turned into an AMAZING stay when we discovered the awesome breakfast in the morning.
First we noticed the selection: bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, eggs, yogurt, cinnamon rolls, and more. But then I laid eyes on the most amazing product ever invented: The Pancake Printer. While (unfortunately) not actually named "Pancake Printer," this incredible machine spits out a hot, fresh, and delicious pancake in less than a minute with just the push of a button. They were super tasty, and how can you not enjoy the experience of making a pancake simply by pushing a button?? I made two for myself, and two for friends, and honestly would have been happy staying all day making pancakes for pretty much every person ever. My only complaint is that these machines apparently cost over $3,000, and my life will forever be incomplete without one. But on the plus side, I guess I can just stay at this hotel again! [Less]
