My name is Leigh Ann and I am a Hotel Snob!!!

Over the years I have become a hotel snob. After working for Delta and having my very nice rooms in excellent locations paid for, it is so hard to go back. It is the same with the free flight benefits that I had for 11 years. It KILLS me to have to pay for tickets now. Anyway, my new job has recently paid for me to stay at the Westin in downtown Atlanta and the Marriott in Dallas. Both very nice hotels with wonderful amenities and comfy cozy beds with tons of pillows and down comforters. There's a reason that they call the Westin beds "Heavenly Beds". Although, I must say that the bed at the Marriott was even better!!!



As you can see, nice Westin bed.
Fabulous view of the city from the 45th floor.
What I could afford in Atlanta this weekend when I had to pay for my own room...
...check out that disgusting comforter. Yuck!!!! What is up with those pillows??? They look like they should be on a toddler bed. I wore flip-flops every step that I took in that room. The 80's artwork was even ugly back then. I guess you get what you pay for, but I must say that it is just so hard to go back to skanky, cheap hotels after you have been spoiled with top notch hotels. What's a girl gonna do, though, when she's on a hotel budget that comes out of her own pocket? Farewell heavenly beds, down comforters, an abundance of big fluffy pillows, nice amenities, fabulous views and great locations. I will miss you!!!!!

I would chose the Westin too! I guess that makes me a snob too.

I knew we had soooo much in common. We stay at so many hotels with all of the boyz sports travels. They just look at me to see what my reactions is going to be when we walk into the hotel room. I've actually been known to throw a a fit or two.... but who's counting?

Oh, my gosh, I'm a total hotel snob, too. I love those Heavenly Beds. My friend actually bought one for her house because she got so hooked on them when traveling.

I had to laugh because I wear flip-flops or socks around hotel rooms, too! My husband thinks I'm a wacko, but if the carpet is "iffy" at all, I don't want to touch it! -Julia :-)

I looooove the Westin! We just stayed at the Westin in New York and it was breath-taking. I didn't want to come home... :)
