ShermansTravel experts know how to pick a good hotel. Whether in the budget, moderate, or luxury price range, the hotels we recommend always meet our highly selective criteria for what amounts to an unbeatable experience. We look at location, comparing the hotel to other offerings in the area; price range, determining where the hotel falls on the scale of affordability, and whether it merits the expense; and finally, experience, that all-important benchmark covering everything from aesthetics to service. We assess every aspect of the hotel experience, from beds and views to service and that indefinable thing called vibe.
