Somehow, in the last 24 hours I've managed to have two hospitality industry experiences that have eluded me thus far: a relaxing and enjoyable hotel room and a bagel store that doesn't suck--indeed, far from it. I'll start with the hotel. I booked a room at The Cove of Lake Geneva,
which at slightly north of $200 was a splurge for me. However, the last time I paid $150 for a room (in Boston), I had to call the front desk to send security up because a couple was noisily having sex in the next room. So to pay $200 for a room that accomplished the mission of rest and relaxation seems like a square enough deal. Also, I booked with 72 hours' notice on Memorial Day weekend, so the room cost about half again as much as it would have otherwise.
