Who would have thought that the green-and-blue striped Cintas tie the Doubletree staffmembers wear would have worked with my windowpane Vineyard Vines shirt that I brought for the UB medical school graduation? Not I. But thanks to the most gracious and accommodating folks behind the desk, disaster turned to triumph: When we arrived on the Thursday night before the event, I unpacked my clothes--and discovered that I'd left the ties my wife had bought expressly to match my new shirt were back home, nestled in the carry-on bag I'd decided not to use in favor of consolidating everything in our hanging bag. Who wouldn't have been miffed? Miffed I was. But the people behind the desk, Bryanne in particular, turned a disgruntled traveler into a happy camper with the offer of a crisp new Doubletree tie, fresh in its cellophane sleeve. I wore it to the graduation. I wore it to the reception that night. Compliments abounded. And thanks to Doubletree generosity, I may wear it again: When I tried to return it, I was urged to keep it. It's my favorite souvenir of a delightful weekend (along with the snapshot of Nick and me in our matching ties), the overall hotel experience included. Thank you.
