I prefer no-nonsense, comfortable hotels that are a good value. I'm not a fan of tours, though sometimes they're fun, and would rather design my own adventure or educational travel. I love meeting new people when I travel. Luxury hotels are a waste of money, though they can be fun for brunch or tea. You get the feel without spending a ton of money.
