I recently had an opportunity to stay at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles. I’ve traveled a bit over the years and stayed in decent hotels, but never in a five-star hotel. Shoot, maybe the Four Seasons is only a four-star hotel, but oh my gosh, it’s gorgeous. What a special treat!
The three of us called ourselves “queens” and we stayed in two adjoining rooms. I drew the short straw and had the pleasure of sleeping on a rollaway, while the other two slept in the king-size beds. The bed was just too small for me, but really, I was only in the bed for six hours. Tee hee.
Anyway, the rooms were beautiful. Large bathroom with double counters, a sunken tub, and a frameless shower door. An enormous television that noted “Hello Leslie Wolchuck” when you turned it on. We ordered room service for dinner (which was quite expensive!) and had breakfast in the hotel restaurant. We spied Katie Couric having breakfast as well, so we had a celebrity sighting too!
This is a perfect hotel in a perfect location for movie stars and businessmen. Obviously, we didn’t fit into either category, but after all these years of making travel arrangements for bosses, I can see why they want to stay in a place like the Four Seasons. And the client gladly will pay for it too.
My only complaint about the rooms we stayed in? One of the lampshades was crooked. I probably should have called housekeeping.
