Greetings and Salutations Doll Friends!!
This past weekend we took a road trip to Missouri and Frann Doll came along with us for the ride! We stayed overnight at the Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Hotel in St. Charles. We've stayed at this hotel chain before and have always had a great experience and this time was no different.
Of course Frann wanted to look around the hotel because she'd never been there before!
Here she is outside the hotel. Isn't it pretty?!
They have pretty flowers planted out front by the drive through luggage drop off lane.
It was a beautiful day the day we stayed, perfect weather!
Here is Frann in the front lobby. I think they look so clean and neat and classy.
There are places to sit and eat and places to sit and relax.
See the neat little sitting area?
Frann had to say hello to the horse of course!
Isn't he nifty?!
They even have a little office area with computers you can use and a printer! They think of everything!
We simply had to take a photo by the pretty blue wall!
Blue is my favorite color after-all.
They even have a little 'store' where you can pick up snacks or little sundries you might've forgotten. Sometimes saving a trip out the store can be a life saver so what a neat idea!
They had this great cow mural...
If you crop it right it looks like Frann is standing next to a field of cows! Eh?
This is where they serve the amazing breakfast in the morning. They really have everything you could think of with their breakfasts! Waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage, bagels, rolls, cereal, toast, fresh fruit, fruit juices, coffee, milk... All of that comes with the price of the room! Amazing huh?
And since we took photo by the blue wall we had to take a couple by the pink one too! Right?
Frann and I were both bummed we forgot to pack our swim suits! It would've been lovely to take a quick dip in the pool!
Oh well, some other time...
There sure was a pretty view out the windows of the pool room though!
Right next to the pool is a little workout room. They even have pairs of earbuds in case you forgot yours. Pretty great right?
Our room was on the second floor and so we decided to take the stairs to get a bit of walking in.
Here is Frann in the hallway of the second floor, where our room was.
We both loved the huge mirror by the plant.
This is the hallway near our room.
Isn't the carpet groovy!!
We walked around a bit just to get some walking in... One thing about road trips is you sit a whole lot!!
Here is the view out the window at the end of our hallway.
Heading back to our room.
Until we found anoother window to look out of...
Finally we made it to our room... For some reason this blurry outtake made me giggle so I decided to post it.
Here's Frann in our pretty suite! Look, there is a little sitting area and everything! How posh!!
"Modern" decor isn't something I like in my own house but I think the motif in this room was very cute and crisp and fresh looking.
Here is the view from the other direction.
And all ready for bed. The beds were super comfie!!
Looking at the map for the trip home the next day...
Don't let Marriott know that Frann brought her new puppy Zoey. Pretty sure pets are a no-no! She couldn't very well leave him at home though, could she. I'm sure they won't mind as he isn't one to make very many messes. Teehee... We had a great time at the Fairfield and look forward to staying at one again sometime in the future.
Till Next Time!
