Part of the fun of traveling to new places is the ability to stay in different spaces. While we've featured many options for glamorous places to lay your head at night, are you really willing to spend the extra cash to stay at them? Often hotel prices are 4 times more than airfare, so where do you draw the line? Would you rather camp or stay in a motel and have the extra cash to sightsee?

Personally, I probably fall into the category of "cheapest way possible." I've always just been grateful for a place to sleep, no matter what it looks like and are always happy to have the extra cash in our pockets for new culinary adventures or forms of entertainment. I come to see the city I'm visiting and all that it has to hold and rarely spend any time in the hotel itself.

What are your thoughts on swanky hotels? Would you rather spend your money elsewhere or live it up in the lap of luxury in the name of once in a lifetime vacations?
