This is our last gripe session about our trip to Charlotte this past week. But, this one REALLY gets us.
Let’s do the old MasterCard commercial:
Cost of staying in the Charlotte Doubletree: $143/night
Cost of dinner at the Charlotte Doubletree: $10/hamburger
Cost of parking at the Charlotte Doubletree: Kind of forget but, around $10/day
Cost of me, sitting in the parking lot of a cheaper hotel, eating my Doubletree chocolate-chip cookie, sipping on my free Doubletree coffee and STEALING the cheaper hotel’s FREE internet: PRICELESS!!!
I enjoyed my stay, and I SHOULD have for those kind of prices. But the fact that, you give me extra warm chocolate-chip cookies upon check-in, a free razor if I forgot one, free toothbase if I forget some, a free comb if I needed one (I don’t), a free USA Today – which nobody ever reads, free soap, shampoo and hair conditioner, free electricity, free water – despite the fact that I run the HOT WATER for 45-minutes to “shower iron” my clothes after traveling coupled with the fact that your wireless internet access is simply floating in the air and not a soul has to do ANYTHING to provide me access to it, do you REALLY have to charge $9.95 to use the internet, Ya Jagoffs??????
