Estero Travel Guide
Not all hotel mavens get to stay in splashy hotels for sexy parties and lounging around on modern furniture with mojitos in hand. (Though wouldn't that be great?) So this week, The New York Times has Sam Sifton's report on the Embassy Suites Fort Myers-Estero. It's the perfect place, Sam says, for when "You have to stay somewhere."
But what's on offer? Flat-screen TVs, WiFi throughout the property, a hotel happy hour and made-to-order omelets in the morning. The rooms are fine, if not inspiring
Each front door opens onto a living room replete with a couch, a coffee table, an easy chair and a library desk, itself with a comfortable office chair and a couple of hardbacks for visitors. The color scheme recalls Tommy Bahama clothes, bland fluorescence, "The Office" TV show.
Nothing says taking it easy in Florida like "bland fluorescence." Although, we can just picture Dwight hanging at the pool in his short-sleeve shirt.
