Vacation Rentals are not for everyone. We get it. Change is scary. Why try something new when the same old thing works out pretty well (usually)? It’s understandable that some travelers don’t want to take the risk and would prefer the typical hotel experience. After all, if it’s not broke, don’t fix it, right? Take a look at the list below to see if you’re the type of person who should just skip the vacation rental option:
You like room service: If you’re someone who does not want to cook your own meals while traveling and instead prefers to enjoy your food in the comfort of your own bed, you should stay in a hotel. Stay Alfred does not offer room service (although you can always order a pizza and there’s several grocery delivery services we’re happy to recommend).
You require daily housekeeping: We find that our guest generally like having the added privacy of not having a stranger poke around their living space when they’re not around. But if you like having new towels dropped off every day and need someone to make the bed for you, a hotel is probably the right move.
You’re scared of heights and/or elevators: Most of our vacation rentals are on the upper levels of high rise buildings, with lots of windows, expansive views, and even balconies. Not a good choice for acrophobes.
You hate downtown: All of our properties are located in the heart of downtown. If you don’t enjoy the hustle and bustle of a major metropolitan area, then Stay Alfred might not be for you.
You don’t trust technology: If you’re reading this blog post, it’s probably reasonable to assume you’re not a complete Luddite, but many people still prefer to do things the old fashioned way. Stay Alfred does all of our business online, accepts payment by credit card, and we even send you our free smartphone app with your arrival instructions. We might actually be robots ( ok, not really).
