What kind of traveller are you? Take our quiz to find out
The travel-savvy city slicker always has their bags packed and is ready to take advantage of last-minute deals. One step ahead of the curve, you know all about the latest exhibitions and the hottest new openings. You thrive on exploring and that’s why your hotel needs to offer easy access to the main sights and attractions. It also has to be more than just a base – the city slicker wants style and substance. Look for unique hotels that are bursting with character and luxurious flourishes, such as Italy’s fresco-filled five-star Grand Hotel Palace Rome, which is located on the fashionable Via Veneto, or the loft-inspired Studio M Hotel in Singapore’s downtown entertainment precinct of Robertson Quay.

Mostly B: The outdoor adventurer
From hiking to hang-gliding, your holidays are all about embracing adrenaline-fuelled activities. You want stunning countryside and picture-perfect views. However, just because you plan to spend your days out and about doesn’t mean you won’t want to spend the night somewhere comfortable – this is why the Copthorne and Kingsgate hotels situated throughout New Zealand are your perfect travel match. Aimed at the value-conscious traveller, the affordable rooms mean you’ll have more money to spend on daredevil antics. These are also positioned in some of the most scenic locations in the country, such as the Copthorne Hotel and Resort Lakefront (open year-round), which has Queenstown’s sparkling waterways and snow-capped mountains on its doorstep.
Mostly C: The work hard, play hard
Your schedule might be filled with business meetings, but that doesn’t mean you are immune to the charms of your destination. The work hard, play hard is exactly that – getting up early to hit the gym and staying up late to make the most of your surrounds. Location is also key – your hotel has to be close to a central business district, government offices or corporate headquarters, while having conference rooms and flexible meeting spaces, too. The Millennium brand offers a number of modern business hotels that meet these requirements, such as the Millennium Hotel Sirih Jakarta in Indonesia. This hotel ticks a list of corporate essentials – close to the airport, speedy internet connection, luxury business suite – and it’s close enough to Jakarta’s famous textile market so travellers can immerse themselves in local life after office hours.
Mostly D: The lounge lizard
Getting away should mean just that: an opportunity to escape the stresses of everyday life with a relaxing holiday. A seaside location or a tranquil swimming pool and an enticing menu of spa treatments are all a priority for the lounge lizard looking for their perfect getaway hotel. Appealing to luxury travellers, the resort hotels from the Millennium brand can offer just that. Thailand’s Millennium Resort Patong Phuket and its world-class Escentika Spa allow world-weary travellers to immerse themselves in tropical surrounds, while the pace of life slows at the tranquil Millennium Resort Hangzhou in China, where travellers can take it easy among tea plantations and ancient forests.
