LucieV, you are kind to use the word defensive regarding the OP. I find aggressive to be a much better fit.

My parents grew up during the Depression; before they were married, neither had ever taken a vacation. They were determined to take us kids on some sort of family vacation every year. We ALWAYS stayed outside of town (I remember the Ramada Inn in Burlingame on our trip to San Franscisco). That was the only way we could afford to go on vacation. (My husband's family camped-6 people in a small camper.)

If staying outside of town allows folks to go on a vacation they otherwise wouldn't have been able to take, why not? I'm not going to criticize.

Hmmm, in Prague and Berlin we could walk to most of the sights we wanted to see from our hotel. Not all, but most. For those that weren't as close in Berlin, the S and U bahn stations were at the door. It really does depend on the city.

But different strokes for diffent folks. We don't usually stay in 4 and 5 star hotels anyway--we don't like them as well as B&Bs, pensions, and smaller family-owned hotels. That's why they make so many different color necties.

I'll add that I've been to Paris a few times, I am enjoying getting farther and farther away from teh center. The town becomes somewhat different...and more "comfortable" and to my chagrin more "lets live here"
