I thought of something last night after reading an article in Businessweek about hotel chains acquiring "boutique" hotels to make stays memorable. Has the DQ been "pitched" to any of the big name chains like Marriott, Hyatt, etc.? They would have the money, and yes she would be stamped with their corporate name and logo, but she is definetly a memorable stay! I know the rooms are small, but it's part of the charm, and I'm sure would be disclosed in the description of the property. I'm not advocating this, just wanted to put my thoughts out there.
