Female-Only Hotel Rooms for the Business Traveler

A hotel being constructed in Grand Rapids will have a women-only floor to accomodate female business travelers. The hotel spokesperson said that 50% of business travelers are women, that women may not feel safe in a strange city while traveling, and that they get harassed in lounges.

There's quite the discussion over at feministing about this. Yet, on a totally practical level, as someone who travels on business, I would totally stay on a female-only floor voluntarily.

Would you stay on a female-only floor (if you're female)? And why?
