Simon travelled from Denver to New York last night, landing in Laguardia airport just before midnight. Arrived at the hotel (www.milfordplaza.com) at just before 1am to find that the room type was not available and the room would be a twin bed setup – no major drama, until he got to the room. Seemed like something out of a porn film (apparently) with one wall completely covered in mirrors – presumably to make the room feel bigger – Simon could almost reach each wall if he held his arms out at length – GREAT. To make matters worse, this room was costing almost $500 USD per night …. Outrageous
Anyway, the room was swapped first thing on Tuesday morning and while Simon now has a more relaxing room, it is not that much bigger than previous and the great news is – no mirrored walls and the bathroom is clean 🙂
There isn’t even a desk, and when Simon asked for one, the kind lady behind the counter pointed out that none of the rooms in the hotel were big enough for desks unfortunately – oh how tempting it was to ask how they justified their $500 per night …… A pointless question really.
4 more days to go….
