Day 4 – San Diego, pt. 1

I have three things to say… will give all other details after I sleep.

1. The Bad Thing – I woke up at 4:45 am and now it is midnight and I am not asleep yet.

2. The Great Thing – I had an AMAZING day in the San Diego area – thank you to everybody who made it such fun! I am too tired to post details and photos right now, but will try after breakfast.

3. The Stupendous Thing – I arrived at my hotel in LA a little while ago and the guy at the desk said they were setting up my roll-away bed. “Roll-away?” I asked, voice trembling, imagining that I have to sleep in a broom closet or the locker room of the fitness center. “Yes,” he said. “We are 100% booked for tonight and tomorrow night so we have to put you in the Presidential Suite. It does not have a bed, so we’re giving you a roll-away. The room normally goes for $1000 a night, but we’re charging you the normal room rate for the inconvenience.”

Me: *sputter*

So yes, dear reader, I am sleeping on a roll-away bed in a suite that is as big as my apartment. It has two couches, a dining room table that easily seats six, and one of those fancy-schmanzy shower heads that makes you feel like you are washing your hair in a giant waterfall.

I am not sure if this is really happening. I could be dreaming all of this. I am certainly getting punchy. I’ll let you know if I wake up in a broom closet.

  1. Let me get this straight: $1,000 a night for the super swank suite…without a bed???? What the heck were they thinking? “Oh, no one will want to sleep in there after they pay this kind of money!”

    Enjoy the rest of the suite though! Definitely order room service. ;^)

    1. Yeah, that’s what I don’t get. Does the President take an oath not to sleep on a bed or something?

      Or maybe they hide the President bed from civilians? You probably wouldn’t want to sleep on it anyway.

    2. Yeah, i know. I was confused, too.

      Here’s the deal – it’s one of those living/dining suites that has bedrooms off either side. Those bedrooms (which are behind locked doors) are rooms unto themselves. I have the central portion, which is now a bedroom courtesy of my roll-away, which was quite comfortable.

      1. Oh, well that makes more sense then. It did seem to be against the entire principle of a hotel not to have a bed. Still, what a great image: all this fancy stuff surrounding a roll-away bed.
