A comedy of errors.

So… day one in Ottawa.  This trip is feeling a bit cursed, but we’re still having a great time.  The drive was pretty uneventful – the five hours went by fast.  The trouble started when we arrived at the hotel.  First of all, the damn thing is surrounded by one-way streets, and we had a heck of a time finding a way to pull into the front drive.  And then, the reservation was screwed up.  My confirmation letter said two double beds, 5 people, $139 a night.  Their computer said 1 person with a single queen bed.  I told the concierge it was wrong and she fixed it, but then informed me that the price was now $169 a night.  What?!?  I nearly had a fit.  She adjusted the price, but wouldn’t give me a straight answer as to whether the price would be honoured when we check out.  Ugh, what a mess.  On top of that, the A/C is busted (the room is sweltering) and we’re on the 14th (actually 13th) floor and in the 14th (actually 13th) room.  It’s a good thing we’re having so much fun.  We did the tourist thing after checking in and took tons of pictures.  I’m looking forward to tomorrow!
