That depends on whether I have to walk to the city center, and whether
there is any life around HP.  :-)  I don't mind taking public
transportation to get to HP, or to get to the city center.

Actually the cheap rates at the Holiday Inn were leisure rates, not any
corporate discount.  I see this as another travel trend - corporate rates
are now often much more expensive than the discounted leisure rates.
However, corporate rates are constant, while the leisure rates fluctuate
wildly.
