'expensive' hotels

300 €/$ + per night.
Yes I know some of you are crypto billionaires and this is poorfag, but for those who aren't - have you spent a night or two at an expensive hotel in a major city, and do you think it was worth it?

    Absolutely worth it if you can fully enjoy it or somebody else pays.

    I have a few times, mostly because work allows me to accumulate points to my personal account to offset the cost.

    Honestly? I can't find the justification for them outside of getting a good deal/using reward points to stay in them. Sure they can be nice if your vacation consists of wanting to just laze around the hotel for 20hrs a day but at that point why fucking travel? Some do have nice amenities for the location but that's a really case by case basis, while often not worth the excess cost compared to a mid range hotel+some basic planning.

    IMO it's like flying business or first on a plane, has it's usefulness and benefits but often so not worth the price unless it's like your one get away of the year.

    Yes, but I almost never pay full price, either got rooms for free thanks to reward programs or during low season/pandemic.
    The best part is the service. Like when my luggage was temporarily “lost” (missed the connecting flight) in Russia and the hotel entirely handled it, picked up my luggage at 3am and delivered to my room after breakfast. That sort of service is very, very welcome if you go outside of 1st world as all bullshit is handled by the hotel.
    Other than that, it’s a bonus but not an uttermost in 1st world. As long as the hotel is clean and well located, not too noisy, these are all I need.

      Me and a friend splurged on a Fairmont in Alberta. They literally tried to charge us a daily fee to use the wifi. I know they use it to penny pinch the corporate salary man who will charge it to his company but the fact that I actually had to aggressively complain about it to get it really pissed me off. I was also at a 5 star hotel in Seoul (forget the name) due to my company but it's honestly not worth it. 3 star is fine.

    Booked a 5 star hotel for our honeymoon in the city where we live.
    The plan was to spend 2 nights there, 1 after our wedding, then a day of relaxing, using their spa, and going for dinner in town before spending another night before catching an early flight the next morning to start the honeymoon proper.

    COVID put an end to us being able to stay there, so we had a voucher for £595 to use.

    We used it just last week, as we thought it would be a nice treat pre-Christmas. Given the prices of everything had now risen, we wher only able to book 1 night, plus dinner, plus breakfast plus spa usage for around £500. However, for the full price of the Voucher we got upgraded to a full Penthouse suite for the day.

    It was pretty nice to see how the other half live. Given we live in this city, we really didnt see the need to explore. We had dinner in the hotel, used the spa, made use of the massive room and bed multiple times and treated it as a nice R&R experience.

      Given the covid/voucher bullshit this is pretty circumstantial. Would you have paid £500 cash for the experience today?

        As you say, its entirely circumstantial.
        Would we ever pay £500 to stay in a hotel a 15min drive from our house, in the same city?

        No

        Would we treat ourselves to an expensive hotel whilst on holiday for 1 or 2 nights knowing what they offer?

        Yes.

        I honestly believe to maximise the experience you need to stay in the hotel and make use of its amenities as much as possible. Theres no point going to a 5 star hotel, paying out the ass if you are literally only sleeping in it.

        We relaxed, had sex, took 2 baths in the open plan room, we played cards on the bed, ordered breakfast in bed, had late check out, had more baths the next morning.

    I went to a couple of spa weekends with my ex, which is nice, and I've stayed in a few nicer hotels mainly through work.

    In general, it's worth it if you plan to use the amenities (spa, gym, bars lounge etc). However I've found it worth it to upgrade a room or get a suite. You end up with a slightly bigger, much more expensive room with a different bedspread.
    I'd consider it worth it for like on-suite jacuzzi or panoramas but those suites are generally $1000+and I've never tried any.

    So my recommendation if you want to try it is to get the cheapest kind of room.

    Honestly, I've done it multiple times due to me organizing events in expensive hotels (they usually give me a suite since i'm bringing around a thousand people to that event per year). Honestly, the only moment it's worth it is if you're planning to splurge on obvious extras, such as going to the luxury hotel downstairs, getting room service, getting your clothes and shit cleaned up, not having to give a fuck about doing the bed, and having snacks and shit at the ready at the minibar (usually in the high roller suites like the presidentials they give you free shit and a lot of it gets included).

