Good grief. The Courtyard By Marriott Solana Beach might as well put a big sign out front that says, "PRINCE HARRY SLEPT HERE."
The hotel is now seriously considering renaming room 202 the Royal Suite after Prince Harry spent the night there (with a girl) last weekend. The hotel's general manager told The Daily Mail :
We have seen a surge in people wanting to stay in the hotel, and in that room, because of the recent stay. We're fielding a lot of calls and enquiries.
'We are looking at properly creating a royal package - it's being discussed internally.
'But just promoting that's the room he stayed in could be enough. People can stay in the same property, the same room, the same bed as the prince.
A sales manager was also quoted as saying they could offer "monarchical goodies" to guests as well. Oh god, it's like the Royal Wedding all over again. Nooooooo.
That said, we did get a kick out of hearing that Prince Harry headed to the Courtyard by Marriott Bistro the next morning and ordered a latte. See, if the Bistro is good enough for royals, it's good enough for the rest of us!
