If you’ve never stayed at a Doubletree Hotel, I’d urge you to consider it for your next overnight stay. Upon check-in, they give you a warm, moist chocolate-chip cookie that is absolutely to die for. In fact, as I read down the ingredients organized by greatest content first, it goes like this: “Chocolate chips, walnuts, flour, butter, sugar…”
Yes, they are more chocolate chip than they are cookie. The second you bite into it, you know… and you love it. If your mouth is already watering, check out www.DoubleTreeCookies.com
I’m indulging in my recently attained Hilton Gold Status that came to me by no other virtue than by having a Visa Signature card (The United Mileage Plus which, incidentally, also got me 50,000 United Miles). They upgraded us to a nice room with a balcony overlooking the Boise river, and gave us free breakfast and drink vouchers. If I can find excuses to make two more stays before the end of August, I’ll maintain my status until 2013. As these things go, once you taste it, you’ve got to have it… so I think I’ll find a way to make it happen.
I guess I’ve become somewhat of a “status snob,” with my newfound affection for first class and hotel perks, I’m really getting into the swing of things.
