Now, my employer pays for all my travel expenses and at $200 per night, the monthly hotel expense will be a minimum of $2000.

I wonder if I could convince them to reimburse me for a portion of my mortgage at a discounted rate of $100 per night. To me, it's a win-win situation. My company saves $100 per night or $1000 per month and I receive $1000 per month towards my mortgage in Atlanta.

Has anyone ever proposed a similar idea to their employer?

Does anyone currently have an agreement like this with the company that they work for?

Buuut whaaat abooout the pooooiiinnnnts?!?!?
