A suite deal

We arrived safe in Osaka this afternoon. We took the “bullet” train down from Tokyo. Boy that was fast, only 2.5 hours. When we arrived at the hotel, we were told there was a problem with our reservation. They had no regular non-smoking rooms left that would fit the 4 of us.

However, they did have one non-smoking room that would. It’s their Executive Suite, a large corner room on the 14th floor! So, I’m in this large (by Japanese and many American) room for the next 2 nights. There is a large entry, 2 bathrooms, a sitting room with a 54 inch tv, a bedroom with 2 double beds and a 28 inch tv. Lots more space than we were expecting or really need. The best part is they are just charging us the regular room rate, yet I checked and this one is worth a LOT more  🙂

We were going to have a DVD player hooked up, but the settings are incompatible with American DVD discs so they had to take it away. Instead, they are giving us all the pay-per-view movie channels FREE (normally about $15/day).

Better get off now and go explore, but thought you’d enjoying hearing about this. More when I can.
