Watch That Hotel Bill

Chris Woodyard at USA Today (is it me or does he indeed look slightly like a thinner John Edwards?) explains that during the last few years, hotel prices on their way up met airfares on their way down. His logical conclusion is that you'd better pay attention to the overall cost of a business trip rather than be obsessed with just the price of your flight. And then there are plenty of costly extras like outrageous parking fees, telephone and internet bills that would make sense if the cabling was gold-plated, and $5 water bottles. According to the article it's now hard to find full-service hotels for less than $150 a night. What happened to American affordability?

Using a scheduled airline search engine to find a cheap flight from an independant is better than some of the traditional online travel retailers!

It's true about the hotel prices moving higher and higher. Washington, DC, in particular, has skyrocketing hotel prices, and New York's hotel prices are moving up, too. Boston is not quite as bad as these cities, but hotel prices up here are going up, too.

Even though it's not the most appealing choice, hotels near airports or just outside of major cities are probably the best bets at this point.

If you're willing to stay outside the city centre, a cab or metro ride away, there are tons of affordable options in major cities. Stay in Brooklyn instead of Manhattan, or Alexandria instead of DC. You won't lose much time and you'll get better deals.
