Homewood Suites proves Jorge Santayana right

[The workdesk at the Homewood Suites.]

On 11 Sept. 08, IPBiz, in a post titled A must to avoid when in Baltimore , IPBiz recounted some of the horrors of a visit to Homewood Suites in Baltimore. The "good news" on a re-visit on 19 Nov. is that the toilet seat was in fact fastened down. The bad: Picture of fan. Bad news, also picture of fan with switch "on." Picture of phone. Bad news, this is not room 465. Picture of one tabletop. Those circles are "dug into" the top. Further bad news: the "desk" available for using a computer is a trapezoid of depth 1 foot to about 2 foot immediately below a pull out TV screen and immediately adjacent to a soft chair, basically suitable for someone under four feet tall using a microlaptop. Lex Luther, macaw, declined to pose on the chair by the desk, simply because he wouldn't fit, and otherwise did not want his tail crushed. A picture may follow if a suitable camera lens can be found. And, yes, the wind tunnel in the bathroom is still there. As time permits, an mpg file may be added. Those who fail to learn from the past are condemned to stay at the Homewood Suites.
