Oftentimes, we don’t think too much about the hotels we stay in. They’re a place to rest, a warm bed, a hot shower, perhaps a place for free breakfast? (One can only hope.) Nonetheless, there a few that stick out in my mind:
The Hotel Bloom in Brussels. Brussels itself was bitterly cold at the end of January 2011, but this hotel was bright, modern, cheery, and had the comfiest beds ever. It just goes to show how someone with an online interior design degree can help make a hotel room memorable.
A hotel near a beach in the province of Granada, from which I hardly got any enjoyment (due to sun poisoning!) even though this was my view:
The Eagle’s Nest in Indianapolis where we ate while rotating around in the sky:
The Poet’s Hostel in Lisbon, the most fun hostel I’ve been to:
The Sheraton Hotel where Mario was fascinated by Chicago’s skyscrapers.
And who can forgot “Hostal Mario,” for which a cranky Spanish lady felt the need to tell us that Mario wasn’t allowed to run a business out of his apartment (when in reality, it was a joke–my brother and his friend were staying there)?
And although I’ve not got any photos, during my stay in Barcelona, I met the most amazing Danish couple. Maybe you should start looking into some flights to Barcelona!
So, tell me, what have been some of your most memorable hotel stays?
