SO, I was poking around on the website of this internationally known hotel chain – not to mention any names - but a certain celebritante is the recipient of this family’s legacy and trust-fund. I know you know. Okay, so I am at the website and I see they offer a “Menu” of items that can be placed in your room upon arrival. How nice I think – how welcoming! Here is a partial list from their menu of items and their costs:
San Pelligrino 1 liter bottle, 5.50 USD
Liter Fiji Water: 5.50 USD
12oz bottle Sierra Mist 2.50 USD
12 oz bottle of Pepsi: 2.50 USD
Cheese Selection served with
Sliced Bread and Crackers 9.95 USD
3 Freshly Baked Cookies Price Per Item: 6.00 USD
A $2.50 Room Service Delivery Charge and 18% Gratuity are added to all orders. Price does not include 7.5% Sales Tax.
WOW! I really need to get out more! At our Inn, the Mountain Goat Lodge – we include all the above and much more, in the price of the room.
Here’s our list (ALL INCLUDED FOR FREE WITH EACH NIGHTS LODGING) :
* Full hearty country breakfast which consists of an egg/meat entrée, fresh fruits, cinnamon rolls, toast, bagels, cereals, juice, milk, coffee, tea. With breakfast you may order a Latte or any other espresso drink you can think of.
* Unlimited 24-hour availability of coffee, tea, hot chocolate.
* Happy hour refreshments consisting of Premium beers, Locally bottled Wines, Soft Drinks, crackers and homemade goat cheese.
* Homemade cookies at bedtime
With few exceptions, most all Bed & Breakfast Inn’s across the country are including many of the same items as we do – although not all have a professional-grade espresso machine run by an ex-barista trained to do all types of drinks! But if you stay in a hotel – you won’t get these treats or personalized service. If you have never stayed in a Bed & Breakfast Inn try it and see for yourselves that it's A Better Way To Stay!
