When Hotels Surprise and Delight; Business Credit Cards with No Business; Monkey at Comic Con

You booked a basic room at a hotel.  You get your room key, open the door, and see an amazing suite.  Amazing, you think, but how did I swing that?!

The Hotelion has a great post on the art of saying thank you and showing appreciation.

I’ve been in some amazing suites.


I haven’t always booked a suite when I end up in one.

Once, the manager of a hotel sent out an itinerary of events at the hotel to everyone with reservations.  I wrote back, Thanks!

The manager wrote back, You’re welcome!  Enjoy the suite!

Suite?  I didn’t book a suite.  Sure enough, I show up and find myself in a two bedroom suite.

Believe it or not, this questions gets asked a lot—do you need a business to get a business credit card?
