Hospitality for the night

A couple weeks back I mentioned by travel adventures trying to get to Savannah, and I mentioned and odd hotel room.

It was at the Hilton Garden Inn. They were pretty full by the time I got there, and they had two rooms choice left for me. One had recently been a smoking room, and one doubled as a hopitality suite. I wasn't entirely sure what that meant, but it seemed like the better option anyway.

A hospitality suite is generally for receptions or other casual events that make it a more comfortable alternative to spending more time in the conference room across the hall. That means it is a large open space with a concrete floor under the carpet. And a Murphy bed that flips down from the wall.

Now, I'm not complaining. The staff as great, and the room was reasonably comfortable. And I found it way more amusing than I probably should have. And the door to my room was only 10 feet from the door to the meeting I was going to the next day.

Here are some pictures.

@Auntie E: It was a riot and I'm still not sure why.

@Rob: The bed was more comfortable than I expected.

@Pricilla: And cleverly designed to hide most stains.

@Shinade: I'd like to get back there sometime when it's not summer. I was there for less than 20 hours and saw very little on my way form the airport to hotel and back. I did see lots of payday loans near my hotel, though, and that's rarely a good sign.

I was hoping I get to the "Lady and sons" but that didn't quite work out.
