Turning off the fan

I had to travel out of our state for a funeral last month.  Of course, that meant booking a hotel. The only concern, there was only one hotel within the entire town, and it was an antique hotel so protected by the historical society. There were some websites claiming this hotel could be haunted. I didn’t see many ghosts but I did have to suffer with the hotel’s antique amenities. The bathroom was just tiny and the bathroom door didn’t even shut all of the way.  There were only two outlets in the entire room, however, worst of all, was the air conditioning. Because the hotel was such a historic site, the owners could not do any real renovations without receiving approval. Because of this, the only cooling for the room was coming from a noisy mobile air conditioner. This mobile air conditioner wasted a lot of area and looked so out of place in this historic hotel. It was connected to our only window in the room by many adjustable hoses and then duct taped into place.  Overall, I would guess the cooling system lowered the quality of the room by one or two stars. I couldn’t help but to wonder if that was the ONLY chance the hotel had for cooling guests and still keeping their building historic. The hallways and foyer of the hotel were sizzling and humid as there was also no cooling at all in those areas. I’d love to say I will not be going back to that hotel, however, it’s the only one for about 30 miles and I have family in that area. I guess I may visit again anyways.
