Dear W Hotels – Stop With The Impossible To Understand Room Categories

Trying to figure our what type of room you’re booking is difficult enough without hotels giving fancy names to the categories. No hotel is worse when it comes to that than the W Hotel chain. I discovered these strangely named room categories when booking a stay at the W Hollywood. Remember, they’re the hotel that told us we needed to bring our party game with us.

Since I was booking with points, I could only book the base level room if there was one available. Here were the room categories I had to choose from:

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Beverly, The Drink at Epcot’s Club Cool That People Love To Hate

I bet you’ve done it. Or if you haven’t, you know someone who’s done it. Or you know someone who’s been a victim of it.

You’re at Epcot and you stop at Club Cool, over in Future World. You grab cups and tell you friend/family member/whoever to, “Try the Beverly…it’s delicious!” They take a sip and…

Yeah, it’s pretty gross.

So what IS it about Beverly that most people just…hate?

My Current Pet Peeve With Hotels

If you travel enough, there will always be something that bothers you. Sharon’s written about the behavior of people at airports. Personally, I’m always aggravated when hotels don’t put enough power outlets in a room but I can forgive hotels for that (well, to an extent) because maybe when the room was designed, people didn’t plug in as many things. My current pet peeve is different and something is so simple for a hotel to fix that I can’t stand when I have to deal with it.

New Airlines Included in TSA Pre-Check, What Happens When You Accidentally Say You’re A Terrorist On A Aviation Form, & More!

Happy Sunday to all of our travel friends, near and far! Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.




  • After a multi-month long update, the second half of the World of Disney at Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs shopping and dining district reopened earlier this week. Jeremiah of Laughing Place gives a tour of the store’s new look, as well as two new merchandise lines that have started.
  • Lastly, I’d like to congratulate Ben (Lucky) from One Mile at a Time on his recent marriage. If you’d been following his blog for a while, you’ve been along for the ride from when he first mentioned Ford, now his husband, on the blog to their surprise engagement trip and now their wedding. I mean, who doesn’t like looking at wedding pictures?
