How many hotels do people normally build in your game?

We've had a couple of games now where no one builds hotels except me.

I built 3 in my last game to cover the extra visitors I was getting.

Really? They are cheap and one of the best sources of money in the game!

I try to build at least two basic 2 slot hotels during the game. And if a 3 slot one becomes available, i try to make that sucker mine! I will gladly clean up on bonus visitors if my opponent doesn't.

I think you should always build at least one, regardless of player count or situation. They pay for themselves in two rounds and are worth a boatload of VPs.

1 Hotel: Always.

2 Hotels: Generally a good idea unless you are consistently in last place on reputation.

3 Hotels: Iffy. If you have a high reputation or less than 5 players it can be worth it but definitely depends on what other players are doing.

4+ Hotels: Really only worth it in two player games.

I had built 5 hotels one game, but I also had the fine diner, which made that lucrative, pointswise.
I won that game, btw.
