Is this simply for aesthetics?

Use resource pools as your VM groups if you want to see this in the Hosts and Clusters view.

If it is so you can apply roles and privileges, use the folders in the Vms and Templates View

Or both, use the resource pools

See here http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jspa?threadID=74625&tstart=0

What is the location of the folders?

You can not use folders inside clusters, so if your hosts are in clusters you will not be able to use folders in the "hosts and clusters" inventory view.

Why are you using these folders?

If you are just looking for a way to group VMs, use resource pools.

In the "virtual machines and templates" inventory view you can lots of stuff with folders.
