For years, we've been loyal to the Marriott brands. We like that all locations are consistantly clean and comfortable. We are have elite status with Marriott Rewards, so we usually try to stay at Marriott properties to keep up with that. Just recently, we stayed at the Fairfield in Lafayette, LA
; Marriott New Orleans, LA
; and Courtyard Gulfport, MS
all within the last two weeks. We were originally booked at the Renaissance Pere Marquette, but they ended up full somehow. So the gave us a corner room at the New Orleans Marriott for free!
I also like Starwood! The have very nice hotels across the entire chain. We have found cheap rates at Westin Hotels for $79 per night!
Hilton brands are no for us. We have stayed at 2 Hilton's; both times we opened the door, and the room hadn't been cleaned yet.
Haven't ever stayed at InterContinental, but from what I've heard, I'm not sure I will try.
