The massive land block that many people call North America, consists of not just the United States, but also Canada to the North and Mexico to the South. Within these countries, it is impossible to find as total a divergence of cultures, geographic and climatic conditions than any other continent in the World.
Throughout the history of modern times, people have travelled within these states, cities and towns in North America, either on holiday or business. Each and every town or city have their hotels, and every hotel that you will find there will have something different and special to offer their guests. From the largest hotel chain, with branches in every major city within Canada, the US and Mexico, to the small, often family owned and run hotel, there is a hotel room there for everybody, to suit every taste and budget.
Over the years, the business or holiday traveler has become more discerning in their tastes, and amenities and standards have been gradually increased to meet the demands. Standards of cleanliness are strictly adhered to, and the visitor to any hotel in North America should be instantly impressed by what they find when they first set foot in the hotel lobby. From the efficiency and friendly approach of the reception staff, to the bell boy, room service and chambermaids, all these people should be professionals in their own right. Most hotels these days have an in house restaurant; with some of the larger ones have two or even three. Many hotel guests, especially business travelers, like to enjoy a meal in their hotel after a hard day on the road. Hotels that thrive to provide the best of service, pride themselves in the quality of their cuisine and professional service they provide.
For family orientated hotels, there should be some entertainment facilities laid on. Most medium to large sized hotels should have a swimming pool and spa, with a health club also becoming a popular feature these days.
People who have the chance to stay in a hotel on holiday usually find it a pleasant experience as it is firstly a change of scenery, and a pleasant place to relax. For the business traveler, who can spend up to 100 nights away from their own home every year, a good, clean and comfortable hotel is a must.
