60 Hotel Reviews

[trip style = any]

{Editor's Note: Happy Thanksgiving to our USA readers and friends! Thank YOU for traveling at 37,000ft and on the ground with Trip Styler!}

Every time we stay at a hotel, we review it on Trip Advisor. Think of it like Friday's Roam+Board, but with the nitty gritty.

Here's an excerpt from last January about why we review hotels: "It’s always nice to know if a friend or someone you trust liked or disliked a hotel you’re thinking of visiting. This way, you know if it’s worth the visit, mirrors your preferred trip style, or is on-par with the perceived value you’re seeking."

{Trip Styler Tip :: Trip Advisor is an excellent travel resource, but take everything with a grain of salt. I usually skim 10 - 20+ reviews to get a good feel for a property and glean from traveler insight. Focus on the reviews that are more balanced than ranty, compare traveler pictures with the hotel's website pictures and pay attention to the reviewer's stats and stays. For example, if a reviewer has only written about one stay or even one type of stay---ie all 5* or all 3*---it's probably best to read other remarks as well.}

In a few days Trip Styler will be turning two years old. During this time we've reviewed 60 hotels, and over the next two weeks we'll be adding the Viceroy Palm Springs, the Ace NYC, the Marriott Aruba and the Fairmont Dallas to the mix as well.

Our reviews represent every trip style from camping in Tofino, BC to glamping in Kenya, and a budget-conscious 3* stay in Bellevue, WA to a luxury 5*+ stay at a property Oprah visited in Australia. Not only do we write about varying your trip style, we live it too!

You can always find an updated list of our hotel reviews from Seattle to Sydney by hovering over Destinations in the navigation bar above and clicking on Trip Styler Hotel Reviews.

Trip Styler Hotel Reviews

Trip Styler's hotel reviewsIt's always nice to know if a friend or someone you trust, liked or disliked a hotel you're thinking of visiting. This way, you know if it's worth the visit, mirrors your preferred trip style, or is the perceived value you're seeking.

Beyond the free travel tips and hints provided at Trip Styler, over the past two years, we've also been working behind the scenes to meticulously review 60+ hotels---all of which are recent, not reviews from 4 years ago. Given we don't regularly post about the specifics of our hotels stays, we wanted to let you know we're always doing reviews with your future stay in mind.

Aside from the current list below, you can easily access the constantly updated hotel list by clicking on the Trip Advisor icon at the top right of the site!

Top 3 Hotels & Why Sorobon Beach Resort, Bonaire [review] Why? "To describe Sorobon Beach resort as ‘basic beachfront bliss’ doesn't even do it justice. The warm staff and well-kept facilities make it feel as though you’re visiting your friend’s island outpost where there are only a few orders to the day: hot beach, cool dip, snooze under palapa, watch geckos scurrying around; repeat."

Fairmont Mara Safari Club, Kenya [review] Why? "The scenery you see in the Mara is like you are watching a National Geographic high-def program, but it's real, and you're part of the show! Coupled with the luxury rooms and service at the Mara Safari Club, this trip was one of the highlights of my travel experiences!"

Wilson Island, Australia [review] Why? "Picture a place where fine wines mingle with coral sand, gourmet fare compliments shabby island-chic decor and each morning you wake up looking out toward an ocean that sparkles. Wilson is an eco-retreat that’s worth the splurge. With only 6 tents and an off-the-grid feel, the Island is the perfect host to the traveler who wants an idyllic Swiss Family Robinson retreat with extra, thoughtful perks like a champagne at sundown with fine cheese, crudites and crackers."
