If you enjoy driving something different, how about trying Australian designed/engineered/built cars? If you like cars that handle well, are comfortable, powerful, spacious, reasonably well equipped (ipod integration, bluetooth, in addition to usual equipment listed for the Corolla), I recommend the following:

Hertz - Group D (Full Size, Falcon XR6 or similar) or
Avis - Group P (Full Size Sports, Falcon XR6 or similar)
Most helpful; thanks again. I have rented the Corolla several times (enjoy the stick -- especially on the "wrong" side). But I also like to drive new (to me) cars, so I will take your recommendation on the Falcon or the Holden.
