What is This at The Nines Hotel in Portland?
We like to keep it fun but informative here at HotelChatter so our newest series, What is This? is devoted to odd-looking items in hotel rooms that upon first glance look as if they serve only a decorative purpose. But everything happens for a reason, right? And we're here to tell you what these things really do.
When we visited The Nines Hotel in Portland over the summer, it was nearly love at first sight in the guestrooms which feature jewel-toned furniture, sumptuous beds and original artwork on the walls.
But when we sauntered over to the desk, we were struck by the silver, beaded handles on the desk. What a darling touch! But it turns out the drawers do much more than look pretty.
That's because when you pull the drawer on the left side of the desk, it actually drops down to reveal a plug panel with an outlet (facing in two different directions), internet hookups, USB ports and a firewire. Oh and the WiFi is free!
Not only does the girl look good but she's smart too!
