Per usual, I'm booking travel at the last minute. We're always trying to maximize the number of meetings, etc. so I'm often booking my travel with just a few days advance notice.
So, I'm coming down to Dallas and Sherri (the greatest travel agent who has ever lived!) finds the Palomar is sold out. And I am bummed!
I've had great experiences at the Palomar (read the blog entry here) and I didn't really want to stay anywhere else.
So...not being shy...I reached out to the assistant manager who was so appreciative of the previous blog entry about my great experience there...and of course (this being a Kimpton hotel), he came through.
A room for Wednesday and Thursday night. A terrific room upgrade. And the above (see the picture) waiting for me:
- Salty snack? Check!
- Snickers? Check! (times 3)
- Diet Pepsi? Check! (times 2)
- Handwritten note welcoming me back? Check!
I love this place.
Seriously, if you're in Dallas...stay at the Palomar.
