The Dean to the Rescue: Providence, RI

September 7, 2016

Ever had one of those trips where you arrived just to find out that the arrangements that you thought were made were not made? Like, you go to the hertz lot on the shuttle and they don’t have you in their system? Good thing for the Presidential level status at Hertz. And also good thing the Dean was able to find some room at the inn! (shew)

The news was not all good, though. Room 415 and its type were all booked up. But sometimes providence shines on you (who could resist that line?), and as it turns out room 401 is ever better than 415. Why? Because the bathroom is bigger and the shower is even more glassy! Hot damn.

401 has room for a bed

Extra chair in the bathroom?  OK

It’s nice to be back, and nice to discover a cheaper room category more suited to NPS. I think I have a new favorite room.

Next up, a drink or two at The Magdalenae Room and dinner at the recently James Beard adorned Persimmon.
