  What hotel would you happily recommend to anyone? Why? 
I once stayed at The Saugerties Lighthouse  located on the Hudson River in Saugerties, NY. It was originally built in 1869 and is now used as a museum and bed and breakfast.  It is recommended to arrive before three in the afternoon since high tide tends to flood the trail that you have to hike along to get to the lighthouse. In the morning, the innkeeper makes a fresh breakfast and if you’re lucky, which we were, they might take you exploring. We got a lovely candle lit tour of an old mansion that was being renovated across the river.
 
I’ve been using Airbnb to travel though and I love it! I recently rented an apartment in Paris with a friend. This is how I’d like to travel from now on. It gives you the chance to meet new people, discover new neighborhoods and see how other people live. Plus it’s affordable!
