What matters most in a hotel?

A national survey conducted on behalf of the insurance company Chubb finds that 44 percent of travelers consider cleanliness their biggest worry in picking a hotel. Other factors mattered relatively little: 23 percent said price was most important, and 19 percent ranked location as the top worry, according to the phone survey of 1,000 Americans in June reported recently in the LA Times.

The problem with the survey is that it includes nontravelers as well as travelers. Only about 50 million Americans hold passports, but anyone could have been invited to give opinions in the survey.

So Budget Travel would like to ask the travel

pros think, namely, you.
