Not the kind of thing you expect to hear about this time of year, but I guess some people don't care when they needlessly inflict harm.
This is probably the most disappointing stay I've had at this hotel, but it still wasn't all that bad.
I reserved a non-handicapped room with a refrigerator, so I could keep some drinks cold, but ended up getting the exact opposite of that. I asked to be moved to a room resembling the one I reserved (since I was paying a few dollars more a night for it), but the one I was moved to was exactly like what I originally had. By that time, I was more tired than picky and just wanted to get a shower, and the new room was just a few doors down from the ice machine. It looks like I will be cutting the stay a night short anyway, though... that does a little more than making up for the price difference.
I need to get a small cooler in a little while, and see if I can make it through the flood of last-second shoppers. I wouldn't ordinarily need one for a family holiday visit, but my uncle usually brings some sort of meat for Christmas dinner, and this year he mentioned bringing enough for 20 people (there are only 5 of us) so he expects some to go home with everyone :-)
Last, but certainly not least... Merry Christmas to those that celebrate it, and Happy Holidays in general!
