Back Home Again

I am back home again, oh that is right I didn't tell you all I was gone.  I left last Wednesday, flew to Chicago and checked into a nice hotel, had dinner with a friend, spoke at a conference on Thursday afternoon, ran to the airport only to have my flight delayed over an hour, flew to San Francisco, checked into one of the top hotels in the country, attended a day long meeting on Friday, had a wonderful dinner with Jay's cousin, and spent all day on Saturday flying back to the east coast.  about 6,000 miles of travel in four days.  I am exhausted and fighting a head cold and cough.

The meeting in San Francisco was hosted by a medical society.  Doctors have better taste in hotels than legal aid attorneys.  They took care of the travel arrangements (and paid the bill.)  I stayed at the Fairmont Hotel on Knob Hill in San Francisco.  It is on most of the top-10 lists of the finest hotels in the country.  The Greek Revival building opened in 1907, a year after the fires from the earthquake of 1906 destroyed most of the original building.  It has been wonderfully maintained, and renovated retaining the incredible detail of the 1907 building. It deserves it's reputation as one of the best of the best.


  1. what a fabulous hotel! older properties like that are few and far between. reminds me of an estate home.

  2. I love The Fairmont. Truly a fabulous Grand Dame.

  3. home - after all there is no place like it.
