I figure I should address this before anyone questions the validity of this article. I think I can make an excellent article out of this subject as we have done with Hostels, which is an article in itself.
I currently am a member of about 5 or six different hotel chains' loyalty programs and have stayed at many hotels in the past year. I would like to ask for about four weeks before this article is deleted, because my access to the web is very limited ( one or two days a week). Should by then we decide the work is not worth it please go ahead and do what the consensus is.
I am wondering how this article might evolve. My initial concern is its title is very general. What are we likely to write about here? What a hotel is , or isn't? The various hotel chains? Their loyalty programmes? The benefits and disadvantages of this type of accommodations?
Could some aspects of this topic be better covered by Wikipedia? Like the history, business and economic aspects. As the topic stands it is very broad. I would prefer a more explanatory title like Hotel chains' loyalty programmes. That said, I think what has been written so far looks interesting. Whether it is of value is another question. -- Huttite 01:11, 27 Nov 2005 (EST)
Actually, I have a semi-article sitting around on my hard-disk about what hotel star ratings mean, which I've finally added to main page. I agree with Sapphire that, as an extremely frequent hotel stayer, reviews of hotel chains in general are useful. Jpatokal 06:35, 27 Nov 2005 (EST)
