Trips Deductions for Contractor Working while on Personal Trip

I am an independent IT contractor that usually works from home, and occasionally onsite at different locations.

 

If I take a trip for personal reasons, but plan to work and bill substantial amounts of time from the hotel is any of that trip or mileage tax deductible? 

 

Also, does it make a difference if the trip is in the US or international?

If there is no person to person business meetings during the trip then it would be hard to justify it as being needed for your business. So while you can bill for work done from the room, getting there would not be a business reason, so no I would not deduct the trip costs.
