HotelChatter contributing editor Tim Leffel is braving the erratic weather of Iceland and reporting on the local hotel scene this week. Most hotels are listed in euros or kroners, but prices here have been converted into dollars, which are actually worth something there right now.

Hotel 101 in Reykjavik, Iceland has a reputation of being reminiscent of a velvet rope Studio 54 in the early 1980s. Staffers are condescending, fashion obsessed, aloof, and just plain rude. Even though nightly rates are the highest in the country, the service at this hotel is still quite frosty.

A Derby Deal But Beware Flying Office Supplies

Have you been struck with a sudden desire to put on a super-sized pastel hat and watch the Kentucy Derby Horse races this weekend?

Even though the races are just a few days away, the Best Western Ashton Inn Suites is offering a three-night stay for $900 that includes a two-room suite with continental breakfast, shuttle service to Churchill Downs (just two miles away), complimentary bottle of wine and welcome basket with collectible glasses, program guides and best of all, taxes.

Just be careful when you ask for a late check-out. One guest was told by the front desk to get out ASAP even though a late check-out was agreed to. Then she discovered a random charge of $20 on the room bill which inexplicably angered the clerk.

As we were asking her about the extra money on the bill, she was saying some words I wish not to repeat (alot of Fthis F that and B** and C*** and alot other foul words.) After I told her I wanted to speak to a Manager she got very rude and started throwing paperclips and paperweights at my friend.

We suggest keeping your hat handy at check-out so as to deflect incoming office supplies.
