hat’s not to love about staying in nice inns and hotels? We drop used towels on the bathroom floor and come back to find clean, fluffy
ones on the rack. We love room service, the guidance of knowledgeable managers and concierges, turned-down bedcovers, and chocolate mints on pillows freshly sheathed in Egyptian cotton.
