Alas, though I have been to many states and some fabulous cities, I almost never get to explore. I can't tell you how many times I've been to the Chicago area, but I have never stepped foot into the city.
Anyway, here's a look at my first stop of the week. I'm in Boston right now and though I lived here for years, I am in a new-to-me hotel in the suburbs, the Doubletree Bedford. I'm pleasantly surprised by how nice it is.
The pillow situation is a little odd, but the bathroom is a nice touch.
Did you know that some hotel brands are getting rid of desks? The thinking is that people would rather work on their laptop in a comfortable chair or in bed. I hated this trend when I first encountered it at a Hyatt in Kentucky. I'm so happy Hilton didn't follow suit in this newly renovated Doubletree.
I think using some space for a small refrigerator (under the coffee station) is a smart use of the space. I hate not having a place to stash leftovers or some drinks in a hotel room.
There's definitely less drawer space in this room. I imagine they did some research and found that people aren't staying for an extended period of time.
I'm kind of shocked by how generous this hotel is with toiletries. So many hotels have cut back in this area in recent years.
I had an event at the hotel last night and the ballroom was pretty impressive. It's one of the nicer ballrooms I've seen in recent years.
I'm almost sad to pack up and leave this morning. On to Maine next...
