FYI: In addition to US per diem rates,
http://www.gsa.gov/portal/category/21287, there is also the State
Department http://aoprals.state.gov/web920/per_diem.asp for the whole
world.  Although I'm sure these both have flaws, using this or
something similar avoids the difficulty of selecting an amount for
each place or an absolute amount that works in many areas.  This also
removes any debate about the 'appropriateness' of selecting this hotel
or that hotel.  Other Counties probably offer similar websites.
