Types of Writing

Since I will be teaching the many types of writing and asking my students to compose different types of papers, I thought I'd give one type a try here on my blog:

Persuasive Writing.

Hotel Review

This past weekend, my husband and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary by returning to the hotel where we spent our honeymoon:

Little America in Flagstaff, AZ

Little America is situated in the forests just outside of Flagstaff, AZ nestled among the beautiful pine trees.

Upon entering, we were greeted with the cozy lobby.

After checking in, we made our way to our lovely room overlooking the green lawns and pine trees.

Our room was large and comfortable with a big soft bed. There was a separate vanity space for us ladies to use for getting ready. The bathroom was also very big and had a powerful shower head. I thoroughly enjoyed a hot shower at bed time! The towels were high thread count and extremely soft. There was ample drawer space in the room and bathroom for toiletries. 

View from our room

We really enjoyed our morning walks along the inviting forest trails. One trail was 1 mile and the other was a 2 mile jaunt. The 70 degree temps made for a lovely respite from the extreme heat of Phoenix. Afternoon rains were a treat as well since we came from the desert. 

The hotel boasts a classy restaurant that proved to be a little bit too expensive for us ($30.00 for salmon!) but that's not a problem because the hotel is close by to a plethora of restaurants to choose from including some that have been featured on the Food Network cable show "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" which I will also review here on my blog soon.

All-in-all we had a wonderfully romantic time at Little America. The staff was helpful and professional. Our room was sparkling clean. It's a perfect hotel for a romantic get-a-way or time with the family. The hotel has a heated pool and playground for kids and we saw many families there enjoying the amenities. 

During the summer months, there is a lot to do in Flagstaff:
 Hiking, zoos, Cardinals training camp, sky lift for site seeing, historical museums to tour, etc.

The only negative was that I found 3 bugs in our room including a black spider underneath my pillow. Luckily, it was dead and didn't appear to be a poisonous spider! Other than that, everything was fine. Room service was kind enough to send us two champagne flutes to toast our anniversary. 

Little America is as beautiful as I remembered from way back when. I hope we can visit in the wintertime some day to see the grounds covered in snow and the trees lit up like Christmas.

I give the experience 4 out of 5 stars and recommend this hotel for your next visit up north!

Your turn: Have you ever written a review?  What hotel is your most favorite or least favorite? Would you be willing to write them a review?
