The concierge services at hotels are great, but often underused. I like to talk to them every time I stay at a hotel for three main reasons:
- They give good recommendations for restaurants or things to do based on your preferences.
- If you already have a place in mind, they can tell you if it’s worth it.
- Restaurants commonly give hotels discount cards (or line jumping privileges) to give away to the guests.
You may be worried about them getting kick-backs for recommending places, which may happen sometimes, but in my experience they just want you to enjoy their recommendations, so it looks good on the hotel.
