I travel quite a bit for work and over the years I have stayed in some nice hotels and some crappy hotels.  Here is a list of Hotels That Don’t Suck and a few reasons why I like feel the way I do.  I should probably make a list of Hotels That Suck but for now I’ll stick with the ones I like instead.

Proximity to an airport is a big deal for me.  On site airport hotels tend to be more expensive but the time savings from not having to return a car and get to and from the airport along with the actual cost of a rental car, can more than offset having to pay $300 a night for a hotel room.
