Moderate Hotels

These hotels cost a little more than the budget hotels, but usually include some additional amenities. They normally provide a larger room with a larger bathroom, include free shampoo, body lotion and some other minor conveniences, may have a restaurant or cocktail lounge, and might even have a swimming pool, sauna or exercise facility. The prices of most hotels in this group seem to vary considerably from location to location. Prices can be very reasonable at less desirable locations or in highly competitive areas. Prices at the most desirable locations may be expensive. Be sure to check the web pages for special prices and promotional offers!
