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.

    • Stop me if you've heard this one... Once upon a time the USA provided weapons to "Freedom Fighter's" opposed to the Soviet Union's illegal invasion of Afghanistan. FYI:  The war drained huge amounts of life and treasure in a futile attempt to defeat a elusive resistance.  After ten years the Soviets concluded they were on a fool's errand and withdrew in humiliation.  Many believe the war hastened the fall of USSR.  I wonder if there is any lesson to be learned here for those in Washington D.C.?
    • TE George Kittle is one of those TEs not many are talking much about. He comes from the underperforming Iowa team that appears to look like they won't be worthwile for a long while, and just doesn't pop out very much in this loaded TE class. However, his Pro Day turned some heads. George Kettle may not be the guy you immediately see, but he's arguably the 2nd best blocking TE in this class. He can also catch, and has shown the ability to be a threat as a pass catcher. His real scary stuff comes with his amazing redzone performances.  Iowa may have hindered his potential, but he definitely has it. Some extra information concerning this TE: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/college/columnists/chad-leistikow/2017/03/28/george-kittle-nfl-draft-profile-improving-pro-day-hawkeyes/99724056/ Sounds like a solid TE who can be something in the NFL with some work.
