This morning I woke up (sort of) somewhere between 5 and 7 local time. I took a shower, and the complimentary shower accoutrement were really nice. Soap that didn't make my skin feel one size too small or me, and nice shampoo that made my hair feel good. Plus one for the Sandman for that. On the downside, it appears that my television doesn't work, not that that really matters as I'm going to have about 5 minutes to watch it on this trip. I should probably at least tell the front desk though.
The Sandman in downtown Vancouver. What can I say. I'm a business traveler, more than that, I'm a sysadmin of a couple of important systems. I need 24/7 internet access, and this hotel doesn't have wireless high speed internet access anywhere but the lobby. I like a few things in a hotel, a reasonable bed, an air conditioned room, but for me, high-speed is a must have. If I had money I would go some place else right now. Not only that, but my cell-phone doesn't work here so I am totally out of contact. I'll have to look into the cell phone thing if we end up coming up here more often if we decide to work with the folks here. I am full of unhappy right now. I have work to get done damn it.
