I flew to Vancouver today for a workshop that starts tomorrow. After a bit of Internet research, I decided to stay at the downtown Vancouver Sandman hotel, partly because of the hotel's proximity to where the workshop is being held, and partly because of the price ($50 less, on average, than other hotels in the area).
When I checked in earlier this morning, they upgraded me from a double bed to a king-sized bed. Just now, one of the hotel staff dropped by room and dropped off a gift basket. When I asked her why I was being given a gift basket, she didn't know.
I am impressed, but I'm also a little confused. What the heck is going on here?
