We just returned from an all-too-brief stay at the Comfort Suites in Eugene. The room was terrific. As writers, we need space for both of us to work at our computers and this room had it all. The staff members were friendly, helped us with a map to our next location, and carried on a good conversation.
But I've saved my biggest "yea" for the breakfast. As a gluten-free vegan, I've learned to carry my own breakfast and feel lucky when I can find a hotel breakfast room with a banana that is neither green nor overly ripe (you know what I mean, the ones with the large dark polka dots on the yellow background). Imagine my surprise and delight to find breakfast potatoes awaiting me -- along with lovely local apples (not those tough-skinned Delicious apples) and juicy oranges. Sure, everyone else will be happy with the scrambled eggs and bacon. However, I'm looking forward to which breakfast potatoes they have next time (they alternate several methods of preparation) and I'll be sure to save room for their Bob's Red Mills steel cut oatmeal.
And perhaps it is to be expected in a town like Eugene, but we liked the general absence of paper plates and plastic forks.
A great experience.
