|Days Inn Forbidden City – Beijing, China|
Being the caring and loving lady I am, I volunteered to book a hotel for my bf’s first night in China (why he is there and I am not calls for a whole different blog). I looked up some options and was of course overwhelmed by Chinese characters and foreign currencies. Add to that the horror stories some people share on the web regarding their visits to other countries and you can imagine how challenging I felt this quest was. Well, that was until I saw the Forbidden City Days Inn Hotel!! (http://www.daysinnforbiddencity.com) We have all seen the Days Inn hotels on the side of the road; they look like motels with high aspirations. I, of course, booked the first room I could get since it was a familiar name and their staff speaks English according to their advertisement.
