“What do you call a spud in a hotel?"/"A suite potato.”

"Sweet potato” shouldn’t be confused with “suite potato,” but there are jokes. “Q. What kind of potato rents more than one room in a hotel? A. A suite potato” was printed in the La Crosse (WI) Tribune on February 16, 1985.

Wikipedia: Sweet potato
The sweet potato or sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) is a dicotyledonous plant that belongs to the bindweed or morning glory family, Convolvulaceae. Its large, starchy, sweet-tasting, tuberous roots are a root vegetable. The young shoots and leaves are sometimes eaten as greens. The sweet potato is distantly related to the common potato (Solanum tuberosum), both being in the order Solanales. The sweet potato, especially the orange variety, is often called a “yam” in parts of North America, but it is entirely unrelated to true yams.
