Doubletree Internet And Other Things We Don’t Need

This is our last gripe session about our trip to Charlotte this past week.  But, this one REALLY gets us.

Let’s do the old MasterCard commercial:

Cost of staying in the Charlotte Doubletree: $143/night

Cost of dinner at the Charlotte Doubletree:  $10/hamburger

Cost of parking at the Charlotte Doubletree:  Kind of forget but, around $10/day

Cost of me, sitting in the parking lot of a cheaper hotel, eating my Doubletree chocolate-chip cookie, sipping on my free Doubletree coffee and STEALING the cheaper hotel’s FREE internet:  PRICELESS!!!

I enjoyed my stay, and I SHOULD have for those kind of prices.  But the fact that, you give me extra warm chocolate-chip cookies upon check-in, a free razor if I forgot one, free toothbase if I forget some, a free comb if I needed one (I don’t), a free USA Today – which nobody ever reads, free soap, shampoo and hair conditioner, free electricity, free water – despite the fact that I run the HOT WATER for 45-minutes to “shower iron” my clothes after traveling coupled with the fact that your  wireless internet access is simply floating in the air and not a soul has to do ANYTHING to provide me access to it, do you REALLY have to charge $9.95 to use the internet, Ya Jagoffs??????
