We started our trip Fri nite. I wasn’t sure until the last minute we were going on Fri so I went on hotels.com on thurs nite. I was looking for the Holiday Inn Express on Walnut Dr. It’s the only hotel I stay at in DL other than on property because they have the best rooms and are under $100. I didn’t find my room on hotels.com but I did find it interesting that all three DL hotels were on there.
We left from the Modesto area and arrived around midnite. Got our room at the HIE and crashed. We got up around 8, got ready and headed for the Grand Californian.
I went this weekend for two reasons. My two older brothers were going and we wanted to buy an interest in the GCV’s. They had arrived a day earlier and already had rooms in the GC.
We got there at 10 and it was pouring down raining. The check in area was full of cars and we couldn’t get under cover. We waited five minutes or so and no cars moved. We didn’t have much luggage so we decided to brave the rain and just got out. It was a good move because there wasn’t anyone in the check in line. Not sure about all the cars but check in was a breeze. We haven’t stayed there in a while so I’d almost forgotten how nice it was. Here are some pictures we took in the lobby:
