You can always just buy that hotel.com credits, just be careful about the scams that happen regarding these, as there are gift cards that were bought using stolen credit cards. If they detect it was fraudulently acquired they can cancel the credits on your account. Just do you due diligence on these things as there are plenty of scams with these.

You can book directly in a well known travel site like https://www.expedia.com/ , https://www.cheapair.com/ , https://btctrip.com/ . I will not recommend dealing with travel bookers here who will offer you a discount because it may only cause you complications. It's best to book directly in one of the travel site I have mentioned and you can easily request what you want and what you need in their support. Beware of newbies account which will try to offer you a service around here in the forum ( I am sure there will be some ) make sure to background check and ask for previous works if you will deal with them.

Maybe look into a Visa or MasterCard funded with Bitcoin like the Xapo one? That opens up your choices massively. I don't really see the point of settling for a deal just because it's payable in BTC when there are probably a million better options out there with fiat.

Websites that offer hotel rooms don't want to mess with bitcoins. You need to search for rent private apartments and to talk to the owner. Although the problem you can always exchange your bitcoins for coins.

I also agree with you. There are lots of trusted services that offer virtual/physical bitcoin  visa/mastercard debit cards ( complete list here : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1410577.0)
It takes few minutes to set up a new card, and then load it up with some btc's and you can use it at any merchant that accepts debit cards.

Edit: Found this site : https://btctrip.com/ on google. hadn't used it though.
