Planning a 3wk tour of some of south-western europe next year, and have no hotel memberships or affiliations. We'll spend time in France, Germany and Spain, and maybe Switzerland and Italy. I'm more inclined to stay in independent properties just in general, but wondered if there may be considerable incentive to choose one of the bigger operators. We'll be travelling in April and I'm thinking in terms of around the 150/night mark (AUD) on average. Any suggestions? Cheers.
