As much as I tend to lean toward staying at an Airbnb, there are times when it simply makes more sense for me to opt for a hotel:
If I’m attending a wedding where the couple reserved a hotel block (the discounts can be steep, and it’s more convenient to get to and from the venue)
If Airbnbs are limited in the area and they would be a hassle to get to (this was the case for my recent trip to Iceland)
If I simply want a seamless vacation (there’s nothing wrong with wanting housekeeping and a super easy check-in — and out — process from time to time!)
If I find a great deal on a boutique hotel through HotelTonight or Booking.com
