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I didn’t care about outdated wallpaper that didn’t match the vintage of the building.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 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.

    1. Probably rusty. I doubt if they rent that room often. I should have run the shower, but at night I’m cold, and I love to soak up the heat. I just didn’t want to soak up the color, too! :)

    1. My heart was tired and already sunk, but at least I had a place to stay that ONLY cost $200 a night plus parking. I was a lucky girl! The big question was why did I think I wanted to stop for the night in SF?

    1. 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.
