Fancy AF

This past week I spent some time in Winnipeg for a work function. We were put up in this fancy-ass hotel and I don’t even know how to describe it. It was so fancy. SO FANCY. I have never been in a hotel room like that before. I mean, come on, I’m probably a Super 8/Motel 6 kind of girl. I feel like even Best Western is fancy to me.

But for reals. I had to use my room card to access the floor my room was on. I was denied access to other floors. I also had to put the key card into this slot thing to make the lights in my room work! THE LIGHTS! I forgot to take a picture of it but I was impressed. Apparently this set up is common in Asia according to my Brain Twin, but I’ve never been there before so I have nothing to compare it to. I also made the mistake of putting the card in the device and then removing it when the lights came on. Good thing the rooms are fairly sound-proof because I definitely squealed when they suddenly shut off. Because, I am that cool.

Apparently I really liked the bathroom because I took the most pictures of it. It was like a little private spa room which I really enjoyed. I also liked how there were pump bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the shower while the sink hosted lotion and hand soap. That was pretty cool.

The bed was about the same size as the one at my own home, just without the other body in it. In the second picture you can see the inside of the shower! SCANDALOUS!

There was also a Keurig machine with coffee and tea that I could have used. But I didn’t. Because I am super particular about my tea.

I meant to take a picture of the cool chair and window that were off to the side but I didn’t because I had my clothes for the next day all over it. I meant to take a picture after I had gotten dressed but I completely forgot.

The only other picture I took was of the art on the wall:

So minimalist. Such wow. So fancy.

I really felt out of place in this hotel room. Don’t get me wrong, the Alt Hotel in downtown Winnipeg is a really nice place, I just couldn’t picture myself staying there again. It was just an experience way beyond what I am used to. I don’t do well out of my comfort zone. Maybe it was because of the fanciness or it was because of my brain, but I didn’t fall asleep until like, 3 am. I had to get up at 6 am so  I was running on very little sleep. Even now I’m sick which is probably exasperated by the fact I didn’t get a proper nights sleep.

In the end, it was a fun experience and the staff were all friendly and amazing.

Hoep your Monday is going better than mine!

Good thing it was only for one night or I would have near forgotten my true station in life! 😂
