I stayed at the Tokyo Marriott on a recent trip for just one night, but this was the second time I stayed there. However, this was the first time I had time for breakfast. The previous trip, I had an early departure time and had to run out before breakfast. At this Marriott - which has some terrific gardens that I'll post about another day here on the blog - is a converted hotel, so it wasn't built as a Marriott . So, the layout isn't traditional, or at least traditional in my mind when it comes to a hotel layout. The check-in desk is buried about half-way "back" in the hotel and is small and cramped with a low ceiling. In "front" of that check-in desk area is a giant atrium. In the center of the atrium is the restaurant where they serve breakfast. It is free for certain Marriott Rewards Bonvoy Members, so when I showed up, there were plenty of folks eating there. The breakfast offerings are pretty robust and they have quite a few West

I spent some time last month back in Japan, this time in Nagoya. This was my second time in Nagoya - the first was a few years ago when I visited for the Cherry Blossoms . Sure, there are plenty of things to see around town, but let's start with the Marriott Associa Hotel. I stayed on an upper floor and had a room with a twin bed. But the carpet in the hallway right by the elevators? Beautiful, isn't it? Reminds me of Spaceship Earth. Am I nuts? Or just Disney Drunk? Or maybe the pyramid that the holistic healer placed over George's head?
A week or so ago, I posted a coaster from the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs here in the [ coaster collection ] that made it the #21. Today is another sweet hotel - the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas - that is now #22. I stayed at the Adolphus for a few nights and had a huge room. I guess I shouldn't expect anything less down in Texas, right? I have a soft spot in my heart for vintage, old-fashioned hotels and the Adolphus lived up to it's billing.
Went to the same place. Stayed at the same hotel. Only this time, on a quick trip to Denver, I *did* get a shot of the mountains. Two years ago, I posted this sad photo of the mountains from a Denver Marriott and I was determined to not repeat the feat. I snapped this photo out the little window in my room. Still not exactly the way one would want to see the local community right? I mean, there isn't much more to Denver than what is in between the airport and the DTC , right?
