I stayed at this hotel then changed to other lodgings to be with friends. Then I changed back to this one because I just couldn't get all the amenities they had here at the other place. Turns out other people I knew are staying here, too, so I learned my lesson.
First thing - hot breakfast. Not just Danish and OJ, but eggs and bacon and cereals and fruit and fresh waffles. Just what I need to start the day.
Then there are the rooms. They must have just upgraded this place because I haven't see this many conveniences anywhere else. The desk is double the size of other desks, and has a power strip built into the desk frame. No need for a tangle of extension cords, I could plug my phone and laptop and iPad all into a strip on the desk. And there are sockets built into the lamp for other equipment. And a bright lamp on the desk and bedside - none of those old dim bulbs.
The bed, of course, suits me to a tee.
I am very happy that I checked out of the other lodgings and came back here for the rest of my conference.
