If you’re booking hotels by looking at nothing but the hotel’s website, you’re playing a dangerous game. Hotels go above and beyond to make their property look absolutely fabulous, even going so far as to Photoshop images (It’s just one secret that hotels don’t want you to know). Do your due diligence by checking hotels out on review sites like TripAdvisor and Oyster before booking, and you’ll save yourself from making some catastrophic mistakes.
