Bloggin at the pool

Hello, blogger buddies. I had grand plans of blogging through our entire stay but the Crowne Plaza thinks it's perfectly acceptable to charge $10 per day for internet service. I, on the other hand, think that's a rip off along with $28 per day valet parking.

I've stayed at many places from the Crappy Shack ( where just getting to your room is a matter of life and death. No seriously, I watched a dude pull a gun on another dude and some scary dude broke into our car in less than 10 seconds to help my mom get the keys out that she had locked in. I turned on the TV and porn was on. Not Disney! ) to the Westin La Cantera in the fancy shmancy part of San Antonio. I can honestly say that Holiday Inn Express has been the most consistent and the best value. Free breakfast, a mini fridge, free parking,free wifi and a coffee maker. Crowne Plaza makes you pay for breakfast. And no Diet Coke in the vending machines. *gasp*

Still, I'm having a great time. I'll tell you all about it as soon as I can get some free wifi  (home) and download some pictures.

In the meantime, check out this wicked awesome tostada burger from Chris Madrid's in San Antonio. Complete withmounds if cheddar, beef, refried beans and tortilla chips.

NOTE: So I hope this works because blogging from a cell phone us foreign to me. Plus I just had a tequila on the rocks by the pool. (That feeling you're having right now is envy. LOL Kidding!)

  2. Glad you're having a good time - I agree, it seems the more expensive the hotel, the less you actually get.

  5. It's amazing how some hotels still think they can charge so much for internet! Most places it's free. Enjoy! :)

  6. Sorry the Plaza isn't what you expected. Sometimes that happens when you stay in a new place. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. :)

  7. I go on a blogging vacation and you have the nerve to turn 40 and do it in THE place I want to visit the most in the whole USA?! Yes, that feeling I'm have IS envy!

    Seriously, glad this was such a great celebration for you, even if they did want $10 for the internet. Stupid expensive hotels!
