Y'all know we're just not extravagant people...
stay within the budget our reimbursement allows...
They always offer a good clean CHOICE [ha] place
to lay our weary heads after a long day working out of town.
[I've stayed at the same hotel almost monthly for about five years now -]
And the best part?!
Yes. Points that you earn depending on how much you stay and
then use on other rooms for free.
So, our strategy has always been to save our points for fun.
Choice has several levels of hotels
and while our travel stays are almost always at Comfort Inn & Suites [or Sleep Inn]
we splurge a bit with our points when we travel
and look toward the Ascend and BlueGreen options.
Craig always does a great job choosing great places when we travel!
Here's a ]not so] quick run-down:
Our sweet little hotel in Kennebunk, Maine
They gave us a welcome giftie with real maple syrup and candies!
Our hotel in Boston -
we drove right passed it because it is in an industrial area
and is, in fact, a renovated shoe factory.
How fun is this front desk?!
And a giant scrabble board in the lobby!
LOVED this room!
We actually stayed here two different times during our trip -
Our place in Cape Cod
was actually a condo - with two bedrooms.
and kitchen -
So lovely -
and so much room!
They had two pools [inside and out] and huge lawn with fire pit -
Right on the beach!
A really beautiful place -
We may be planning a trip back there
when we have time to stay and relax a bit more!
We stayed at a sweet little boutique hotel in New Bedford
that was in the middle of down town.
It had a nice lounge area in the lobby area...
Cool stairwells and hallways...
And was very loft-like, and fun.
And of course, we stayed at the conference hotel while Craig was working -
Not Choice, but hey -
We like Hilton properties too!
But I digress --
The best part about points?
We were gone ten days... stayed in some GREAT places...
and only paid for ONE hotel room.
I'm telling ya -
I'm not getting paid to endorse them in any way -
But I think if you travel even a little,
you need to check out Choice Hotels -
