During Blog World in LA, I stayed at the Westin Bonaventure. It was overall a very nice hotel, with a lovely bathroom and very comfy beds, and I’ll do a full review to tell you all about it next week. But they were missing one thing, one important thing: plugs! Business travelers need plugs. Heck, regular travelers need plugs. Everyone needs plugs!! I crawled along on the floor looking for outlets near the desk—nothing. In order to plug my phone in next to my bed I had to muscle the freaking heavy nightstand out of the way to get to the surge protector behind it, and then had to unplug the alarm clock. But no matter where I looked, I couldn’t find a plug to use for my computer. So I ended up charging it in the safest of places—the bathroom. Sigh.
One of my blog friends said that she found plugs somewhere on the front of the desk, so I looked there too. As you can see, nothing.
Last night I stayed in an Embassy Suites that had tons of plugs, and my blogger’s heart sang.
Readers, do hotels usually have enough outlets for you? I would say my luck is usually half and half.
