    A hotel room of her own — every day for 10 years:)

    Joy Bricker certainly tested the limits of the “extended stay” hotel. Ten years ago — on Aug. 4, 2001 — she checked into the TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Falls Church. Only now is she finally checking out.
    On Wednesday, Joy sat in Room 202 in an armchair — about the only piece of furniture that’s actually hers — and tried to explain why anyone would choose to live in a hotel.

    Same continental hotel breakfast for 10 years?

    My plan for retirement is to permanently move into a cruise ship cabin :)

    Certainly not 10 years, but I do see the same people for the past several years at one of the Hiltons I stay out on Long Island when I go back home......

    Amazing plans indeed, I guess the cruise ship would move around the world?:)

    I find this interesting, it clearly could be a clever idea!:) Have heard of people who live permanently in hotels!:)

    Well, there is the MS The World... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS_The_World but the "homeowners dues" of $20K/month make it a costly endeavor. Probably an inside cabin booked for $700/week per person is a better deal. Then change ships every so often to change routes.

    A co-worker of mine during the dot com melt-down (when hotel rooms in Silicon Valley were cheap) lived permanently in extended stay hotels that he pricelined. Changed maybe every other week depending on where he wanted to live and what offers were accepted.
