Hotel Woes



We're out of town again in San Diego to attend the world's largest comic book convention and they're expecting over 100,000 attendees this year. Anyways, we decided to drive down a day early and take our chances with one-night's hotel. We arrived in the area close to midnight and spent an hour looking for a room and discovered a majority of the hotels were sold out, but we eventually lucked out on one. By this time, it was close to 1:30AM in the morning. The late night attendent gave us directions to our room, but sent us to the wrong building and we kept walking in circles. Our humor was low at that time of the night especially after a 7 hour drive.

Eventually, we went back down to the front desk and asked for an explanation. The attendent said he forgot where the room was. Can you believe that? But, I think he sent us on the wild goose chase on purpose.

In any case, the photo above is of the room's computer flat panel display/tv. I think this is the first flat panel tv I've seen in a hotel room.

Sorry about the late night hotel room hunt but at least you got to stay in such a sweet room! I hope you'll have a great time, take care, AV.

Hotel workers can be pricks, I know, I am one. But also if you have to deal with some of the asses we do, you'd understand a bit. He may forget where your room is, but it's impossibly easy to look up. Hope Comic-Con is as awesome as I dream it is.

I agree Big Scott. The shower had 2 shower heads. I can get cleaned twice as fast!

Sirpwn4g3, Comic-Con is cool. This is the 5th year I've been here. Unforunately, there was no sign that said our room was in a different building. We didn't anticipate the front desk would lie to us.
