Booking Your Hotel in Kendall: Top 10 Suggestions

When it comes to booking your hotel in Kendall, there are certain things you should consider. Understanding how hotel reservations work is an important key to helping you get the most from your travel accommodations. Here are the top 10 suggestions when booking your Kendall hotel.

1. Make Your Reservation Directly with the Hotel
It’s always best to contact the hotel directly. They may have discounted rates or special packages that you have not seen in advertisements.

2. Ask for Special Accommodations
If you want a room on a certain floor, near the pool, or in a quieter area of the hotel, make sure you request this ahead of time. Your hotel will have a better chance of arranging this for you if they know in advance.

3. Get a Confirmation Number
It’s good to have a confirmation number if there are any mix-ups when you arrive to check in at your hotel in Kendall. If you booked online, bring a printout of that reservation with you.

4. Know When to Book
You will find the least expensive rates for a Kendall hotel during the low-season summer months, and weekdays are usually cheaper than weekends. In the peak season, you may find small price breaks by traveling midweek rather than on the weekend.

5. Request a Rollaway or Crib at the Time You Reserve
This is important to do ahead of time if you need one. Otherwise, if the hotel is full, they may not be able to provide an extra bed or crib. These items may also not be allowed in smaller rooms due to fire codes.

6. Find Out the Check-in and Check-out Times
If for some reason your plans need an earlier arrival or later departure, you should set this up ahead of time. The hotel will either be able to accommodate your travel plans or offer you a half-day rate for the extra time, but they do need to know this ahead of time in order to set it up for you.

7. Arrange Your Transportation in Advance
Make sure you plan your trip from the airport to your Kendall hotel in advance. Cabs can be very expensive during South Florida’s peak season, so do some research on options for public transportation.

8. Check the Weather
South Florida has a rainy season from summer to early fall, so make sure you check the predicted weather conditions before planning your vacation.

9. Sign Up for a Rewards Program 
You may be able to do this when you book your room. Sign-up is usually free and you may be immediately entitled to all the various perks and discounts that membership offers.

10. Check for Affiliation and Other Discounts
You may qualify for additional hotel discounts simply by belonging to an association or organization. AARP and AAA are just some of the many examples.
