Why choose a luxury hotel? Find the perfect luxury hotel that ticks all the boxes

The word "luxury" is casually used to describe a number of hotels, but what really makes a luxury hotel? Here's a look at what a real luxury hotel has to offer, and just why you should choose one.


Booking a hotel room shouldn't be complicated

Checking into a luxury hotel should be a walk in the park for anyone. The reservation process, whether done online, via phone or through a luxury travel agent, should be simple and respectful, while furnishing you with all the information you need. Any questions you have regarding the room or special needs should be answered promptly and taken care of without any hassle.


No waiting for you room

After travelling for hours to reach your hotel, the last thing you want to do is waiting in a long check-in queue. However, now, a reservations officer will simply come to you with a tab, and do everything in 5 minutes' tops! Ensuring that you get checked in as fast as possible, and that your bags arrive in your room just as you do. On checkout day, a luxury hotel will provide express checkout to quickly settle your bills without any hassle or delays.


Get the room you always wanted

The room you are allotted should be exactly what you requested for. A real luxury hotel will go out of their way to accommodate any requests regrading room category, special classifications (which can include pet-friendly, allergen free, a change of mattress), location within the hotel, window view, king or queen bed sizes, and so much more. The word "no" should not be in their vocabulary.


Get the features you paid for

For any hotel to be considered luxury, certain features are a must in any room. Impeccable design, a king size bed with smooth cotton sheets, no synthetic covers of any kind, a variety of pillows, and high-quality furnishings. Of course, these are just the basics, there's entertainment options; a large flat screen TV and working radio, a USB dock to plug in phones or laptops. A good desk and comfortable reading chair, and a quiet cooling/heating system that does that job perfectly, so you don't have to constantly fiddle with the dials. In addition, there are things that should be complimentary throughout your stay like bottled water, coffee and tea, and WIFI, wherever you are in the hotel.


A bathroom worth talking about

A bathroom should be more than just an extension of your room, it should feel like another room altogether. Nowadays, most luxury hotels, like the ones owned by Minor Hotels, for example, an international hotel group with properties around the world, will feature large bathrooms, with luxury fittings, marble or wooden flooring, artisan toiletries from designer brands, and a window view that just as stunning from the one in the main room.
