My trip to Atlanta is slightly over a month away and I’ve not done any real planning. I reserved my space at the conference that I’ll be attending and I kinda-sorta booked my hotel (see Hyatt Regency Atlanta).
I waited a little too long to book my room at the conference hotel. Right now I have 4 of the 5 nights that I’ll need secured. I’m on a waiting list for the last night of the conference. When I first called and made the reservation the woman told me that the rooms were awarded in order of who was put on the list first. Well I called back to see how many people were on the list and this time the guy said… “A handful, but if you call back and a spot happens to open up and you’re on the waiting list, we’ll give you the slot!” So I can get my own “Go to the Head of the Class” pass if I’m diligent and stalk the reservation hot line.
Since this is primarily a business trip I’m going to wait until Monday to call and make reservations at a nearby hotel for the same time period, in case that last night doesn’t open up. I have some options and I guess I need to figure out what the heck I’m doing.
Following the conference I’ll be on vacation, hopefully will visit some friends in the Atlanta area and maybe a stop and visit a friend along my way home.
I think it will just be nice to be away from work for two weeks – one of which I’m technically @ work.
