While I love everything that American Airlines stands for, how they contribute to the eWomenNetwork Foundation and helped sponsor my trip and how Nora, the VP of Women’s Sales is so fabulous…..I can’t get over the fact that their seats are so close together and it’s such a tight fit to travel with them.
I was praying the whole way that a seat in First Class would open up!
The car service wasn’t all that either mind you. Don’t get me wrong…thank GOD I HAD car service since the taxis there were like hungry piranahs. But the driver made me walk all the way out to the parking lot instead of being picked up curbside (and in high heel boots mind you!) then he had run out of waters and the car smelled of smoke.
I grinned and beared it of course cuz after all, that’s not all that important. He did stop for water and ran the air to get fresh air in the car since we had a 1 hour car ride to my hotel in stop and go traffic — it was only 3 pm! WOW! That’s some traffic here in Chicago I tell you; I’m not used to that. (pic is of city from inside taxi)
Finally, I arrived at my luxurious Kimpton Hotel in downtown Chicago, walked in and immediately felt the warm fire burning (it was 54 degrees here) and the welcolming environment. My room is wonderful and I chose to stay in at the hotel tonight so I could catch up on some reading and blogging! The food was exquisite and now I’m online telling you all about it.
