Of course, not going through repeated bankruptcies because your fleet and labor costs are too high leads to good credit which lets you hedge fuel costs and make money when everyone else is bleeding.

On the plus side:
- It does seem to reduce wrinkles in clothes
- It does seem to make it easier to fit more clothes into a small bag
- It makes it easier to count and make sure that you have enough clothes
- If you travel to multiple locations in one trip, it’s a pain. For 3 city/5 day trip you’ll be tired of re-wrapping fast
- If you accidentally wrap your liquids in the core. TSA will make you regret it.
- If TSA decides to check something in your core, you’ll regret it.
- You have to think before you pack. If you want that pair of jeans or tennis shoes for the flight home after the business meeting, don’t bundle wrap them. bundle wrap everything else and throw them in last.
All in all, I’m pro-bundle wrapping, just pay attention when you do.
Picking your room works fine but the hotels don’t have a map on the web of the room locations. So if I want a room away from from the elevator and ice maker noise, I have no idea if the room I pick fits that criteria or not. All you get is a room number. You can make a guess about which floor it’s on based on the room number but that’s about it.
It’s a good start Hampton Inn but it’s needs a little work.
Also, my one big complaint, why is desk at Hampton Inn always facing away from the TV? They generally face the TV at Courtyards.
