Doubletree Hotel Did me a Great Service

14 posts in this topic

I screwed up and booked both nights Sat and Sun for the playoff game. I stupidly thought they would allow me to drop the night I did not need, when the date was finalised. I booked well in advance of the Panthers even making the playoffs to insure I would have one of the fine rooms of Doubletree that are only a short stager from BOA. This is not standard policy with the hotel industry. My own ignorance allowed me to make this terrible mistake. Thanks to the nice lady that is in charge of the reservations she allowed me to drop the Sunday night reservation for a small nominal increase in rate. Thanks Doubletree! GO PANTHERS!

I really enjoy staying there. You can stare at BOA while you are going to sleep if you get an upper floor with even numbers.

I must add that ALL Charlotte's hospitallity industry is second to none! (Even the Police, of cource I've never been arrested there but probably should have been. ) I can't wait until the Nascar Hall of Fame opens. I hope everyone saw the Pics of it I posted in the Nascar section. It is at least 25 stories.

Actually no - I thought it was a funny parody of his own thread.

He isn't smart enough to make a parody, though. It's his idea of backtracking.

I actually know him from boards from back 7 and 8 years ago. He's alright. We all have our message board moments.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
