Melbourne Finally

We’re in our room at the Melbourne Airport Holiday Inn, a stiff half-mile walk from Terminal 1.

The property may have been updated since the 1970s, but we see no evidence.

The front desk employees were exceptionally friendly and repeatedly thanked me for my loyalty as IHG credit-card Platinum. Our “upgrade” to the top floor offers a view of airport parking garages.

After a thoroughly forgettable meal in the hotel’s restaurant, we were ready to sleep.

We’re up early this morning after a good sleep in a comfortable bed. Brian picked up Cappuccinos downstairs and chatted with a lovely young barista who’s off to play college basketball in New Hampshire. 

The employees are indeed friendly and the room is cool and comfortable. That’s what counts.
