OT More trouble with the Hilton
They don't list what they havent' got.
It suddently occured to me: Is it possible the room in Dallas won't have
a bathtub? I stayed one day at the Hilton in Heathrow, 50 yards from
the airport, and that room didn't have one, but that was a room they
gave me just until the next plane left around 6PM. I figured it wasn't
a real room. (The plane in Philly had a flat tire, and it took an hour
or two to change it, and I missed my connection in London.) And it was
England. Who knows what goes on in England!
So I called the hotel tonight and indeed, it doesn't have one. I didn't
get around to teling her about the wedding, and for about $30 more, I
could have an accessible bathtub.
An accesible bathtub isn't much of a bathtub, is it? Is this the same
thing we talked about here? Where you have to sit on a bench and don't
get wet above your belly button, if that much?
Then she said that for 320 dollars a night I could have a room with two
bathrooms. But I don't think that means for sure it will have even one
So I'm looking at the web, and it lists for the Lincoln Centre Hilton in
Dallas, a bunch of kinds of rooms, and you can click on Amenities, and
the "Amenities" are exactly the same for every kind of room. Even the
accessible rooms list the same thing: "For your Convenience
Bathroom Amenities ...." But they don't say what they are. One kind
of room has "Additional Bathroom Amenities and Hilton Robes" but they
don't say what they are.
Frankly, I don't think they have bathrooms either. If it has no bath,
but could have had one, it's not a bathroom.
I should stay at the Motel 6. They have bathtubs.
I coudln't get straight if the problem is that they've rented all the
rooms with bathtubs in my price range, since it's only 36 hours in
advance, or if they just don't exist. Her accent was too strong for me
to understand everything she said, and I don't think she understood my
quesiton about this. Maybe when dawn comes, also come native English
speakers? Or at least 9AM.
Here is the list, the same for every room. They have duvet covers,
whatever those are, but no bathtubs. No notations about what they
don't have. Perhaps they don't have hot water.
