Last night Durango's Hampton Inn kindly upgraded us to a large suite, which probably houses up to six skiers when snow conditions are good. All we did was sleep, toss, and turn. We enjoyed the best Hampton Inn breakfast we've ever seen - of course, everything so far has looked good to us post-India and we'll probably break into tears the first time we eat ice cream.
After a pleasant reunion lunch with Tom and Ellyn - she's been back at work two days and looks as fresh as a daisy - we checked in at the Doubletree, where we're enjoying a corner room on the top floor with a lovely view of the Animas River from our balcony.
Hilton continues to treat us well as a Hilton Diamond couple, and motivates us to log three more stays during this trip to the Four Corners, giving us a head start on requalifying for 2013.
