OK, I have been to this hotel at least 400 nights in the last ten years, maybe more. Checking in a for a one night weekend stay at the reduced rate, they gave me free parking (17 dollars), free breakfast at the restaurant (normally 29 dollars per person) and my old room! (well not really mine but I have stayed in this one three hundred nights).
And I did not have to mention my obvious fame and fortune as a former Ambassador either! I did mention however that I knew Jasper (not really but it was my reserve comment if needed).
