This is a nice hotel. It would probably be called a mini-suite at a convention center-type hotel. There's a refrigerator, microwave, and sink. Internet access is free and wired, so it's faster and more solid than wireless. I really would like a room like this at a Worldcon.
As we checked in, the front desk staff reminded us, as they had the people ahead of us, that the hotel is right next to the railroad tracks. I said, "Good! Can we get a room overlooking the tracks?" They looked at us strangely, but I'm used to that. The last time we stayed at the Nugget in Sparks, we asked for a room overlooking the railroad yard so we could watch them switch cars in the yard. I doubt they get too many requests like that.
After checking in to the hotel, we walked around the area a while, to get the kinks out of our legs and because we need the exercise on principle. There is a big rib joint just across the road from us, but it was very loud and very busy, so instead we got take-out from Carl's Jr. and Taco Bell, along with drinks from the mini-market down the street, and went back to the room, ate dinner, and relaxed. My only disappointment was that the TV's channels were not those listed on the card by the set, and did not include any way to watch the Giants-Dodgers game. (Got the result on ESPNnews -- Giants beat Dodgers, hooray!)
This was the short leg of the trip. I would have gone to SLO but that hotel costs twice as many Priority Club points as this one. Tomorrow we have a longer journey, but we still plan on taking things relatively easy.
Good thing I have good internet here, and probably will in Moreno Valley tomorrow night. Otherwise I would not have known that I may be part of the L.A.con IV Opening Ceremonies after all. But I need a brown coat like Sparks wore at the Interaction Closing Ceremonies. Eek!
