My Most Memorable Hotels of 2012

Posted by on December 16, 2012

Hotel Room of the year: Airport Holiday Inn, Newark

For the second year in a row, I’m posting the list of my most memorable hotels of the past year.

As before, this list isn’t necessarily a list of the “best” hotels. I don’t go out of my way to find hotels to review and I’m not a hotel reviewer. I don’t have a checklist that I go through in each location. My list ranges from luxury hotels to youth hostels. I would recommend all of the properties listed, but often for very different reasons. I stayed at least one night in every one of the locations listed. Simply visiting a hotel is not sufficient to get put on the list no matter how cool the hotel might be.

My choices when I look for accommodations are almost always pragmatic. I don’t really care about luxury rooms and usually just want something clean with good interent. Some of these were paid for by myself and some of them were comped. The vast majority of comped rooms I got did not make this list.

Without further ado, here are my most memorable hotesl of 2012!
