- Unaccomodating Accomodations
- July 11th, 5:37
I don't know what it is about my husband and me but hotel desk clerks take one look at us and give us that room that would have picky guests balking: traffic noise, fiddly air conditioner, across from the elevator/ice machine/pool/deaf guest with television blasting into the wee hours.
Some of these things are readily apparent and we have them change our rooms. Unfortunately, the spotlight illuminating the hotel's flagpole right outside our window wasn't noticeable until I turned off the light after midnight. After a brutal travel day of lost luggage, walking and driving in torrential rain, and squelching around in wet shoes (see above re: lost luggage), I wasn't going to roust the mister so we could change rooms after he'd been asleep over an hour. Who needs sleep?
On a plus note, one more state capitol under our belt, excellent barbecue lunch, excellent Rye IPA at a brewpub a 10 minute walk from the hotel, great people watching when the skies opened as we were enjoying our beer, the a fun Kinks cover band at a record store that has great beer on tap. I consider this day a draw!
