Traveling Food

We had occasion to stay in a Marriott Courtyard recently. They  redesigned their lobbies and opened Marriott Bistros. The lobby is like a giant living room with a fast-causal  restaurant attached. There is free WI-fi. The concept  is meant to appeal to the business traveler. They are open for breakfast and dinner. The limited menu is very similar to Starbucks concept. In the evening a portion of the counter is opened with alcoholic beverages. On our visit it was very comfortable and convenient for us not to have to venture beyond the hotel. The food was very good and the prices reasonable. If you have to travel for business it is nice to be comfortable.

Good to know about these. I wonder if they are pet friendly? I'll check in to it.

Can you have a Starbucks Irish Coffee?

For some reason they hide the booze in the morning.If you look at the picture under the t.v. the green flowers is where it hides. The Starbucks lattes are unique because
they come from an automatic machine.
