This post was inspired by noticing that Hotel Tonight (the app) is classifying the Hyatt House Plymouth Meeting PA and the Hyatt Place King of Prussia as "Basic" even though plenty of other HP and HH properties get "Solid" ratings, including the Hyatt House King of Prussia. And I certainly appreciate all of these Hyatt properties, with their feather pillows and down duvets, more than most other "Basic" properties (e.g. a Best Western). Have any of you seen hotel rating systems that you really like? Ones that convey something that's really helpful to you? One of my favorite bad systems is Priceline's, which at least used to be based on the extent of on-property food service. There were other standards (e.g. has to have a hair dryer), but the biggest difference between star levels was whether or not the restaurants were open for three meals a day and whether or not a property had room service. But I've never seen something that tells about the quality of a hotel's bedding or the standard of maintenance and cleaning.
