One of the largest issues with travel is ensuring that you have someplace decent to stay at during your travels. Hotels can easily be a hassle even with a five-star rating. Larger ones tend to be packed with constant bustle and sound. People moving everywhere can make it hard to actually get rest in such hotels even if the accommodations are wonderful.
