I should never say “never,” but I guess I just prefer to have a hotel, where I am anonymous, where I don’t have to pay a deposit or cleaning, where I’m treated well… Where I have daily cleaning… where I can check in without any problem at any hour. Where they can call me a cab… where they can take my bags… where I can cancel free up to two days before, where I have free wine and cheese in the lobby by the fire nightly, … I dunno. Things like that.
I’m so happy with the hotel I found in DC. The price with tax was under $90 a night. I don’t see that option on Air in DC, unless it’s a shared space in someone’s house. I don’t want that kind of experience. Too many unknowns. I want to be in a hotel.
Honestly, if budget is a concern, I really don’t think you save that much money with Air… unless you are in specific destinations like Kona with few or none mid-level priced hotels… In fact none. Maybe two total that I can think of. The rest are expensive and have resort fees nightly.
