I picked up Ms. Lin from the airport, had lunch, and went back to the Residence Inn by Marriott on Pico and S Beverly Drive. It's really just a place to sleep and too bad. There was a fully loaded kitchen and an empty fridge for us to use. Unfortunately Ms. Lin and I were just really there for sleeping at night and if that! =9 We arrived and valeted our car. It's quite expensive to park for the night, $22. At first I was really skeptical about staying in a hotel that's far off in nowhere land. It actually has a bunch of stores around and it's not too far from great stores.
They surprisingly had 2 full bathrooms, one inside the bedroom and one outside. I found that odd, but I guess it's for the person who might be sleeping on the couch. There was two flat panel TVs to watch. We really didn't spend that much time there but it seemed like a decent room. At check out they told Ms. Lin that they gave us a bigger suite and asked how she liked it. I think it's because she is an Elite member. Guess it paid off somewhat! You don't get a free bottle of water but they will give you a bigger room. You know what... I'll take it! ^_-
