$800 a night at both a resort in Lake Placid New York and a luxury hotel in Rome. Wouldn't spend that much in Rome again--you can find great accommodations there for $350-450/night--would for the place in Lake Placid in a heartbeat.

Some of do all of the above.

I'm not a high roller, that's for sure. I stayed at a small hotel in Paris in the 15e arrondissement that was about 200 euros per night.

$350 at Hilton Austin, though I was reimbursed for that trip. When on my own or spending my own money, I don't like to spend more than $150 per night, and generally try to find much cheaper than that, be it a hostel or motel.

When travelling with family, my parents frequently spend over US$1000/night on hotel. I could never afford that kind of spending though.

My personal max has been around US$200-ish and usually only do that when I am staying in a hotel in a tall building with a good view - I am a skyscraper nerd, so I go out of my way to stay in tall buildings. Hotels I can think of that approached the US$200 range of the top of my head: Grand Hyatt Shanghai, Venetian and Grand Lisboa Macau, Swissotel Singapore, Shangri-La Bangkok, I once paid around US$200 for the Langham Place in Hong Kong but was disappointed to find out the hotel is the shorter building in the complex, Trump Tower Panama City, Mandarin Oriental Vegas, once paid around $200 for a hotel in NYC but I split it with someone else so not sure if that counts, I think all the hotels I've stayed at in Dubai have been in that range - it's expensive there. And probably many more hotels I've paid in that range. I've rented villas before in the US$200 range but that was just for the private pool, not sure if that counts.

If everything goes as planned on my next trip, I should shatter my previous record. I wanna stay at the Armani hotel in Dubai (Burj Khalifa) on my layover there - it is the tallest hotel in the world and like US$600+/night. Even if that doesn't work out I plan on staying at the Marina Bay Sands next time I go to Singapore which is like US$350+/night. So anyway it happens I am probably going to break my record within the next year.

About $300 a night for a hotel in the middle of San Francisco for a weekend during peak tourist season. I had to make the reservation a few months in advance to get that price. It was an old hotel without AC but in a good location.

About $350 per night at Disney. We typically stay at homewood suites or residence inn type places....normally about $120 per night. We like to go go go and spend minimal time in the hotel. If we were to do a spa type vacation, I would be willing to spend much more.

Most: $500/night at Hotel de Glace, Quebec City

On average I'm an $80 to $160 type of guy.

NYE in NYC in 2004. Hotel alone was almost $5000. ($800 per night and then $1600 on NYE) I had a room facing Times Square in the Marriott Marquis for the ball drop. It was amazing.

NYE in Las Vegas in 2005. We had a suite in Cesar's Palace. That was almost $4000. However, I got sick the second day we were there!! I was sleeping most of NYE and got up in time to go outside and see the fireworks go off all down the strip and then went right back to bed!!!! COMPLETELY SUCKED
