There are plenty of options for saving money on lodging. If you want top notch service, though, you can often get it at an affordable price by staying at a newly launched hotel.

Over at Refinery29, Travelzoo's senior editor, Gabe Saglie, explains why new, unreviewed hotels offer a solid bang for your buck:
"So many travellers are brand loyal, which can negatively affect recently opened hotels trying to lure new and repeat guests. When guests book at new properties that want to grow a dedicated fan base, those hotels may be more willing to offer upgrades to get people talking about their property" -- not to mention repeat business.
I've found that those hotels are often cheaper, too. Demand isn't as high, for one, but they're sometimes still undergoing construction, which is a turn-off for potential guests. Sure, there are downsides -- you might have added noise, the hotel might still be working out its kinks -- but it's a decent option if you want to save money without forgoing comfort.
