Traveling is an essential part of life and one of the best ways to decompress from a hectic schedule. Households and businesses spent a total of $1.1 trillion on travel in 2019. Yet, according to Forbes, global travel plummeted in 2020 due to the pandemic, business travel shrunk by 70%, and leisure travel fell 27%. In addition, travel restrictions since March 2020 have slowly lifted due to high vaccination rates and declining COVID cases.
After picking your destination, the next step will come down to deciding what kind of accommodation you need? Where you choose to stay can be overwhelming, so it’s essential to consider your needs and avoid unwanted stress. An all-suite accommodation or vacation rental is an excellent option for every kind of traveler. If you’re not convinced, we’ve got even more reasons to stay in an all-suite or vacation property on your next vacation.
There is nothing worse than arriving at your accommodations after a long day of traveling to find out that you’re stuck with minimal space. Instead, consider staying in a spacious all-suite hotel room that guarantees you a living area and kitchenette or vacation property that includes desirable amenities like a washer, dryer, and air conditioning.

How do you recharge after a long day of exploring new locations? Are you a morning person, or do you like to stay up late? Do you want to have a set morning routine, or do you like to be spontaneous with your partner or family?
All-suite hotel rooms or vacation properties are perfect for those who enjoy a peaceful environment. With separate rooms for sleeping, living, and meal prep, a more significant accommodation alleviates the space issue and provides a great space to rest and recuperate. In addition, your partner and the entire family can stay together under the same roof, eat, relax together, and enjoy much more privacy and comfort.
The cost of traveling for pleasure can fluctuate, depending on your destination, transportation, lodging, food/alcohol, and entertainment. For example, the average price of a domestic vacation in 2021 was $1573 for one person, and for a family of 4, it would be close to $6500. Furthermore, the average hotel price in the USA is $103.25 per night.
Overall, Americans spend an average of $33 per day on food when on vacation within the U.S. In total, more than 80% of that amount is spent in restaurants. Vacationers spend about $27 at restaurants and an estimated $6 on the food they prepare themselves for each trip. Grab some groceries from a local store, and with a bit of preparation, you can plan for a delicious meal in the comfort of your kitchen after a day of sightseeing.
Limiting eating out will make a massive difference in your holiday budget and give you more flexibility to shop or spend on tourism. Besides saving money, this option is beneficial when traveling with kids, as you can prepare your child’s favorite homecooked meals and avoid unknown cuisine or picky eaters.
Access to a full kitchen
How do you intend to experience cuisine in a new country or culture? Do you enjoy dining out every meal, eating at local cafes, grabbing fast food, or a combination of all three? If you prefer cooking healthy recipes during your travel, an all-suite hotel room or vacation rental gives you luxury accommodations without the hefty price tag and impact on your nutritious lifestyle.
Many all-suites and rentals will provide kitchen essentials such as cutlery, dishes, pots, pans, coffee maker, and Danby appliances, such as a range and Danby 10.1 cubic foot apartment size refrigerator, which offers ample space. Avoid a sink full of dishes and go for a rental with a built-in dishwasher or a highly rated countertop Danby dishwasher. Look out for a rental with a Danby 5 in 1 multifunctional microwave oven with air fry and enjoy the benefits of 9 auto menu options along with heating baby bottles and leftovers. If you’re staying for an extended period or with a large group of people, opt for a rental with a second freezer such as the Danby Designer 14.5 cubic foot chest freezer, suitable for four or more people.
Washer and Dryer
If you’re traveling for more than a week, you’ll probably be considering packing additional clothing or getting a unit with laundry options. Staying in a vacation rental with laundry facilities gives you the advantage of packing less clothing and returning home with less soiled garments. Plus, your host may provide laundry detergent, dryer sheets, and other products to help you do laundry. Book an accommodation with a Danby 2.7 cubic feet all-in-one ventless washer dryer combo and avoid a mountain of laundry after your vacation.
