The new marketing campaign/trend is great for the on-paper potential profits of hotels and businessmen whose bosses foot the bill, but beyond that, we're left shrugging our shoulders. Does this have any leisure-travel benefits?
Perusing the web, we found that while some airport hotels in New York City are under $100 for the day, most rates are solidly in the triple digits (btw, $80-$90 for a few hours in a basic airport hotel is nothing to celebrate).
It totally makes sense for business travelers, but can the everyday person come up with enough reasons to drop this kind of dough for a nap and a shower? When faced with a long layover, perhaps, although there's always a day pass to an airline lounge, kicking back at a coffee shop, or straight up exploring-the-hell out of your location.
A hotel room sounds comfortable and private, but wethinks by the time you begin to really appreciate the amenities, you're already out the door, and have paid a steep price.
Are we biased? What do you think? In what scenarios would you consider these day rates worth the price tag? Let us know in the comments below.
