Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

This is the perfect challenge to tell you about the wonderful interesting room I had in San Francisco a couple of months ago.  I wanted to support these people because they are from the Valley.  In the pictures the rooms look fabulous.

In their defense, I drove in late, and was lucky to get a room.  I got the last available room, and it was in the basement.

Whoever heard of rooms in the basement? Yes, it had a window.  It was two stories above the ground level.  I know, it confused me, too.  The view was unusual _______.

I didn’t care about outdated wallpaper that didn’t match the vintage of the building.  My worst complaint wasn’t the bath tub.  In fact I looked forward to getting into the spa tub.  Until…

I ran the water.

I didn’t need a soak in tan that badly.  I fell into bed tired and dirty, and after breakfast the next morning decided to just leave.  I phoned ahead for my car because it could take up to 30 minutes to get it.  I went down up to the lobby twenty minutes later, and waited an hour an a half downstairs upstairs.

As old hotels in San Francisco go, this one probably rates better than you might get from my review. My friend Sally rented a brochure room when she stayed there.

    • Happy Father’s Day to you too, Sir. You wouldn’t be wanting a nice relaxing spa???? It doesn’t look much different than the river I swam in as a kid in Punta Gorda, FL. They told us that tannic acid caused the water there to turn orange. I was glad to get home, nonetheless.

  1. Doesn’t your heart just sink, when you arrive at your hotel, expecting what you see in the brochure online, only to find that your room bears no resemblance at all? That bathwater looks gross. 😦

  2. Well it did look okay until I got to the bathtub photo. The worst thing is that if you’d had a shower you would never have known how dirty the water was. I wonder why it was like that?
