Based on your experiences, do you agree with this report? Which hotel chains are your favorites?
Drury Inn & Suites is the best hotel chain!
During my working Career, I stayed at a lot of Marriott Hotels and gathered a lot of points. All were good.
With those points we stayed at Marriott Budget Brands… Fairfield and Courtyard also good. We liked the Fairfields best… fewer points and free breakfast!
I also stayed at a Hyatt. They were offering a special weekend at any Hyatt if you had 6 stays. I asked if I could get credit for 2 stays if I stayed the whole week. NO!!!
So for 3 weeks, it was Monday Night at Hyatt, TW back at Marriott and Thursday at Hyatt. We enjoyed our weekend in San Francisco… then!
Hyatt is similar to Marriott but with fewer hotels… tougher to amass points.
Wyndham… surprised they did that well.
They have a lot of scuzzy brands that were not that good in their prime. Days Inn was never great. LaQuinta started out good but went downhill fast. IMHO, Wyndham should start a new company and move their best or worst hotels to it.
I used to love LaQuinta when they were independent. I stay in one in Pinellas Park, FL when I visit my cousin in early March. The franchise owner managed it before and now. I asked him how Wyndham was doing. He told me he was not happy with them at all.
My go to is Best Western.
It has been a while, but I do not ever recall staying at a BW that had Interior corridors.
BTW, I use to prefer parking right outside my room.
But see the security and value of Interior Corridors even if check in/out requires more effort.
Actually, the BW’s I have stayed in all have interior halls. I’m often on my motorcycle (Harley) and I always request a room I can look out to my bike. BW’s usually have a breakfast, some better than others. The one I stay in in North Myrtle Beach is my favorite, right on the ocean, great breakfast and one block from a classic Irish Pub with Guinness and Shepards Pie!
