On occasion, government travel is scheduled for employees to meet at non-government (e.g. hotels) sites to conduct business with their government peers. This should be eliminated. GSA has already leased buildings to the government, so therefore, the meetings should occur on the grounds of the federal property that is leased to the Department/Bureau/Agency. Offsite meetings tend to be an excuse for going on a vacation instead of having uninterrupted time to work.
