Is there anything better for an introvert than a hotel?
I’m sure there is, but today I am going to act like there isn’t.
If you have read any of my posts, you know that last week I was in Denver for a week of meetings. Oddly enough, my headphones actually kept people from talking to me for my flights, so that was a win.
I have to give a shout out plug for the Doubletree Hotel that I stayed at. I have stayed at this hotel for probably close to a total of four months over the past three or four years, so they certainly know me by now and take care of me.
As an introvert, they are perfect for me.
Their shuttle shows up about every half hour at the airport. You don’t have to call, and it’s free.
I got in a little later than usual due to a delayed flight. “We have an unexpected situation in the lavatory” is not something you want to hear right before boarding, but I guess it was fixed.
Anyway, it was nearly 8:00 p.m. when I got in, so I didn’t really want to eat. Standing in line to check-in to the hotel, I was already looking at the restaurant for the overpriced bottles of water…but it wasn’t needed. Two warm cookies and two cold bottles of water were presented to me when I checked in. Not the best dinner, but I didn’t have to come back down to the lobby after unpacking.
I mentioned once before to them my preference was a room away from the elevators, and they must have put it in the computer because once again I was at the end of the hall.
The best part about hotels, though, is that if I didn’t want to, I wouldn’t have to leave the room for anything…other than the meetings. When hungry, I could either order room service or from my best road friend Grubhub. If I forgot something from my bathroom bag, I would just have to call down and they would bring it to me.
On the day of checking out, the receipt was under my door so I didn’t even have to go to the desk.
There have actually been times where I haven’t had to talk to anyone the entire time. Perfect!
Anyway, I am done traveling out of state for four weeks. Then I have a back-to-back trip to Washington DC and then to Dallas the next week.
I’m happy to be home, and look forward to catching up on everyone else’s blogs that I missed.
