We rolled the dice a few months ago and booked a flight and hotel in Seattle for June. I was just playing around with flight prices and saw some great deals. Not knowing if things were going to be open or not we booked the flight anyway. It paid off.
We stayed at the Courtyard Marriot Seattle Downtown. It was nice. I asked for a view when we checked in and the front desk clerk said she couldn’t change our room because we booked the room with Expedia. I do recommend booking hotel rooms directly through the hotel itself. Best way is to pick up the phone and call them. I should have done that.
Oh well, our room was on the 12th floor and we did have a nice view of the Columbia Center building. There was a building that provided services for the homeless next to our building and I saw some interesting things in the alley below. Interesting things!
