My biases? In a hotel, I favor charm over luxury and location over the number of stars.
These rarely are the "best" hotels in town for people on a business trip. On a vacation, it is more important for me
to know that there is a good cafe near-by than to have a fully-equipped business center.
The same for restaurants. They will not always be the most expensive or the most famous, but they
will be excellent examples of the local cuisine.
As to how to spend your time, I lean toward cultural and historic places. There won't be much
here on nightlife.
As I said, the choices are very personal.
