Right, when somebody else is paying you don’t care what it costs.
I’ve noticed lately that some of the chains now allow you to pay an extra $10 or $20 for a room per night, and they give you twice the number of frequent stayer points. IOW, you just ding the employer for your own personal benefit.
I wouldn't say I don't CARE, exactly, but I do think that if I'm there away from my home working for them, I'm entitled to a reasonable level of accommodation. having said that, I still won't incur unreasonable expenses just because I can pass them along.
