Hi, I didn't see a previous thread on this topic, but I apologize if this has been discussed previously. I travel a lot for pleasure (unfortunately, no expense account) and I was curious what are your favorite cities for booking one night stays, given that you'll actually stay in the hotel? My preferences: 1. Wide variety of high quality hotels at major chains (Hyatt, SPG, Hilton, Marriott, Intercontinental, etc) in order to rack up whatever promotion is offered at a given time. 2. Not too expensive (under $150, or perhaps higher if good value/discount). 3. Prefer cities that are walkable or can be traveled via public transport. Car rental, gas, and parking charges can really affect the budget. I think Chicago is my favorite if you bargain hunt, but I am very curious to hear your choices.
