My wife and I stayed in a boutique hotel in Christchurch New Zealand a couple of years ago. The room was very high tech., including a television that not only operated as the usual alarm, but could be switched to log fire mode. The lighting in the room could be altered for intensity and would change colour too, as would the bathroom lights. Even the underside of the bed was lit up - no idea why. The only downside was that the bedroom window was tiny.I was discussing this with my wife in the lift when a Japanese gentleman said "Your room has a window??" His hadn't!
Its not the poor people that go to these budget hotels, its just the normal for anyone boasting about how cheap they got something. Its really a cover story to justify to your partner why you booked it in the first place, as there is always one penny pincher in any great relationship but, you will have to ask someone thats rich, as its different, apparently.
