About $140 for a 3 star in Scottsdale, Az during spring training. I had 2 nights free-which lowered my weekly average to $100.

I usually get Hilton Garden Inns or Hyatts under $60 via Priceline.

Other people's money: around $600 at Claridge's in London.

My money: as best I can remember, $302 at Casa Fuster in Barcelona. I try to keep it around $200 and I stay in nice places.

I'm pretty sure that I've never spent over $200 a night although I can't remember the exact place where I've spent the most. I might be willing to spend $300-400/night if the place were an all-inclusive or otherwise offered every amenity I would need on-site.

About 110 for a mediocre room in a poorly maintained hotel. As you can guess, I didn't pick the accommodations. It was arranged for everyone in our group because it was one of the only hotels within a long distance of a wedding we were attending. Outside of that, my cap was about 80 bucks, and that room regularly went for 150 to 180. I find coupons, and I politely talk to the staff. Being polite helps Note: I normally spend around 50 to 60 for rooms that other people spend 80 to 100 for.

If the only rooms available for 150, I'd be sleeping in the back of my truck. I've got IRAs and 401Ks to fill up, I'm not wasting my money on one night in a fancy hotel.

Two are about the same amount.

Twice we stayed for two nights at Mweya Safari Lodge in Uganda. $300/night including all meals. Wedding anniversary. Worth it!

We stay at the Dubai International Airport Hotel (the only one inside the terminals) when we have a night-long layover. In GBP about 200/night depending on how long we stay. Stayed there 3 or 4 times. Worth it for a few hours sleep and a hot shower before our next flight.

$380 in NYC on NYE. I guess it was worth it for that.

Almost $500 for the Ritz Carleton in DC, Club Level. And I live in DC. Sometimes you just need a night away in luxury......

(helpful tip if you ever stay in a Ritz, they polish your shoes for free overnight.....bring your tall boots!)

100 $ for a two star in France, an underwhelming experience (compared to the 40 $ I paid for an awesome four stars in Bangkok)

$400? $500? In some very expensive cities.
Thank God for company expense accounts.

I'm not in my hotel room except to sleep and shower, so i prefer to spend my travel dollars on something other than a place to sleep.

I did once stay in a hotel where the rooms were $225 a night, and as far as I could tell, a nicer bedspread was the only upgrade. It was the same TV with the same cable, the same little table and overly hard chair, the same sort of scratchy small towels. The big difference was that it was the very worst maid service I've ever experienced.

They would make one bed and leave the other unmade. They would bring in fresh towels and leave the used ones dropped in a pile on the floor. One waste basket would be emptied and the other one left full.

The toilet ran and ran, loudly enough to interfere with sleep and it tool 4 calls to complain over 2 days to get someone on to fix it. It wasn't a simple fix because I tried to fix it myself before calling the complaint.
