Why are hotels so expensive?

Why are hotels so expensive? San Francisco for instance - my studio costs $925/month which works out to about $31/day. Why would a hotel up the road cost four to six times as much? I understand they have to be cleaned daily and the front desk needs to be staffed, and they are furnished, but really, hotel rooms are generally much smaller and much less livable than apartments. Why such a huge price difference?

Paris hotels with easy access to CDG and BVA airports

Where should we stay in Paris if we are landing at CDG and departing two days later from BVA (RyanAir). In those two days, we would like to see as much of Paris as possible but not end up spending an exorbitant amount traveling from the city back to our hotel, or from the hotel to the airports.

Staying at Red Lion Hotel downtown Seattle but don't want to pay outrageous hotel parking fee ($30 a night!). Does anyone know somewhere else within a reasonable distance where I can park for cheap? I've got strong legs and some patience.

Nice but inexpensive/moderately priced lodging around Boston?

We're going to be visiting Boston for a few days, starting tomorrow (Sunday). We'd like to avoid traffic and parking issues by staying in the outskirts and taking mass-transit into downtown to see the sights. We're looking for a hotel or motel that is pleasant, clean and fairly inexpensive (less than $125/night IF possible). Any recommendations?

Help me cushion the leaving-home blow.

I'm moving from Boston to Cincinnati in a few weeks, and am doing the drive to OH on my own. I'd like to stop halfway through and stay the night - someplace not expensive, but hopefully someplace nice (to help cushion the blow of leaving 'home' for good). However, Travelocity et. al. are just giving me HoJos, Holiday Inns, etc, all for quite a bit of money per night and generally with questionable cleanliness. It seems logical to get off the highway to find a place that's not going to rip me off - but how do I find a nice, clean, mostly inexpensive place while knowing nothing about the area I'm hoping to stop (Rochester/Buffalo/Erie, PA)? Can you help? [more inside]

Victorianist seeks hotel in Austin

AcademicTravelFilter: Thanks to my habit of writing about obscure books, I need to detour to Austin TX this summer in order to read a bad Victorian triple-decker at the Harry Ransom Center, UT-Austin. As I will not have a rental car and would prefer not to die of heat stroke, I'm in search of recommendations for adequate hotels either within walking distance (I know there's a Days Inn or something similar about 1/2 mile away) or on one of the bus/shuttle lines. (This thread was illuminating about the aforementioned bus/shuttle lines, but not quite what I'm looking for.)

i like fun things.

The lady & I want to watch some whales in Victoria BC around Memorial day. We'd like to avoid cookie-cutter-corporate hotels. We want a funky mid-price (think $100/night or so) place to stay. When we travel around Washington/Oregon, we like to stay at McMenamins. Is there anything close to that in Victoria?

where to sleep in the city that never sleeps

Hotel recommendations needed for NYC. Ideally downtown. Not crazy expensive, but it's for my parents, so it needs to be fancier than a backpacker's hotel/hostel (eg, private bath, not too noisy, clean, etc). Many thanks!

In Slate's Explainer column today, they have the unanswered questions of 2007. Most are inscrutable, unanswerable or ridiculous... but I've wondered this one myself too many times to let it go: "Very rare to find a hotel room with a light on the ceiling, they're usually floor lamps or desk lamps. Is there some structural reason for that?" [more inside]