    These services are not made for tourists. They're made for people who have to travel ALL the fucking time and become emotionally and physically exhausted by it (pilots, professors, execs, rich investors) and just can't have to go to every fucking local grocery store or restaurant to get what's needed because 1) they may not have the time and 2) they can't really be bothered. It's like the first class shit in airplanes where they get a few minutes of hot water. That's because the mfers are execs that probably will have a meeting around 3 hours from them landing and they don't want to look like they just had sex with a fat prostitute in the toilet a couple of minutes ago.

    If you're a tourist literally anything is better than going at the fucking hotel except maybe if the restaurant is good. And EVEN then, why bother with a globohomo michelin star restaurant that you can have at home when you're in a totally different part of the world where you can try actual traditional family-made cooking.

    If you really want a suite experience just to see what it feels like, just go to Vietnam. Fuck, even Taiwan where I lived had some pretty ridiculous prices for great hotels. We're talking 150 in november for a suite with a fucking jacuzzi. Used to do it with my ex just because she loved the idea of a breakfast buffet. You also meet rich people too, it's fun to pretend.

    It gets old fast.
    Also a lot of them are not that great on service, that’s where the big game changer is.
    Going from $75 a night to $$175 a night can be a huge jump, but going from $175 a night to $400 is barely an upgrade sometimes.
    I don’t know what you have to spend to get them to bring a snow ball fight or a pony to your room, but it’s at least double that

    >thinking $300/night is "expensive"

    Try $1000/night, or better yet $3000/night hotels. If your time is valuable, you like to experience extraordinary things, and you like anticipatory service, nothing compares to a nice hotel (especially chain). They employ the nicest, most skilled people, and you truly get what you pay for.

    If you're a low-value male, incel scumbag, OTA-using poorfag that populate sighsee going SEAmaxxing year after year (or worse actively choosing to live in a 3rd world shithole), then obviously you can't understand or appreciate any of this. If that describes you, then no amount of explanation will convey what nice hotels are like and why they are integral to the travel experience.

      Of course spending 3,000 dollars a night is going to be "extraordinary". Unsure of what your remaining screed is about or trying to address. I would say the majority of people couldn't appreciate (nor justify) such decadent spending.

      This, even Aulani (Disney resort in Hawaii geared towards wealthy couples with small children) averages $2000 a night. A Sheraton in a major city will be $300/night regular rate though you can usually cut that in half through primos, group/event booking and such.

    I think it depends if your alone or not, and basically what you're personally comfortable with. I've stayed in fancy hotels before alone, and I would say it was in ZERO way worth the money. But that's because I don't really give a shit about "service" and basically just lay in bed on my laptop drinking.

    HOWEVER, it was worth it when I was not alone with my previous gf(s). Basically the fancy place makes you all comfortable you have a good tike open some wine use the spa etc (basically it leads to sex).

    Honestly for my own comfort I really don't require much, I'm literally typing this from my phone lying on a top bunk in a yha hostel. I'm perfectly comfortable don't really need anything else. Of course the problem is I can't have a girl with me Iike this.

    So I would just say it's worth it to the degree that it undresses women. If you're alone then just get a hostel or cheap hotel. What does it matter? A bed is a bed pretty much and if it has internet connection then what more do you need?

      My taste became a lot more bourgeois when I got married—my wife has higher standards for comfort than I do, and we have enough money now that semi-expensive hotels aren’t a problem for us. I wouldn’t enjoy spending $1000+/night, but I can’t remember the last time we spent less than $200 except in developing countries, and in expensive cities we have very often spent a lot more than that.

      I have vivid memories of the moment my perspective shifted, back when I was still a young poor cheapskate backpacker. My now-wife insisted we move out of the <$10/night concrete cell with the bare lightbulb hanging from the ceiling that I had found for us in Thailand, and into the (maybe as much as $40/night?) hotel across the street. Fine, I admit it, yeah, this bed isn’t hard as a rock, and the lighting isn’t dismal, and it looks cleaner, and the hot shower and air-con do actually make me noticeably more comfortable. Better hotel wins.

