Have a cute little cafe on a terrace near a sun-splashed pool.
…and a gym with a pool view offering beverages, headphones and working equipment.
When you hear that a guest [politely] logged a noise complaint in the middle of the night, comp the $45 room service breakfast when she checks out even though she didn’t bring it up. Tell her you picked the suite you gave her for its quiet and that you’re sorry for what happened.
The Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills did all of things and more. A front desk employee named Kris bowled me over with his kindness. Thanks, Kris!
After the awful experience I had at my original LA hotel this trip, the Four Seasons made my trip end on a happy note–all for only $30 per night more than the Ant Hotel.*
Enjoy a few pics I took during my too brief stay at the gorgeous Four Seasons.
My company for the event was the wonderful @eimski. She and I met through Twitter and got acquainted when she visited NYC. Without Twitter I’m not sure what would have brought together a girl from Northern Ireland living in Houston with lil ol’ me. I’m so grateful.
E looks nice. Me? Not so much. That’s life.
We treated ourselves to a stay in a luxe hotel and lounged by the pool until it became too hot. Eimski and I are both fair-skinned so we didn’t last long.
The 2011 WHCD (or “nerd prom” as it’s known colloquially) came soon after President Obama released his birth certificate. As a result, the liberal-heavy crowd went wild for his opening line “my fellow Americans.”
The video is long at just under 19 minutes, however it’s full of laughs and very much worth watching. The President gets in some jabs at Fox News but also pokes fun at himself.
