not a smidgen
Posted Jun 27, 2016 on Hotels
This pretend-to-be-tops hotel is, in effect, a lesson in why one should go to a lesser-level hotel. This hotel, in contrast to a less pretentious one, gives barely a smidgen of niceties to its customers: no coffee in lobby, no convenience machines, etc. Instead, everything is rigged to force the customer, who is out in the middle of nowhere in this hotel, to overpay for every little doodad one might take a notion to; that is, after having paid a high price for the room anyway. To boot, I was awakened by a party of fire-pit, drunken singers at THREE AM, beneath my window, probably just because "we paid for it, so we'll do what we feel like doing", even when uncivil.
