    As soon as I return home, I have a couple of fairly extensive trip reports to post. Here's the question: Are prices relevant, especially for lodging? Is it useful to the reader to know what the price paid for the room was when evaluating elite treatment, etc? Is it tacky? Soon outdated? Too much information? Thought I should know what folks thought before posting. Travel was overseas; lodging largely Hyatt and SPG.

    I don't think it is tacky at all. Some may find it useful information.

    I think it is fine putting as much information in a TR as you are comfortable with. Of course, depending on what you paid for things, you may get a "Wow! How did you get that fantastic price?" or "Oh no ~ you should have paid only half that amount." comment ... but it is all good information :)

    The more information the better. It helps other make better decisions. I always appreciate when posters include prices as it helps to define the overall value received during a stay.

    I concur - share as much as you can and as much as you feel comfortable sharing. :)

    I concur With the above, but would add that bc others may lack the appropriate etiquette if you have spent lots of money or spent in a way they would not, there may be questions or comments seemingly inappropriate, but posted anyway . You might want to refer to the type of rate or deal used rather than actual dollars, IMO. All info provided is appreciated to help others make their travel decisions.

    I tend to chuck a lot of info in so people have references to look at. The only things I don't tend to disclose is if I'm on a Corporate or Conference rate - that's out respect of the establishment and the event I'm at.

    Otherwise - everything is open season - including how I've got cashback, what discounts applied, etc..

    let us know! but also let us know if there was some super great fantastic promo rates going on, so that we're not disappointed when we try to recreate your pricing.

    Please share. I've never understood why more people don't. I agree, it helps in evaluating the options for personal travel down the road.
