Staying in hotels is really nice. I feel like I'm on vacation - even if I'm not. All my problems seem to go away when I go to a hotel. The classy, clean, carpeted interiors, cable TV, internet access, and pool distract me from my problems. Last year, I stayed at hotels several times with a friend - even though we didn't have to, and it helped lift my mood. I think that he likes going to hotels just as much as me. It's too bad that they're so expensive.
