  1. Wow, I stayed at HI Express in Valparaiso Florida that had complementary cookies and ice cream EVERY night for everyone! Small water? Isn’t that what the drinking fountain is for? 🙂

  2. Reminds me a little of the Starwood Platinum amenity I received in London, a coupon for a free cocktail at the bar; but the fine print said “Limit £5” and every single cocktail at the bar was a lot more than £5. (But still, a coupon for a free small water is a lot worse.)

  3. Did they have little bottles of designer water?
    I’d take a complementary bottle of VOSS or something like it.
