4 Features To Look For When Choosing Lodging Near The Baseball Hall Of Fame

Posted on

The Baseball Hall of Fame offers the perfect opportunity to visit Cooperstown, New York. You'll need a great place to stay during your visit that is close to all the attractions and of course the Hall. Here are a few features to look for when choosing lodging to accommodate your Baseball Hall of Fame visit:

Discounts at Local Outlets

Some hotels in the area surrounding the Baseball Hall of Fame offer discounts for local shops and restaurants that they have partnered with for marketing purposes and other reasons, so why not take advantage of them if possible? Even if it's just a 5% discount at a local eatery or 10% off drinks at a neighboring bar, you can save yourself a little money and put it towards your lodging costs. It's a good idea to ask about discount opportunities, because not all hotels, bed and breakfasts, and vacation rentals freely advertise their discount options.

Easy Transportation to and From the Baseball Hall of Fame

Hotels and other lodging options that cater to Baseball Hall of Fame fans should offer some sort of transportation to and from the Hall of Fame during the day. Whether it's a shuttle system, a bicycle rental program, or an easy walk, look for a place to stay that makes visiting the Hall of Fame easy no matter when you want to visit and how long you want to stay.

Complimentary Continental Breakfast

Any hotel or other lodging option that offers continental breakfast for free can help to save you a significant amount of money on your trip to see the Baseball Hall of Fame. While not a full traditional American breakfast, continental breakfasts typically include items such as pastries, muffins, bagels, toast, fruit, coffee, and sometimes orange juice and cereal. It's certainly enough to fuel your morning and get you through to lunch each day without getting bored with your morning options.

Various Community Amenities

No matter where you decide to stay, you should be able to rely on access to some amenities that will make your stay feel more like home such as a laundry room (if not an in-room washer and dryer!), a workout facility, walking and jogging paths for health, and security for safety. You should also have access to amenities that make your stay feel like a true vacation such as a swimming pool, a barbecue area, and a community meeting space. All these amenities can help ensure that you enjoy the best of both worlds — a cozy, homey stay and an exciting vacation experience.
