Hotel Rooms for Visiting Guests

Are you hosting a family gathering during the upcoming holiday season? Perhaps, you don’t have enough space in your home for all of your visiting, out-of-town family members to stay. If you can relate to this scenario, consider renting hotel rooms for some of your loved ones to stay in during the holidays. Before booking rooms, talk with your family members in order to assess their needs. For example, you might need to rent a room containing two queen beds and a baby bed for a young family. Or, you may need to secure a handicap accessible room for an older relative. Booking a hotel that offers a complimentary continental breakfast is a good idea. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of renting hotel rooms for visiting family members this holiday season. Enjoy!

Traveling To San Diego Comic-Con? How To Find A Refreshing Home Away From Home


Whether you're an attendee or a professional attending San Diego Comic-Con, having the right place to stay while at the convention can make a world of difference in your enjoyment. 

But how can you find just the right spot? Here are 3 great options from places to stay in the area, and what they can do for you.

Convention Hotels

Just like any convention, San Diego Comic-Con contracts with several nearby hotels to provide rooms at a convention rate. The best advantage to staying in the official hotels is that they are close to the convention center and there are convenience shuttles to and from the con.

The downside is that they are often more expensive due to proximity to the con and the fact that they are located in the hub of the city. And competition for rooms can be intense. 

Vacation Rentals

If you don't like the hotel experience or you're looking for a less expensive option, short term vacation rentals could be just what the doctor ordered. Many local San Diegans rent out homes or rooms during Comic-Con weekend to earn extra money. You can take advantage of this and find a much more relaxed, homey environment to spend the week.

Vacation rentals may not have all the enticing add-ons and conveniences of other places to stay, so they might not be your style if you're looking for a pampering vacation. But, if you just want to feel like you're returning home after a long day of lines and panels, a cozy home in a quiet neighborhood may be more enticing. 

Nearby Hotels

Just because a hotel isn't part of the official convention arrangements doesn't mean you can't stay there, of course. If you're willing to walk a little farther or make your own transportation arrangements, choosing a place to stay that's a little more distant can save you a lot of money. 

Before booking a nearby hotel, research your transportation options. San Diego offers an excellent bus system that includes a light rail line (called the "trolley") that goes straight to the convention center. If you can find a place to stay near a station or bus stop, you may find that it's nearly as easy to get to and from the con as it would be on official shuttles. 

Clearly, there are many different choices when it comes to places to stay for San Diego Comic-Con. And by considering all your options, you can find the perfect place to hang your hat while indulging your inner nerd.
