Happy Election Day!
Since I’m in Miami today, I voted early on Friday. This is the third presidential election I’ve had the right to vote in (see my post about voting in 2008!), and I never plan to take that right for granted for a second. No matter your political affiliation please exercise your right to vote today. (unless you voted early or sent in an absentee ballot – then ROCK on 😉 ).
Have you voted yet? What are you waiting for?! Do it!
It’s hard to escape the amazing views this hotel has to offer of Miami.
View from the treadmill.
(I ran 3 miles while watching election updates on the Today Show)
View from breakfast.
If you are a frequent traveler and don’t belong to any hotel rewards programs – why not? They’re usually free to sign up for and once you earn enough points you get great rewards, like access to a delicious concierge breakfast buffet.
I ended up not touching the oatmeal and instead went back for seconds of eggs and fruit (and bacon!). Yum!
Do you see that bridge? The big one in the back?
That’s the bridge we ran over (TWICE!) for Miami 70.3 two weeks ago. My legs started hurting just looking at.
A couple of notes:
- I left my phone charger at home (boo!) and tried the trick I’ve seen on Pinterest where you ask the front desk for an extra charger since – apparently – so many people leave chargers behind (I’ve left more than one charger behind in my day, so I like to think of it as paying it forward). It didn’t work. They didn’t have one, nor did the hotel next door. There’s a Best Buy Mobile nearby that I plan on hitting up ASAP.
- After breakfast, I went to what I thought was my hotel room only to realize my key didn’t work. Turns out that wasn’t my hotel room. I remembered the last two numbers of my room, but not the floor it was on – whoops! I went to three different floors before I finally found the room that was actually mine. Doh!
Have you ever had luck asking the front desk for a phone charger? Have you ever forgot your hotel room number and had to try a couple of floors before finding the one that was actually yours? 😉
