Hovel

My hotel room in Manhattan is swanky, but it's a hovel. A 12 x 12' closet with a window that overlooks a brick wall. I'm not making this up. For this, I pay a discounted corporate rate of $280/night.

I also get to be awoken at 6am by the alarm clock, set by the previous occupant. Isn't it the job of the cleaning staff to ensure that the alarm isn't set between guests? Apparently not at this hotel. Perhaps it's part of the closet experience.

The food at the NYC office (both lunch and dinner) is much better than what we get in Reston. Makes me miss being in a real office, but I sure don't miss the traffic.
