Here's a new one that I haven't seen before. I'm looking at a room at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento for a few nights in the fall on a paid stay. I'm not yet sure if this will be a solo trip or not,...

I don't mind the Thann, but whenever I see thisworks (which I think was at a Radisson?), I'm always tempted to sigh, shurg, and say "Well, I guess this works...". I'm guessing though that my middling...
