Independent's Day: The Small Hotel Advantage

ABSTRACT
 

"Again, the Web is your best bet. I regularly turn to hotel review sites such as hotelshark.com and tripadvisor.com before I buy. For example, in planning a recent family trip to Puerto Vallarta, I scoured consumer reviews of several different hotels before selecting the Camino Real. Detailed comments about everything from the private beach to the fact that the hotel filters its own water helped me feel I was making the right choice."
