atlantic avenue, hotel experience, intercontinental hotels, umbrella organization, vibrant city, weekend seminar
Here we are in Boston once again. The hubby volunteered to attend the Municipal Government of Massachusetts weekend seminar this weekend because he is chairman of the Board of Selectboard in our town of Blandford. My daughter and I came with him to keep him company during his downtime. We were happy to come because as a family we all love Boston, it is a beautiful and vibrant city, slightly smaller than New York City yet as chockfull of sights to see and things to do as the Big Apple itself.
The hubby has discovered, awhile ago, the best way to enjoy the hotel experience. He became a most valued member of Holiday Inn almost two decades ago. He has since then, graduated to ambassador level, what this means for us, is that at any Holiday Inn establishment, my husband is instantly upgraded to a suite and all the amenities are free. The best part of this, is the fact that the Intercontinental Hotels are in the Holiday Inn umbrella organization, so I am writing this post from our suite in the Intercontinental Hotel on Atlantic Avenue just down the street from South Station.
We’ll be here until tomorrow, maybe stay until Sunday, who knows because since we are staying for free due to the extraordinary amount of mileage that the hubby has racked up over the years, we might as well have a nice weekend all together as a family. Our daughter is reminding us daily that soon she will be off to college and we should appreciate as much time with her as possible. Our son has been out of the house for the past few years so he is home babysitting the dogs, doing us a favor while we visit Boston with his little sister. He is a good young man, our son.
