Re: The New York Times Article “100 Hotels Under $150”

We knew we were onto a great idea, but we were a little surprised when The New York Times pretty much lifted the entire concept of our website,, for its featured article in this Sunday’s Travel section.  The article, “100 Hotels Under $150″, is a list of hotels recommended by NYT readers in Europe’s major cities.  Stuart Emmrich, the author, writes that “we used [our] database [of readers’ comments] to research and then select 100 hotels that we feel represent some of the best bargains for travelers headed to one of 14 European cities in the next few months.”

That pretty much captures what Darn Good Digs is all about, where travelers nominate their all-time favorite places to stay for under $150, and we research all the recommendations to pick the best of the  best for our site.  Coincidence?  We’re not so sure!  We emailed Mr. Emmrich to see if he had anything to say, but it turns out he was not aware of our site.  He did offer to take a look, though, and we certainly would appreciate that.  In the meantime, we’ll take a look at Mr. Emmrich’s list and see if he’s found any Darn Good Digs.
