1 is the loneliest number

I came to St George for work.  I checked in at my regular place, with my regular dude Russ, who takes very good care of me.

He happens to be helping someone else when I walk in, so I go to the other young man at the desk and he proceeds to check me in.  Cheerfully, he informs me he has me in the new building (new suites).  Whoa, whoa, whoa....remember me and my little issue over in the other building?  The wi-fi doesn't work.  No bueno.

Russ is now done with his customer, so he steps over and tells young man to put me in the main building in xxxx room.  Okey doke.  No problem.  Thanks Russ - I can always count on you!

I haul my crap up to the second floor, open the door, and realize that I have been given one of the honeymoon suites.


King size bed with huge headboard.  Lamps with dimmers on either side, leather ottoman at the foot of the bed.  Several pictures of Marilyn Monroe.  Lots of silver, black, red, white and unfortunately, mirrors.

Interesting floor rug.  Don't like to give it too much thought. Who knows what's happened on that rug.  See the reflection in the dresser drawers?  All mirrored.

Fireplace and large plasma tv.  It had been dinked around with, so young man from front desk had to come fix it.  Couldn't do with my Real Housewives of New Jersey tonight you know.

Heart shaped jetted tub in the corner of the room.  Too many mirrors.  And ever since I learned what happens with jetted tubs when they are not cleaned properly (and most places do not clean them properly), I think I'm gonna pass. Besides, last time, I totally slipped and almost fell and that is NOT pretty with all the mirrors around.

The bathroom vanity is beautiful.  Black, black and more black.

Did I mention there are a lot of mirrors?  I love this HUGE red one

My favorite part of all.  The HUGE shower - two shower heads.  Alas, I am but one person.  Maybe I'll turn them both on just for the fun of it.

I'm cracking up at the 70's porn pillows.

The room is very nice.  Beautiful and very romantic.  Perfect if I had Splenda Daddy with me.  But I don't.  Just me.  All alone.  One.  Solitary person.  Boo.  Think I'll just whimper myself to sleep in this huge king size zebra printed bed.

** Shout out to Russ at Best Western Abbey Inn who always manages to make sure that I am well taken care of.**

Score! (but I guess not literally)

All those mirrors would make me nervous.

Ret Rowr!! That is soooooome room.

Too bad Splenda is back at home :(

Vanessa said...

Cue porn music...NOW!

Cheeseboy said...

Holy crud, that is awesome. Looks like a Anniversary Inn room gone wrong. (Actually, all Anniversary Inn rooms have gone wrong, imo.)

The pillows: I would have not touched them.

That place makes me wonder if I should just be grossed out or really grossed out...I'll have to think about it and let you know when I finally decide.

On the other hand, if you could order room service and get bacon, then that place is awesome!


Russ, Russ, Russ, you are toooo nice!
All the mirrors would totally bug me.

Martha H. said...

Oh my! That is one um interesting room, for sure.

Mae Rae said...

This is your form of first class. I have pictures to post of my room too...but it is NOTHING LIKE THIS!

If I could do that tiger roar sound in the back of my throat, I would be doing that for you.
You really should have done a pose with the porn pillows.......ewww or not.
I bet they don't launder those numbers.

Glad you had a nice place.

I guess I don't know about jetted tubs. I would have used it. Thanks for the warning.

Pedaling said...

the image of you slipping out of the bathtub is just a tad bit funny.
mirrors, oh my!
and you are right,
never, never, never jump in a tub that is jetted!

and for the record the anniversary in is kinda fun for a change, cheeseboy!

I'm with Cheeseboy - Anniversary Inn is cheesy. This room is hot. But I prefer not to think of all that has gone on either. I prefer to not think of it everytime I'm in a hotel. Especially because a lot of them don't change the bedspreads inbetween. Sick!

Braden said...

Wow. I almost feel like I need to see my bishop after just seeing the pictures :)

It does beg the question about what is cleaned and how often in these rooms!

" Hit It......." said...

Ewwwwwwwwww..... I have become kind of a germ a fobe. Take that nasty bed spread off. Have fun.

Wonder Woman said...

Wowza! That's quite the room! Our room in Nauvoo was nothing like that. I feel jipped.

Plain Jame said...

I totally stayed there at the Abbey Inn on my wedding night... however, this room was booked. We were fine with our standard room though. We were not observing the ambiance much... ;)

tiburon said...

I hope you and Splenda did that room up right.

Sue said...

grrrr!!! it makes the animal come out.

I gotta say, it beats all the normal, plain ole boring rooms we usually get..

wish splenda would have been there.
