It "Pays" to have "Privileges"

Most exciting news today ...
other than my plane not crashing and not sitting next to any stinky person.
Aside from that - most exciting news.
When I booked my hotel here in Vancouver, BC for the Autism conference I requested the cheapest room the downtown Comfort Inn had. A small double bed. On average, the cost per night was $80. VERY reasonable for downtown Vancouver, especially since a breakfast is complimentary at the Pub next door, as well as complimentary passes to the Steve Nash gym.
When I checked in I was delighted to be told that as I was a Choice Privileges member, they had upgraded my room to a suite.
No kidding.
A $126/night week for the price of a double. How delicious!
I almost started giggling I was so delighted.
Then I got to my room ... and it only got better!

Chrissy - All you have to do is sign up, it's free! I bet you can even do it at their website. I did it while I was staying at one a few summers ago.
Jerry says it's a scam because they "sell" your information.
Dude - I can handle some crap mail if I they'll upgrade me to a suite!
