So…after driving for close to 9 hours to get from here to the relatives for Thanksgiving (it would’ve been shorter had we not stopped to eat a couple of times and to fill up the tank once) we got to our hotel with some time to kill before meeting up with people after their work hours. We stayed at an Embassy Suites hotel in St. Charles, Missouri. If you’ve never been in one let me say they can be like small cities with the number of floors and rooms on each floor. To while away the time before we met up with the first half of the family (ie. son, his wife, and the grands) I wandered around the hotel with my camera while DH took a nap after all of the driving. What? You thought I helped drive? 😉
The bear and looking up fascinated me the most.
It DOES look like a small city!! You weren’t kidding!! I hope you had a fantastic visit!! –Lisa
I had a great time! And I ate too much 🙂
Lovely share… love the looking up perspective…
Thanks! The looking up had better views than down. Down you saw all of the people milling about.
Love these photos. I especially like the last one with the curved lines along with the straight. Cool bear too!
Ahhhhhhhhh he gets me 🙂 I loved the contrast but yet blending of curved and straight lines in the last two shots.
I’ve never stayed at an Embassy Suites I didn’t like. Very cool architecture. That bear is too cute 🙂
Isn’t it though! I like the suites but when they are packed it gets ridiculous in there.
Glad you had safe travels!
Thanks. We had a really good time.
The newer hotels, with their large atriums and rooms opening to what are, in effect, balconies overlooking the expanse, are really something. And if you’re a fan of Mel Brooks, you can’t help but think of “High Anxiety” as you walk to your room. 🙂
Oh wow!!! Now there’s a reference for you!!!!
