Ive got my credit card bill on line one for you.
In my defense, I will admit that Im a hotel snob and stay in hotels above my social class. I rarely travel, but when I do I like to take a vacation from my life. Plus, I like the amenities and find the experience creates better memories. And I have crippling social anxiety, so I spend a lot more time in the room and lobby than most people do on vacation so it helps that the staff is typically nicer.

Remember, I used to work in a hotel so all the magic is gone. And I have a better handle on the tricks/social engineering that works in higher scale hotels.

Ah, I have a simple cold-brew apparatus (a Mason jar, a filter, and a lovely jar lid that's got a spout and handle), but that's for iced coffee only. For hot coffee, I love the lazy ease of my coffee maker.

I do have a collapsible electric kettle that I have taken to conferences where I wasn't sure they'd have coffee ready in the morning (since post-pandemic many hotels have taken coffee makers out of the rooms). Not ideal, but passable in a pinch.
I learned that the hard way last summer in Memphis.

You mean to tell me, I have to stumble around, get dressed, go to the lobby amidst all the creatures, stand in line.

Not on my list of things I want to do on vacation.

Kino. Criterion is too common.
I got 3 Criterions and 2 Kinos.
I was joking. Never goes well for me, that.
