Still here in Denver at the Courtyard where the air conditioning kerfuffle occurred.
With some time before heading to the skilled nursing facility to see my mother I had the breakfast buffet at the hotel for the first time this week. It was good, and costs 11.95 for the meal.
As I checked out the hostess asked if I had been there all week, and I answered yes I had. She asked if it was a business trip (most of the guests are here for some business reason) and I told her that I was seeing my mother and the reason why. She crossed out the meal ticket bill and said, "this is on me, and I hope your mother knows how much you care."
Good people make great hotel experiences.
