To determine the best hotels in the world you have to consider many factors, not just the great buildings. Some of the factors to consider are: the location, facilities, services, food and the over all nature of the hotel. Indonesia, in Asia, stands out as one of the countries with the best hotels. Many of the world class hotels are found on the beautiful Island of Bali. Some of these hotels are:
Four seasons Resort Bali at Sayen, this hotel has about 60 rooms. The highlights of this hotel include: The Sacred River Spa, The yoga class, temple tours and view of Ayung River.
Nihi Dumba Island, Alilia Manggis Bali, Amandari Bali and The Mulia Bali are other amazing hotels in Indonesia. Fishing with the locals is common among guest.
I will recommend 1South Beach Hotel in Miami. The hotel is eco friendly. It takes clues from nature. The hotel is located at 2341 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, Florida. The rooms are nature inspired with organic cotton bed sheets, curtains and clothing hangers. The Windows in a room offer beautiful views of the beach. The hotel offers taps and showers that have triple clear water filters, you get to save money instead of paying for every bottle water you consumed.
Their staff have good service. The highlight for me is that the hotel gives back to the community, they use local vendors and artisans to offer services to the guest in another hospital. This eco friendly hotel also gives back to the environment.
Only a poor quality hotel will have a lot of bed bugs. A top quality hotel will do all that is possible to maintain a good name, excellent reviews and high rating, it is rare to find a bed bug in a five star hotel. I believe hotels do not have more bed bugs. In order to avoid a bug bite or avoid taking the insect home, follow these tips:
Put your bags in the bathroom when you enter the room so you can inspect the room.
Inspect the mattress, bed sheets. Lift the mattress, check underneath for a bed bug. Before leaving and as soon as you get home, check your things to be sure you have not carried the insect.
If you find a bed bug, report it and ask for a new room.
The common way to find cheap room in a particular hotel is to visit standard booking site like Expedia, hotels.com, booking.com and Orbitz. You can also sign up for membership discount, many booking sites provide discount on hotels.

You can also book someone else's reservation. RoomerTravel.com is one site that allows sales and purchase of hotel reservation. You can buy a reservation that a person no longer needs. This booking comes at a cheaper price.

Most business meetings are held in an airport hotel. An airport hotel is just one of the many types of hotels. As the name implies, an airport hotel is the one that is located very near to the airport. Thus, it is in close proximity to the non-residents of the town who land in.
Usually, there is a shuttle that would take the people who land in to the airport hotel. These shuttles usually operate between fixed intervals that are usually half an hour apart. Some shuttle service also operate on demand, however, they are more likely to charge a small fee.
If executives of a national trade association were to hold a meeting of this length and magnitude, it would make sense to hold it in an airport hotel. Pick a date, have everyone fly in the night before. Have the meeting the next morning, and give them the afternoon to go see the city if they’ve never been there before. Fly them home the next day - a three day affair to accomplish what they need to at that meeting.
Granted, some may not be able to get early flights. In that case, an afternoon or evening meeting might be better. However, having it at an airport hotel will cut down on how far the participants have to go to get from their hotel to the meeting. If everyone stayed at the same hotel, they wouldn’t even have to leave.
