Country Inn and Suites Mishawaka Presidential Suite Stay

We have been traveling to a few colleges for Daughter this fall. She participates in an over night stay and attends a class on campus.  Most of the time someone travels with me but this visit was a Sunday night so I was traveling by myself.  Since it was going to be a quiet night of cable tv and magazines I splurged on a whirlpool room for this stay for $20 more than a king room.

Upon arriving to the most empty hotel I was told by the front desk that I had been upgraded.  What is an upgrade on a whirlpool room?  The presidential suite.

Me, myself and I enjoying a bathroom bigger than my bedroom at home.

The large whirlpool tub was in the bathroom.  I also had two sinks, a large counter top, large shower and the toilet was in a small separate closed area.

On the way to pick up some Steak and Shake I called Husband to report on the room upgrade.  It was amusing to me that I had this great upgrade and no one to enjoy it with.

Just inside the entry was a mini fridge, wet bar area and a microwave.

Then a large living room with a couch, coffee table, chairs and a desk.

The coffee table made an impromptu dining area while I enjoyed my garlic sliders and cable tv.  I love their shakes and I had a decent coupon for my meal but I still felt a little silly carrying the bag of burgers into the suite.  It did not take me long to remember why we do not have cable tv, hundreds of channels and nothing to watch.

The large bedroom housed a king bed and second tv through the door on the side of the living room. I heard no noise as I slept in the huge king bed even though I faced the street.

As you can imagine I had an excellent stay at the Mishawaka Country Inn and Suites.  The whirlpool tub was very comfortable while I caught up on some of my travel magazines.  The tile surround held my strawberry shake as I relaxed in the hot water after my dinner.  Relaxation and quiet!

This hotel is in a great area for shopping and dining.  The hotel is about five miles from Notre Dame University and half a mile from the University mall.  They have a small pool and ample free breakfast in the morning.

The rate for a whirlpool room is $116 a night plus tax, you can have the Presidential Suite for $134.  For the extra $18 I would book the suite for space even if you are traveling with a family.

Use the Club Carlson App for a Bonus 3,000 Points

I did two things today to save myself money and to earn more points.  I checked the price on a reservation I had made weeks ago for an upcoming long weekend.  The price was lower by ten dollars.  I will 99% of the time only book a refundable rate so I was able to cancel and re-book the same room for the lower price.

And I had seen that Club Carlson is running a promotion that give you an extra 3,000 points if you book your room through the app through the end of 2017. So I re-booked my room through the app to earn the extra 3,000 points.

Earn 3,000 Bonus Gold Points® when you complete a stay booked via the Club CarlsonSM mobile app*. One quick download and you’ll have benefits at your fingertips:

  • Get instant access to over 1,000 Carlson Rezidor hotels worldwide

  • Access your digital Club Carlson member card

 

More information here on the bonus promotion with Club Carlson: https://www.clubcarlson.com/offers/8667119

Usually I save between 10-20 dollars on a re-book that only takes me a couple of minutes to check.  What is the most you have saved on a hotel re-book?

Country Inn and Suites New Orleans

Country inn & suites NOLA

A post shared by Stretchingittotravel (@stretchingittotravel) on

We had a slight mishap when we were leaving the airport.  Life had been a little beyond crazy and I had forgotten to update the GPS.  I got in the car and started to type the hotel and it found nothing.  Nothing at all for Louisiana.  We are NOT stellar with maps, even less so in the dark on a very busy night on highway 10.  There was a football game Saturday and the highway was jammed.   It was not a great start to our time.  Daughter was able to get directions on my phone and was helping navigate us around.  Much easier when its not bumper to bumper traffic but we found the hotel a short time later in the business district.

Don’t be Irish Only on St. Patrick’s Day

A few years back a family member invited us to an Irish musical festival. Having no plans for the Saturday we took them up on the offer and found a new genre that we loved.  Usually for one weekend in September we transfer from being Dutch to finding our Irish side.  This year we expanded our Celtic side over Labor Day weekend also.
