Summer means vacation and for big families they also are annual reunions.  While costs are divided up between families, you can make the costs easier for all by suggesting you book connecting rooms instead of a traditional suite. These are hotel room configurations where more than one bedroom is connected to one another, either via a common area, small corridor, or a door that opens up between them. Each room of a connecting suite also has a door that opens out to the main hallway so guests can go in and out without bothering the room they’re connected to. Also, connecting rooms guarantee that each room has their own private bathroom, whereas some suites may only have one. But perhaps the biggest selling feature is the cost.  Analyzing data, connecting rooms are typically half the price of a traditional two-bedroom suite. For example, a weekend stay in a two-bedroom suite in a major U.S. city costs about $2,665 on average. A connecting room, on the other hand, only averages about $1,484, which is a savings of $1,181. Almost every hotel has connecting rooms and connecting suites, but they may not be listed on third-party booking sites, so check with the hotel front desk directly. These types of rooms are popular so be sure to call for a connected room far ahead of time and don't hesitate to book early if you want to save some money.
