And I'm so not unaccustomed to being so pampered. Door to door service taking a cab from home to Amtrak. Amtrak had a free movie and fabulous views (so glad I didn't take the bus). Ironically the cost of the cab from Amtrak to the hotel was only $2 less than the train ticket. But I'll be expensing all this and getting reimbursed.
As I checked into the hotel the clerk told me what time breakfast was served. I asked how much extra it was and she said it was included. I damn near fainted. I mean even though I get an allowance for breakfast, I chose to bring protein shakes and breakfast bars in my suitcase because I didn't want to have to get up extra early to find a restaurant to eat in. Turns out I can eat right here in the hotel. I also asked where I could find internet since I didn't bring my computer. She directed me to their "business center" and when I asked how much she said it was also included.
A suite, cabs, free breakfast, internet; a girl could used to this. If these people are trying to seduce me into working for them permanently (which I was told is a possibility) then this is an excellent way to start. Too bad I'm not looking to be in this line of work permanently.
Anyway, the computer here in the business center has internet slow as molasses. I'm certain there's hamsters on wheels somewhere powering it. Plus I have plans tomorrow night after work. Plus there's only one computer in the business center for the entire hotel. So internet access is sporadic. On another note...there are two king size beds in my room. What the hell am I going to do with two beds!?
