While a hotel has conveniences your home traditionally doesn’t have (maid service, continental breakfast, room service, etc.), be honest when you think about how beneficial those conveniences are! You’re not at home in a hotel. You’re simply staying. Sometimes you might even feel like you’re in a fish bowl. The concept of ‘home’ is important. Washing your own dishes, making your own bed: it’s basically taking care of your home, the feeling that you’re making a space lived in. If you’re a family looking for a vacation spot in Orlando, Florida, consider an apartment rental; it’s a true home away from home.
Why is that so important? Orlando apartments have several other advantages. For one thing, you don’t have to worry about rates changing on you. Rent will always be the same every month. You don’t need to worry about tabs racking up fees and purchases such as room service, movie orders on the TV, things like that. There’s no day rate, so no pressure about your days adding up. Just straight-forward bills once a month and you know they’re coming! So you can plan ahead perfectly.
As convenient and friendly the maid service may be in a hotel, there’s something empowering and comfortable about never having to be interrupted by housekeeping every day in case you’re still in your room or suite. You’re in control of the quality of your own housekeeping. You do it the way you like, when you like. When you’re done with the dishes, the sweeping, the laundry, there’s your accomplishment–a clean apartment, all because of you. That makes it your home.
What’s important is you’re taking your home with you when you go on a vacation with your family. So why not make a home in an apartment? It’s plenty easier. In fact, it’s nearly impossible to do it in a hotel room. Because the fact is this: in a hotel, you’re simply staying there, not living there!
