MAY 2015

For most of the time that the two RV Gypsies were in San Diego, their RV (their only home) was in repair at the San Diego Freightliner, making them "homeless" in San Diego. During this time, they spent several nights sleeping in their RV on the street in front of Freightliner (A stupid idea that Lee had, despite Karen's objections). Then they stayed one night at the Hilton Hamptons. Their RV still wasn't ready so they went to the Embassy Suites. Then they found out their RV still wasn't ready, so they returned to the Embassy Suites again. The two RV Gypsies liked the Embassy Suites much better than the Hilton Hamptons, because it was a suite, not just a bedroom, although the price was similar. The only negative at the Embassy Suites was that it cost $25 to park because the hotel does not own the parking garage.

The two RV Gypsies relaxed in the air-conditioned suite that featured a refrigerator, flat-screen television, extra sink and cabinet outside of the bathroom. The bathroom with shower/tub combinations featured complimentary toiletries and hair dryers. Conveniences included phones, as well as desks and complimentary newspapers. They also enjoyed the recreational amenities, including an indoor pool, a spa tub, and a sauna. And there was even a complimentary one-hour reception, held daily, with unlimited drinks of our own choosing at the bar/lounge. And of course, a complimentary breakfast complete with made-to-order omelets.

When the two RV Gypsies returned to their room after eating, they found a lovely note, a bottle of champagne and a plate of different cheeses. At first Karen thought it was delivered to the wrong room until she read the note. Earlier, Lee had made conversation with staff member, Jennifer, and then she sent the thoughtful items to the room. Karen sure felt special. Thank you Jennifer & staff.

This hotel had an outdoor pool (too cold to use it) but no hot tub. Airplanes flew overhead and were very noisy. The rooms were average. Standard free breakfast in the bland lobby. $148 a night and it was nothing special.
