My inn

I am staying in one of those inns or suites that are pretty common in Dallas - perhaps because they have many big companies who have many assignees (read Indians) who came to United States for a few months to learn the ropes. The inn's setup is usually like this:

They have one main building where the reception is located. There are many satelitte buildings behind or adjacent to this main buildings. In the main building, you find the reception and this lounge decorated like a house's "living room". This lounge has sofas, nice oak tables and chairs and a huge fireplace. This is the place where I eat my complimentary breakfast every morning. I'd love to take a picture of this lounge but I had no opportunity currently because every morning, there are many kwai los having breakfast there and I don't want to look jakun.

Behind this building are the satelitte buildings. They are all built like homes and it looked like a huge mansion. Inside these buildings are the hotel rooms.

The rooms usually have a small living room with a sofa and TV. There's also a kitchenette with dishwasher, fridge, microwave oven and a dining table (see the picture above). There will be a bedroom and a bath, all tastefully placed to make this place cozy and homey like.

Both pictures were taken while I was standing behind the entrance. The second picture shows the bedroom. I have a huge King size bed. Nice! Oh ya.. in my room, just above the TV (if you zoom in) you will see a game controller. I could play Nintendo Gamecube game for a fee. It's expensive.. $6 per hour. Celaka. Anyway, just thought I should mention it.


The picture on the left this was taken from the bedroom to show you the dining table and the entrance. So it is a pretty nice room for US$71 per night. I find the price pretty reasonable especially since I get free broadband. In comparison, Mariott Seoul charges US$200 per night and no free broadband. Broadband in Mariott Seoul cost US$21 for 24 hours. Crap!
