This key just arrived in our mailbox amongst the regular bills and cut-out coupons. It’s from Room 223 of Westward Ho, which stood where Ace Palm Springs now stands in the mid to late 60s. (HoJo was the middle man in between the two). Some do-gooder dropped it in the mailbox, some 30 odd years late. Thanks, stranger, it’s home now.
We’re taking a mini-vacation (in the middle of my actual vacation yes I know but between health issues, my friend’s work schedule, and the jury duty debacle we kind of needed it) at this lovely resort hotel just outside of Palm Springs. We checked in last night but I noticed that the photos of the room on the website were much nicer and had a much bigger bathtub, so I went down to the front desk to ask what was up, and it turns out that they had photos of the suite instead of photos of a regular room. Guess who got upgraded to that huge-ass suite because of misleading advertising? This place is bigger than a lot of apartments, holy crap. I kind of wish we could stay more than two nights XD
