So I’ve been in this role of VP Sales now for about 6 weeks and travel is fairly new to me. I’ve done some before but probably less than even Wendii does. Now I’m traveling just about every week. I have concerns about my expense report, and if it’s reasonable. I try to stay at hotels as inexpensively as possible but have landed at a few dumps.
In my mind paying more than about $100/night is a lot, which has me staying at a lot of the Choice Hotels. But it seems like you and other people stay at much more expansive places $150-300/night. Is that accurate? Do I just need to change my thinking around this? Or should I stay in as inexpensive a place as possible in order to save the P&L? Also, does it create a bad reputation to stay in inexpensive places?
