I'm generally pretty easy-going when I travel, and am open to a variety of places and experiences. I tend to gauge my enjoyment of an accommodation, restaurant or attraction by the level of courtesy and hospitality of its staff.
I'm always curious about regional foods and innovative dishes. I prefer independent and "mom&pop" restaurants, especially if there's something unique about them.
I prefer to stay in a small hotel or a B&B, but I will splurge on a posh hotel now and then, especially if it's unique in some way.
I make an effort to support locally owned businesses, when I can.
