I am a business / leisure traveler from the twin cities of Minnesota and often travel alone for work, and 3-4 times a year the entire family goes on vacations together. We mostly stay at the Marriott, but occasionally have loved the choices available through Airbnb. While traveling, I look for conveniences like basic necessities (nearby stores, local transportation, food etc.), Internet access, and parking (since I rent a car or get a chauffeur-driven one when I cannot drive on the wrong-side of the street - LOL). I am a clean freak, who craves decent accommodations and appreciates a host who takes care of their rental place.
