I'm not by any means a budget traveler. I'm not harping on everyone to stay in roadside motels. I really like nice hotels. But with that said, what's the big deal with hotel suites? It's not like the difference between longhaul business class and coach, in which you're actively comfortable in the former (hopefully) and actively uncomfortable in the latter. That is a meaningful, significant difference. Particularly on redeye flights. But hotel suites...I just don't see it. I've been reading about them a lot because of Hyatt's inflated prices and then people always seem to be outraged about not getting a suite or in a tizzy over whether their award night will get them a suite and, again, I don't get it. Okay, sure, it was nice when I was staying at the Radisson Quito and my wife wanted to go to bed before me and I had a separate room. That was neat. But most of the time if I'm on a major trip, I care about the location, and the price, and the quality of the hotel, and definitely the comfort of the bed, but then I'm off to explore Paris or whatever. So if offered I would take the extra room, of course, but it just doesn't seem like that big a deal. So what's the fuss about? Is it just that part of us that wants to get some sort of "upgrade" of service, regardless of its utility? I understand that -- I was stoked to get upgraded on a CR7 from MSN to MSP, even though it really really didn't matter much. Or is there something I'm missing?
