Well -- after three months of not posting and miniscule traffic (boy, time flies) I'm now Typepad's best/most profitable customer.
Staying this week at the Wyndham in Andover.
I put the wrong frequent traveller number in my reservation. They actually looked me up and fixed the error.
Said program (Wyndham ByRequest) doesn't give points. Instead, you get free phone calls, free wireless, 500 airline miles, AND a welcome snack of your choice on your online profile (mine is Heineken and chocolate chip cookies) all iced down and waiting for you in your room.
Nice pool and hot tub and a small but serviceable exercise room.
In addition to the beer they had a free bottle of water in the ice bucket. To my surprise, my untouched bottle was freshly iced when I returned today. A small gesture -- but way beyond my expectations for $109/night (I get a killer corporate rate+free breakfast).
Most parking is very distant from the front door making checkin/checkout a real pain.
