Back home, after an interesting experience
I’m back home tonight, after a rigorous (but awesome) two day training for work.
My hotel experience was okay, but not the best.
This hotel was the Embassy Suites (owned by Hilton) close to SeaTac Airport.
I walked into my hotel room last night, just after 5:00 p.m.
Tired and cranky, I wanted a quick dinner and early bedtime.
I did not sleep well Saturday evening, and I was still dragging a bit yesterday.
So back to last night.
I inserted my key card into my hotel room door (remember when hotel rooms had actual keys?).
Anyhoo, when I inserted the key card, the little green light twinkled, there was a click, and I opened the now unlocked door, and stepped into the Brazilian rain forest.
The temperature in the room was 74.5 degrees F, and the heat was still coming.
I ran over to the thermostat and turned the heat off.
I unpacked my bag and waited for the suite to cool down.
Really cranky by now, I went to the bedroom and opened the windows as far as I could.
I should have left the room and gone downstairs for dinner, but the concept of eating in public made me want to vomit.
So I ordered room service and turned on the television.
I had a great meal, a little vino, and things began to look up.
Then, having eaten, it was time to go to the bathroom.
I did my “business” and then reached for the toilet paper.
There was no toilet paper.
So, thanks to Kleenex and a working shower/bathtub, I cleaned myself up.
Then I called housekeeping.
So I called the hotel’s front desk, and asked for someone to bring me some t.p.
“Will do, right away,” was the answer I got.
Five minutes later, the phone rang and the front desk clerk told me the housekeeper was on break, could I wait for fifteen minutes?
Like I have a choice?
I paid good bucks for this hotel room, there’s no way I’m schelping downstairs because nobody thought to leave toilet paper in my hotel room.
About fifteen minutes later, the toilet paper arrived.
I went to bed early and slept for nine hours, with no problems.
And I never had to turn the heat back on.
Funny side note: In the bathroom was a sign saying that Hilton Hotels is trying to save money on water and laundry supplies, so Hilton appreciates if guests reuse their towels.
Hilton needs to save money somewhere, if their rooms are kept at almost 75 degrees!
Anyway, I will by your blogs tomorrow night, after work.
It’s good to be home!
