It Never Hurts To Ask

We are at a hotel in St. Adele, Quebec,  north of Montreal in the hills.  It’s an older ski lodge.   Quite nice.   Jan and I found our room on the older end of the hotel, no view.. and a  little small.   I asked the front desk if we could move as we are here for 3 nights, and she said “We have a large group,  so we don’t really have any other rooms suitable for you”.   Later that day I bumped into the General Manager of the hotel.  We had a great chat.  He was new to the place.  We swapped a few ideas, we talked a bit about Rotary.  He ended with “If there is anything I can do to  make your stay more enjoyable, please ask”.  I left and sat down with Jan and thought “Surely he meant it”.  Later I saw him and said “I know you are working to ensure your guests are comfortable as possible right?”   He replied, “Yes of course”.   “Could you find me a different room?”   He said “I will do my best.  We have some beautiful rooms.”  A few hours later we got a call and moved to a room with an adjoining living room suite/kitchen, and a view of the lake with 2 decks.   It doesn’t hurt to ask.  It doesn’t hurt to take peoples offers up.

Another trail system that used to be a railroad track.  These are the best!We are in Quebec for a bit of business, some fun and tomorrow we see Catherine in Montreal.   Today turned very sunny and beautiful .  As always we looked for hiking and found some great trails reclaimed from old railroad tracks.

    HI Kevin,
    I read part of this blog with interest. My wife and I are in Victoria for all of October.
    We would like to know the pricing and availability on your penthouse at Landmark for the period of march 15th to April 30 th 2011.
    I am a past president of the Quebec Rotary Club, 1972-1973. You will agree that this would be the best reference I could give you … lol. Thanks for looking into this at your earliest convenience.
