Complimentary Room Upgrade

The living area.

And we are now in San Antonio, Texas.  My darling daughter is very excited that we are staying at La Quinta Inns & Suites.  I don’t know but she likes staying at La Quinta.  Anyway, after six hours long drive we arrived San Antonio safe and sound.  Although we had a disappointing experience along the way, still I am very much thankful for the safety.

The check-in time at the hotel was after 3:00 P.M. and we were still on the road.  So we called and told the hotel font desk staff that we will be late checking in.  We arrived at around 4:00 P.M. and headed directly to the front desk/check-in counter.  I thought the check-in would be fast and we expected to have our room ready since it was already way passed the check-in time.  But the room I reserved was not ready yet.  They were so behind with stuff.  The lobby was packed with guests waiting to check-in.  The front desk staff who’s helping my husband was very helpful though.  Within 10 minutes she got us checked-in.  Unexpectedly, they gave us a complimentary upgrade to King Executive Suite.  Paying the standard room rate…awesome.  The only thing I didn’t like is that we had to pay parking fee per day.  The staff said it’s a City Ordinance.  Oh well.

But I love our room.  🙂
