One in five has booked a hotel for a one-night stand
One New Zealander in five has booked a hotel room with a one-night stand in mind, a poll conducted by an online travel company reveals.
Judging the 5500-person Expedia.co.nz poll rampant naughtiness was most likely to take place in Auckland, voted as having New Zealand 's best hotels.
Christchurch was missing out on the night moves, with its hotels rated the worst in the country by Expedia users.
An uncomfortable bed was less likely to ruin the experience than rude and unhelpful hotel staff, who topped the list of hotel gripes ahead of noisy rooms.
Only 20 percent of respondents saw a uncomfortable bed as a pain, while rude staff rated 23 percent.
Noise was a downer for 22 percent of respondents, though presumably not by those making it, especially if they were among the one-night standers.
While 92 percent of hotel stayers whipped off with the complimentary soaps and shampoos the morning after, less than three percent made off with bathrobes or towels.
Most important was the cleanliness of the room (45 percent), followed by the hotel's location (21 percent).
One in six of those polled rated online research as the most significant source of information when booking accommodation, Expedia said.
Just 5 percent were influenced by their travel agent's suggestions when booking, compared to 32 percent who followed recommendations from family and friends.
The survey was conducted online via the Expedia.co.nz website between September 10 and 17.
