Conference Chronicles: Oh that Hotel!

The Hyatt Place UC Davis was the primary hotel for the Pavement LCA 2014 conference last week in Davis, CA and it certainly lived up to the Hyatt name, what with the excellent service, food and the complimentary bicycles, the first time I've even heard of such a thing at a hotel. Given that the conference was small, just about everyone at it was at the hotel, which could thus double up as a socializing point over the scrumptious breakfast.

Oh, the breakfast, how I will miss it! From the fruits to the french toast to the oh-so-delicious house burger, I don't remember the last time I ate so much food in one meal! Surely, all the weight I gained over the conference was entirely because of the breakfast there.

The biggest problem with the hotel, as with all of Davis, was that the water was very hard and getting soap off you was quite a challenge with every shower. But then, the profuse apologies from the hotel quite made up for it, especially given that the state is going through a historic drought. And then, the complimentary bikes were the icing on top of the cake. Overall, a great place to stay!
