Never had a problem finding hotels or restaurants that take Amex.

As my last travel manager used to say, "Cheap hotels don't take Amex,
nice ones do"

In my Nortel days we were given corporate Amex cards, and travel
expenditure had to be charged to them.  I like to think that
visiting Canadian big-wigs had as much trouble as we did finding
a hotel that took Amex - if you were lucky there would be one
hotel in the target area.
