Etceteras: vacation inspiration with room 77

Thank you to Room 77 for sponsoring my post.

Room 77 is an intelligent and easy to use hotel search engine that allows travelers to find and book the best rates from across the Web in one fast and simple search.

Beach Inspiration Summer is over. School has started. Raise your hand if you took a fantastic vacation recently. Note: my hand is not raised. I did travel this summer but it wasn’t for a relaxing vacation – trust me, I came home exhausted. This year, I’m going to plan ahead and start researching for our next real vacation. And you know how much I love the beach and the inspiration it provides for creativity. Some of my favorite beachy projects are above.

IMG_0295aThis picture makes me realize how long ago this vacation was… uh, my son will be driving soon.

That’s what a vacation is all about!

So when I was introduced to a new trip planning tool, I couldn’t wait to check it out and start dreaming about our next trip.

Room 77 is an easy way to search for a hotel and find the best rates from across the web. You can search and book your hotel right on Room 77. Room 77 not only lists their best deals on hotels that meet your criteria; they also list their marketplace partners’ best prices, and whoever has the most affordable deal shows up at the top of the list.

You can use a variety of search criteria – whatever is important to you. Exclusive Room Concierge service, free breakfast, free parking, free wi-fi, airport shuttle and more. I searched for the best value at a hotel that offers free wi-fi. On my last “non-vacation” trip, the hotel charged quite a bit for wi-fi per day! I was irritated so this option is important to me. I mean, I need to stay connected with all of you, right? I also looked for additional AAA discounts – every little bit helps the budget.

Room 77 Tips
When I looked further at specific hotels, I liked the “Insider Tips” provided. There’s nothing worse than ending up in a room with loud street traffic or are above a train station (been there!).

Never wonder whether you’ve gotten the best deal on your hotel room again. Check out Room 77 when planning your next travel adventure!
