  1. Save money on food expenses. Eating every meal at a restaurant can get pricey. You can save considerable expenses by enjoying in-room cooking and dining. Plus, you won’t need to spend money on travel to and from the restaurant. Simply planning to enjoy breakfast in your room can reduce your travel budget by $20 per day per person.
  2. Eat healthier. While many restaurants now offer healthy options, you’ll be in full control of your menu when you cook your meals in your hotel room. 
  3. Feel more at home during extended stays. When you’re traveling for longer than a few days, you can enjoy the comforts of home despite being away from home for an extended period. Cook foods you’re familiar with and keep your budget under check no matter how long you’ll be staying. 

What’s the Difference Between a Kitchen and a Kitchenette?

A kitchen will feel like what you’re used to at home with counter space to prepare your meal alongside an oven and cooktop to prepare the food. But a kitchenette will have limited food preparation space and might feature smaller versions of the appliances you’re used to. It also might lack storage space, which will limit the pans, cookware, and dishware that the hotel can provide you with.

Kitchenettes offer the essentials but you might struggle to fully prepare a meal in the space. It will still work for heating up frozen dinners or storing fresh fruits and vegetables. Just be aware of its limitations when booking.
