferry over to Disney Springs. We used the net to find a good restaurant and settled in for our evening.
We were tired and happy to be back to our normal lives. We plan to head back to Chicago on a positive note and hopefully will stash the mini bus the kids spotted running around. Miss seeing the open mind and the open heart on our trip – going back to the Windy City.
