Readers: Would you share a room with a colleague during a business trip to save money?
Apparently some of you do, according to a survey of 700 business travelers that hotel chain Embassy Suites Hotels recently released, the Los Angeles Times notes.
The survey found that 71% of business traveler respondents say they’ve changed their business travel habits because of the economy, the article says. The most popular ways that respondents said they are cutting back are by flying coach-class only (29%), trimming their meals and other expenses (27%) and booking hotel rooms that offer good value (24%), the article notes.
But the survey found that a surprising 17% said they try to share a room with a colleague.
