Hotels Are So Passe, Alternative Lodging’s The Thing

Britt.... we miss you down here in Buenos Aires. Great piece and I love the El Almacen one, too. Besos enormes!
Hotels are fun at first, but after the second and third, you begin to realize they are all the same, same, but different.
As a kid, I almost never remember my parents having us stay in hotels. They always rented vacation homes or apartments when we traveled, so when I started traveling on my own staying in a hotel was a novel experience. Now that I've done the 'hotel thing' though, I'd much rather find an apartment, cottage or couchsurfing host. Staying outside of a hotel makes it a lot easier to live more like a local and get away from any main touristy areas.
