On a recent business trip, I stayed in one of the area’s nicer hotels. The lobby was amazing, the staff was very courteous and helpful, and the check-in process was quick and efficient. Once I secured my key, I headed up to my room to unwind. Upon opening the door, I was pleased to find a nice room layout and good-sized flatscreen TV.
