Of course you get a little extra room and often a little extra luxury when you book a suite, but what other perks can you expect? Some hotels deliver on the suite perks better than others. Here are a few to add to your travel bucket list.

 

The Chatwal New York

If you stay in one of 14 Chatwal Crown suites, you can book insider experiences curated by a LOCALIKE tour operator. Some of the experiences in the past have included private workshops and tours at the world’s largest rooftop farm and exclusive tours of The Morgan Library and Museum. All experiences are themed.

 

GoldenEye

This James Bond-inspired Jamaican retreat was Ian Fleming’s former home. If you book the five-bedroom Fleming Villa, you not only get a private beach, but you can also book a showing of your favorite film in a private screening room.

 

La Reserve Geneve

Stay in a suite at this Swiss luxury property, but make sure you stop by in the summer months. Your personal assistant will gladly book you a private cabana by the outdoor pool so you can enjoy the views of Lake Geneva uninterrupted.

 

White Elephant

If you’re staying at the historic White Elephant in Nantucket, don’t miss the White Elephant Loft. This suite gives you great access to the local scene, but you’ll also have the opportunity to explore further afield, as you reserve the use of your own BMW hybrid SUV.

Online Resources for Finding Jobs Abroad

Many travelers are exchanging their regular home lives for a more exciting life abroad. However, no matter where in the world you visit, money is needed to live a comfortable life. Gaining work experience abroad can diversity a resume and open opportunities worldwide. For travelers who wish to live a more nomadic lifestyle, getting a short-term job in a country is also a great option. This will ensure travelers have enough money to get by and give them experience. Before leaving for a country or while in a foreign land, travelers can use the internet to find jobs or local resources.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
