I stayed at the Delta and I had to use my last free upgrade to get a better room. Unfortunately, when I got to the room, the air was "different". I felt it was because of the old, dirty carpet. The large king size bed looked good, but when I got in, it was hard as a rock and the pillows were so hard. I finally had to call the front desk to complain and they sent me up some feather pillows to ease the hardness, which did help. I decided to move to another hotel the next day.
Regardless this Delta does incredible work to raise awareness and funds for prostrate cancer. Their 2011 Movember picture is here: Enjoy the spirit and remember Movember next year.
I was surprised that a room such as this was this bad. The Delta is known for its wonderful beds with great pillows and sets, but this room missed the boat. It is in need of immediate renovations. This is the first real issue I had with any Delta and I do believe they will tend to the needs of this room. I also have no problem going back to this or any other Delta. They provide exceptional service and great rooms. I guess even a room has a right to a "bad" day.
I took these pics before I departed to the other hotel. I was able to get a closer view of Signal Hill, the famous Hill where the first trans-atlantic communication to England was sent to.

I moved over to the Sheridan because I decided to give it another chance. I have to say, the Sheridan is a fabulous hotel, with awesome rooms, extremely comfortable beds & pillows with incredible staff. I decided to give them the opportunity to correct their error of not providing me my Starwood points. The view from this hotel is breath-taking.
I had a busy week and took a flight to Deer Lake to go to Corner Brook. I am staying at the Glynmill Inn. It is FABULOUS Inn and I really suggest people try it. The Inn is quaint, with lots of character. It has a great history and warm, wonderful comfortable rooms and beds. The staff and restaurant are wonderful and the food is home-made and really delicious!
Onward to home after another busy meeting day. Now I can finally concentrate on Christmas and getting the little guy ready for Santa.
