Or perhaps I should say in "small town" USA....? I realize that Starwood picks its markets with care as they seem to be wanting to be big in the higher-end segment of the business... however, for those of us that need to travel deep into the less large cities of the USA, Starwood is quite hard to find. As a contrast, Hilton seems to be all over the place.... I have a trip coming up that will take me to Corpus Christy and McAllen (both in TX) and St. Francisville (LA), and will not be able to park at a SPG property. I wonder why Starwood doesnt see it fit to also have a "economy" brand like Garden Inn.... Hilton does and I would guess they are able to keep that part of their business profitable.... in any event, strictly from a coverage perspective, HHonors seems to be a lot better on the map than Starwood.... or is there something Im missing...?
