Residence Inn - Glendale, Arizona

What a fantastic hotel. This was my first stay in a Residence Inn. The one in Glendale is about 20-30 minutes from downtown Phoenix, but it's in a rapidly growing area with plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby.

I was very impressed with this facility. My room was spacious with a mini kitchen area that included a full-size refrigerator, dish washer, two burners, microwave, pots and pans and utensils along with a bar counter to serve as an eating area.

There was also a couch and a chair, giving plenty of space to relax and unwind. Free high-speed internet was also available.

My room featured a king-size bed and a whirlpool bath. The room also featured a programmable thermostat.

The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast with both hot and cold items. There was a good selection and it tasted very good. There were also appetizers available Monday-Thursday evenings.

Delta Airlines

More kudos to Delta Airlines. On a recent flight from Miami to Atlanta, there were TV screens at every seat. Every passenger had the opportunity to watch 24 channels of live TV, listen to a variety of music channels, play trivia games and more.

I was amazed that it wasn’t just an offering of a movie or two and some canned sitcoms. It was live TV, including several news channels, several sports channels, one major network and a variety of other channels such as the Cartoon Network, HGTV, TLC, History, etc.
