ShockedDisapproveOhhhhNO! Not another 'Corporate-Invented Greeting' being screamed in our faces for a VERY overpriced hotel chain! Now, mind you, it gets worse. *I* occasionally stay at Marriott Courtyard, which is the low-priced (if you want to call $150/night 'low-priced') as long as I can write it off...and they just aren't special enough to be allowed to greet me with any stinkin' 'Bonvoy!', which they will not because I just best this only pertains to the regular Marriotts...and what does it matter to me, anyway? Not like I am staying there on vacation, no - I'm always working.
Really, this is utter B.S. - just who can afford those kind of rates? What do you get besides some stinkin' sleep and ever-so-closer to broke? It just isn't fair for the average man.
Bon-shove-it, thank you very much.
If you really care, give me a huge discount, or make it a lot easier for some free nights.
How about 'BaDa Boom BaDa Book'?

In the first half of the ad, I can't even understand what they are saying.  Is "Bahn-foy" a Chinese swear word...?   Wink LOL

Back when the wife and I were dating, (long distance relationship).  We would sometimes meet in Kenosha at the Comfort Inn & Suites.  Lots of good restaurants within walking distance.

The drive from the north side of Indy to the Oshkosh area was about 6 hours, 360 miles.  I didn't mind taking the longer leg of the drive, about 4 hours to the Illinois/Wisconsin state line. I loved this hotel! The suites were actually 2 rooms, 2 TVs, a sofa and other amenities. Only about $127 a night.



I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

ConfusedSoooooooooooo....the Inquiring Mindless NEED TO KNOW! You drove 6 hours and change to hook up and you got a hotel room that only had ONE BED?! Where did you sleep? On the sofa, or was that only when she paid for the room? $127 per night and NOT charged back to your company?! *I* would have negotiated *3* nights if it was out of my pocket or we would've gotten sticky in the back seat, then gone and rented out showers at the Pilot Truck Stop, or something (but I'd be real sweet and buy her 3 T-shirts for $10, just like at any truck stop). A room at that rate REALLY impacts the beer budget and would force me to make a romantic evening out of a dinner at McDonalds where I'd let her play in the kiddie area/ball pit and let her use their free WIFI.

One bed?  That's kinda the whole idea, Paw! Wink  I usually paid for everything.  She brought her own t-shirts.

For my next trip to the GreatWhiteNorth, I think I'll rent a room at a Marriott, pick up a hot hooker and leave the door open and call the front desk with the phone speaker on while exclaiming, "BonVoyYoyYoooooyYoooooOOOOOOOOoo!!!" at the 'magic majaculate moment'.

Or maybe I'll have a beer and watch the idiot box and go to sleep.
