Hello. My friend Anthony had his 39th birthday party Saturday nite.
He lives out in Newark, California.
He said I could crash at his place, but I'm nearly 40, and the dude has a family, so I was like nah but thank you.
So I got a hotel room via Expedia.
I stayed at the Aloft Silicon Valley in Newark, California. They're owned by Marriot.
I paid about $120.
Coolest part was they have a robot butler that will you bring food to your room. I didn't order anything but I thought that was fun.
The telly (as us urban people refer to a hotel) is right next to a wetland/ marsh area, so it's quite pretty to look at. It's an entire, ecosystem, man!
They also have a stock market ticker in the lobby. Huh?
Oh and they have 3 parking spaces dedicated to electric vehicles, and all 3 were empty. Come onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
Worst thing was they charge $15 for a continental breakfast. At many hotels this is complimentary to guests staying there! Eh. Whatever.
Anyways the telly is nice and my stay was fine.
