The cost of travel, in particular hotel rooms, can add up quickly across the federal government. We should identify cities which have high density of U.S. government travelers, (such as Brussels or Geneva) and investigate if a U.S. government owned apartment might be cheaper than constantly booking hotel rooms. They could be shared across agencies. They would require an apartment, internet and some form of housekeeping. This would also increase efficiency because it would decrease the amount of time booking reservations, especially when accomadations are limited due to other events.
