We checked into Grand Hotel today and we were previously warned out usual suite wouldn’t be ready until Saturday so they would be putting us up elsewhere for the first night. When we checked in I guessed from the room number that it was one of the First Lady Suites. My fear was that I would wind up in the suite named after the mother of the Anti-Christ. It turns our that it is next door, as we wound up in the Nancy Reagan suite for the night.
First Lady suites are decorated in each’s favorite color. The Nancy Reagan Suite has red wallpaper and red carpet. It also comes complete with an autographed copy of her book My Turn and photos of the Reagans all over. She looks like a vampire in the photo across from the toilet. There is also a blue glow emanating from the Barbara Bush Suite next door. I might have a tough time sleeping tonight, although that view of the Mackinac Bridge and the West Bluff of Mackinac Island makes it a little easier to handle the room.
Storms are predicted for tomorrow. Typically when that happens they serve complimentary Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s in the parlor. One day of rain per trip isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
