    Just for the record, Yes, I do care about the color, design and overall interiors of a hotel room! :)

    It does matter. However, more to a man than a woman, who knows.....

    I honestly can't even tell you the color of the drapes or walls from my last 3-4 hotel stays.

    I think I recall if the carpet is funky or "busy" (like what you generally see in the hallways of the Ritz Carlton) or if there's "unusual" patterns like those crazy Kimpton robes, but otherwise my best guess is that stuff was some kind of shade of "white" and maybe yellow or green or something.

    I honestly have no idea. :)

    I'm pretty sure my last hotel room had walls and drapes. Don't ask for details.

    I do not think they considered others factors, such as bar, beer, and bacon.

    What about the coordination of the window treatments, and the hand towels in the bath? Cannot discount those too.

    Yes, carpets were busy. Walls were a shade of beige, and then the ironing board had little flowers on it, IIRC.

    As long as the place is relatively clean.


    Although I have not had the pleasure of a Hotel with Pink walls and Curtains yet. Yellow (Sheraton Old San Juan) Dark Purple. (Planet Hollywood in Vegas.) and Tan and Brown (Brown Hotel in Denver) Other than that just make it clean and not smell like smoke.

    I am curious about how this "fact" was determined. How did they measure "care more"? What hotels were included? Care more than who? Children? Women? How many men and how many women responded? How about boys or girls? OK, I know I am exposing myself as someone who does research - but really, if I post that more men care about the color of the inflight magazine cover, would everyone just believe it?

    I searched for the study in academic journals but only found:
    Bogicevic, V., Yang, W., Bilgihan, A., & Bujisic, M. (2013). Airport service quality drivers of passenger satisfaction. Tourism Review : The Official Journal Of The AIEST, 68(4), 3-18.

    Welcome to MP.
