I live 3 miles from the Reagan Airport Radisson. To score my 50,000 points in Radisson's current promo, I booked an $80 rate for last nightseveral weeks ago. Late Friday night, I and a couple of million Washingtonians lost power, and we've had several 100 degree days. Well, I do not ordinarily use my MR rooms, as I have a dog. But this was celarly different. Kennels were all booked up, so I moved the dog's crate to the basement, and enjoyed the hotel's pool, electricity, and air conditioning. I did make visits home every 6 hours or so to walk the dog and feed her. My power is back up, and all is returning to normal.
