Sometimes you just want someone to clean up after you on vacation or you want an awesome view. Marriott has some wonderful locations, with a few different brands to choose from to help you splurge or save money. Check out their website for a full list and the book your next hotel. 

Hostel World

Forget everything you know about hostels, they are safe The best hostel accommodation site out there with the largest inventory, best search interface, and availability. I use them for my bookings and they are an official sponsor of this website.

Secret Escapes

Want to stay in a High Rise in Bangkok or secluded retreat in Napa Valley? This site has it all. I loved the Lower East Side Boutique Hotel I stayed at because the location made me feel like a local. I suggest signing up to get their emails because they do not send notes too often and you can get some great deals that way, besides it can give you some vacation inspiration. (When you book with my link, you will get $40 towards your first trip, enjoy!)


Traveling like a local means staying like one too and this site it great for doing just that. You will get all the comforts of home, the chance to stay in a local, non-touristy part of town, and pay a fraction of the cost of a hotel room. This site is the alternative to staying at a chain hotel and  connects with homeowners who rent out their homes/apartments to you.

Voyage Prive

Do you have no idea where you want to go, but you want to go somewhere you and none of your friends have been to? Then this is the perfect site for you. While most places are a pricy, you will definitely see some spots on here you would not have otherwise considered. Check it out.

Hotel Look

I love love love this site because it allows you to find and compare worldwide hotel prices, which most of the time you cannot do if you are trying to find something obscure internationally. HotelLook provides aggregated information on more than 250,000 hotels in 205 countries working together with more than 10 online reservation systems such as,,, and Expedia. This site also helps you decide when to stay, with color coded dates to show the most cost-effective days to stay. Check out the app too, it is very easy to use. iOS and Android.
