Deletion and validity of this article
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)
I tried to edit this article, but there was a "conflict" since you also edited the article at the same time. I'm going to change the Accor paragraph. If you like it the way you had it before I did anything just change it. Sapphire 03:32, 30 Nov 2005 (EST)
Grand old hotels
A new user added this section with a link to a new article, so by the time this comment is written the new article may already have been created, but if not let's start out by listing "Grand old hotels" on the Hotels page, and only if the list gets long, complicated, or there is a consensus to create a separate article should a new article be created. One of the goals of Wikitravel is to have complete guides, which means avoiding lots of sub-pages when they aren't necessary. -- Ryan 05:33, 12 April 2006 (EDT)
