It’s been a long day… Every journey to any vacations destination – sometimes short, sometimes long – turns out to be somewhat exhausting. At least for all the packing and organisation, that needs to be done in the run-up. But then finally you arrive at your hotel, you do the check-in; you can’t wait to see your room. You open the door and all is stylish, and neat, and looks so good. Awesome! But then… The bathroom is made of glass! This is about how a nice hotel room can still turn out into a nightmare and what hotel managers really should think about concerning their visions of a vitreous guest.
I am a huge fan of (nice) hotels. Hotel rooms give me a feeling of “coming home” – crazy, right? Sometimes I feel a little bit like George Clooney in “Up in the Air”. His character Ryan Bingham is almost always on the road. He flies back and forth across the US and dismisses employees of other companies. Bingham wants to collect ten million frequent flyer miles and says the following sentence:“Last year I spent 322 days on the road, which means I had to spend 43 miserable days at home.”
Well, it’s not quite that bad for me to not stay at hotels, but a year with only a few hotel stays propably won’t be my favorite year. Find here the top 20 hotels that have made a particularly positive impression on me in recent years.
