I have traveled more than 200 nights per year for almost 20 years. I have 'status' with most hotel chains, but tend to prefer Intercontinental, Kimpton, Four Seasons, Mandarin, W, etc. (I used to be a Hyatt loyalist, but have waned in recent years). I am AA executive platinum and United 1K. My travel is 70% domestic, and 30% overseas. I am frequently in China and Europe.
I love to travel. I am not a high maintenance customer, but love warm and inviting hotels with a comfortable and VERY clean room experience. I tend to notice the smaller things, like someone remembering my name. A touch of sincere customer service can mean so much more than glamorous lobbies, and extra room amenities....although the combination of all is best! :)
I am a loyal traveler, and tend to return to hotels that i love, while occasionally checking out the competition for fun.
