How about a HOTEL BOARD???

Big Fat Moe Nov 12, 2006 10:17 PM

We eat. We travel. We need a board that discusses where to stay. It would be a helpful related service. How about it? What do you think?
Thanks, Moe

    Ain't gonna happen until hotel furniture and linens become edible. This is Chowhound, not Fodor's.

      Chowhound's value comes from our narrow focus - it means you'll get what you're looking for when you come here without a lot of other distracting materials to sort through.

      There are lots of great websites out there that offer travel advice and information, but this simply isn't one of them.

        I completely agree with you BFM. I have come to relish the opinions of fellow chowhounders and think it would be very helpful . Quite frankly, the suggestion of having its own board would mean that only people interested in the hotel advice would have to "sort through a lot of the distracting material." That's why it would have its own board. Much like the Not About Food Board. I suppose you could ask for hotel advice on that board and hope that it won't be edited...as I'm sure my relpy will be!

          Even what's on the "Not About Food" board is in some way food related.

          If we have a hotel board, then someone will want advise on how to get to them, so then we'd need a travel board, etc. etc. This is CHOWhound, there are plenty of sources for the other things you might need advice about -- search them until you find where you're comfortable.

            There's also a reasonable question about whether those who have opinions others like about food will also have opinions about anything else that would be as helpful.

            Mr Fat, you might have a case if the board were to discuss the food at hotels. There have been a significant number of posts seeking help in selecting a hotel in part for the food. On the other hand, I have a personal policy of never eating at the hotel in which I'm staying.
