Hyatt House - Devine!!
Now let's talk about breakfast. We went from the usual muffins, doughnuts, cold cereal on styrofoam plates and plastic silverware to a hot breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs, hashbrowns, toast, fresh fruit bowls and hot oatmeal with sides of raisins, brown sugar, toasted pecans...fresh juices, oh it was so wonderful.
And now let's rave about the staff for a minute. I called to see if we could drop off our luggage early. Willy said yes, but when we arrived at 11am, he said my room was ready. I knew I was gonna love this guy and sure enough, I did.
I asked about parking the car at one of these places where you catch the double-decker buses for a sightseeing tour. He had a better idea. A private car and driver for a 9 hour tour of Hollywood, Rodeo Drive, the stars' homes, plus numerous beaches. Did it cost me more? Yes, but instead of $68 for a 2-hour tour on a bus full of strangers I had a private tourguide who let me wander as long as I wanted, wherever I wanted, and managed to show me a CA I'd never have seen otherwise. Even though we'd rented a 2012 Mustang Convertible we'd never have found all these incredible places. Money well spent.
Next time you travel, do look for one of these hotels. I see they're located from Raleigh to Boston so you know I'll be booking rooms for my trip to New England in September. And if you find yourself in the Los Angeles/Anaheim area of CA, tell Willy I sent you.
