To each his own. Back in another lifetime I had a job where I was on the road about 75% of the time. Friends and family were jealous of all the places I had to go to, all the "luxurious" hotels etc. "Man you're so lucky, you get to stay in hotels for free. Eat out in restaurants for free." They had no idea. After awhile, spending 3 or 4 nights a week in a hotel is not fun. It gets real old. Maybe in a swanky suite it would be. How many swanky suites come up on Priceline? My wife would complain about the travel, that when I got home on Friday, I wanted to be home. Eat in the kitchen. Homemade food. Relax in my chair. Sleep in a comfortable bed. Have some familiar things around me. Play with the kids and the dog. Even the cat. In the "Be Careful What You Wish For" vein, both my now ex-wife and my brother took positions requiring some travel. And it was only a few days a month. Guess what? They both found out there was no glamour. But if you want it, go for it. Free toast and newspapers are much less important than pets and family.