      A similar logic applies to how we use hotels now. Spending more than the cheapest price available guarantees at least somewhat, sometimes far, better comfort and details. But eventually there’s a diminishing return in my opinion—most midrange/4-star/business hotels are totally boring, especially chains, and the luxuries you get in 5-star++ places and resorts can be fun for novelty or a special treat, but seem stupid to insist on. Most luxury amenities, maybe apart from fancy-pants showers and baths and high-end bathrobes that are guaranteed to actually be clean, are wasted on me personally.

      If you’re young and poor it can be a blast to splurge on a higher-end hotel and pretend to be rich for a few days. But as someone who is now old and sort of rich, I find that I get my favorite results from interesting smaller guesthouses or boutique hotels that are neither the most economical nor the most expensive.

      Good information.
      I'm a late 20s average earner and thinking about booking a (once off) circa €500 night stay in an upper class hotel in Tokyo. Plan is to take back a girl and really enjoy the amenities. Really splurge out for the evening and fuck all night. I don't really see the opportunity happening again, so why not?
      I also wouldn't spend that much if I was staying there alone, the rest of my time in Japan will be spent at a middle spec business hotel.

      A younger me would accuse me now of being a sell-out for choosing hotels over rougher elements. I don't bounce back like I used to, and having climate control is nice after being outside all day. Food choices are better as well

    It's only worth it if you are using everything the hotel has to offer, eg private pools, bars, spas, casino, restraunts, room service etc.
    Its good for things like honeymoons, or if you only get like 1-2 weeks off a year, spend 10 days in some average hotel and explore and do shit, then spend a few nights relaxing in luxury around a hotel that offers everything you need.
    Dont do it with kids, I never really appreciated it or cared.
    Dont do it if you are deciding between 5k on a nice hotel for 2-3 nights, or some awesome private tour/ experience you really want to do. Do the tour.
    Glamping is a meme. Bar some African ones where if you dont see the big game you came to see you get money back.
    Once a year I spend about 10k on a hotel for the weekend. Its good 3-4 days of peace and quiet, massages, cocktails by the pool, great food, some kind of entertainment,
    I'd suggest trying it it poor countries as 5 star expensive hotels there are cheaper than something like NY.

    Recently went to both a 5-star hotel and a big chain hotel (Hyatt) for the first time in my life
    Being used to airbnbs and cheaper 2-3 star hotels, the service surprised me greatly on both, i'd say that the Hyatt service was miles better but it was probably because the lady at the desk was actually from my home region
    The 5-star hotel had great views, and lots of amenities like spa, pool and gym that i promptly ignored to instead walk around the city i was staying, while the Hyatt was just to sleep before taking a flight (And damn what a great bed)
    Was is worth it on both cases? Yes
    Would i book again on a 5-star hotel? Maybe not, unless i get an insane deal like i got this time (Off-season plus reserved through the visa luxury hotel website, got two nights on a suite plus free breakfast for the same price as one night on a lower room tier without breakfast on the hotel website)
    Should you spend that much money on either a 5-star hotel or a big chain hotel? If you can, of course, you pay for the service and what the hotel offers to you, it might make more sense to stay on a 4-star or even a 3-star hotel, but the sheer luxury of a 5-star luxury hotel or even the name of a chain hotel means that you can be sure that you're going to receive quality, and if you don't, they'll make sure you do to keep either the five stars or the name that backs them up

    I never got it, sure if I get a good deal or the amenities are worth the cost I'll be down. Biggest complaint I have is how nickle and dime'd you often get at these places followed up by often being packed with Karen's. Unless your normal baseline hotel is that of say a motel 6 or days inn, you're generally fine with better chains.

      Same. I like having a private room when sleeping, but a hostel works as well. I got a system that blocks out all noise, so I sleep well. Even if I earned well I'd probably go for an economical private room with private bathroom. All that extra money spent at a fancy hotel could go towards restaurants where I will get better food than at the hotel and other things.

    I've always been to cheap hotels and before that I've been to youth hostels a few times before I got a full time job. I've watched a few videos showing how 5 stars hotels are like and they seem very comfortable but I don't see myself going to a place like this because most of the time I travel alone or with friends and we spend out time outside visiting places. I had dinner in a 5 star hotel because of a christmas dinner organized by the company and the food was disappointing though. I have no clue how the fuck you can make a duck pastilla bland, and yet here we are. Thank god I didn't pay for that shit myself.
