Hotel Sweet Home


This was our home for 11 days and 10 nights while we waited to be moved in to our apartment.  It protected us from the hurricane and provided a very comfortable stay!  We felt like we were living a luxurious life.  However, Brett and I have this theory that the nicer the hotel, the less you get for free.  For example, in some less expensive hotels you get a refrigerator, a microwave, a coffeemaker and have an ice machine on your floor.  Well, in the hotel we stayed at they provide you with a refrigerator but everything else costs extra and there was no ice machine to be found!  Trust me, I looked everywhere because I love ice in my drinks!  One night Brett needed a spoon so he called for one.  They were going to charge him $2.50 to bring up a set of silverware!  He decided he didn't need it that badly.  I don't want it to sound like I'm complaining because we were very grateful that we had a place to stay during the hurricane that had electricity and was far from the flooding!  Every Sunday they serve a world famous brunch in the lobby.  We saw it one Sunday but I forgot to take pictures and I am kicking myself because it was amazing!  The food looked so delicious and it was done so beautifully!  We did not partake since it was $98 for adults!!  So thanks to our hotel for having us as your guests during Hurricane Sandy!  Sorry the pictures are so bad.  They were taken with my phone.

There was always a man out front waiting to hail you a taxi cab with the blow of his whistle.  You can see Brett in the brown coat waiting (Above).
