Question: Asslam alikum jam and qasr is it most preferable than performing prayer as regular when I reach haram makka or madeena? Since we get the 10000 double of reward for a single rakath of prayer In makka praying like reguler will be the best....?

When you are in Makkah or Madinah it is best for you to pray as much as possible with the imam in the Haram.

In this way you can derive optimal blessings of your stay.

Prayer in the two sanctuaries merits manifold rewards as stated in the hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him): “Prayer in Masjid al-Haram is more meritorious than a hundred thousand prayers in other mosques, a prayer in my mosque is more meritorious than a thousand prayers elsewhere and prayer in the Masjid al-Aqsa is more meritorious than five hundred prayers elsewhere." (Reported by Bayhaqi on the authority of Abu al-Darda and Jabir b. Allah).

In light of these, you should not choose on your own in the hotel combining and shortening prayers - if you are able to make it to the Haram.
