Rama-don't

Tuesday, November 13, 2007

So I flew into Ft. Lauderdale last night, do not get excited I return to MN tonight, and AirTran was not a bad airline to fly. We even got in early enough for me to call the hotel shuttle service.

Then:

We arrived and the driver went into the lobby with my bag and did not wait for me to get out of the shuttle.
There was a strange man standing at the front desk talking with the deskman.
The deskman began with, Mrs. Scherber I just need your ID and Amex card...without excusing the man standing there...as I wondered if he were an employeee he said,
"How old are you?"
I gave him a withering look that said---Back off buddy. He started in..."Hey, I am not agreessive I just..."
"Please, I am not comfortable checking in with you standing there." He becomes indignant, obviously had a few cocktails and heads over to rehash with his buddy how "she is not 'comfortable'" blah, blah, blah.
I turn to the night deskman and say, "I wish you would have said something to him so I did not have to."
"I did not want to offend a guest."
"Well, you DID." he shrugs...

Whatever, this is also a DIVE! and all doors are external!!! Yikes. I put every piece of furniture up against the door and window. Can you say three hours of sleep and not all in a row?

I can not wait to go home.

Yikes! Was this part of a large business friendly chain? What kind of place does that company of yours put you up at? Don't they have good travel connections???

Ha ha ha. It was Ramada and I selected it...it was rated higher than most other properties that were available--however, it was NOT nice at all. Clearly they had not been reviewed in awhile.
