Just to keep everyone updated - I've made reservations at a Baymont Inn. I opted for this hotel based on it's downtown location. It's about 20 minutes from the zoo, but closer to things like Beale Street and Mud Island.
We are booked for 2 "Ovation King" rooms, which has a King sized bed, and a pull-out sofa bed. I wasn't able to get 2 double rooms (with 2 double beds), because they were booked already. We've chosen to travel in prime vacation season.
Unfortunately, it doesn't have internet access, which is lame - because my hotel does - and it's in stinky Mississippi. But, they do have complimentary breakfast, which isn't that bad.
I haven't gotten rates yet because my manager has to talk to the manager there. I should be able to get at least 1 room on an employee discount.
He's going to call tomorrow, and I'll let you know as soon as I know.
Can someone help me with this freaking mood theme? I have it hosted, I just can't seem to get it up.
