Dallas – Adam’s Mark Hotel

September 21, 2007 • 9 comments

Nine years huh? Try 40.

Webmaster Jam Session 2007 was held at the Adams Mark Hotel this year and next year they should just do it in Houston.

Adams Mark Hotel, featured the lovely Gracia and her incredible lack of southern hospitality.

Largest hotel in Dallas, more like Texas and it doesn’t have free WiFi…. Let alone WiFi that you’d have to pay for?

Who puts a cat-5 cable in a modern hotel room and puts a paperweight around it with an extension that doesn’t dial anywhere on a 10 year old phone

We call the hotel front desk five times only to find out they need a credit card on file in order for “incidentals” and of course this couldn’t be the same credit card we had on file when we checked in, or so we were told by the 3rd person who transferred us.

After much deliberation we’re finally able to connect to the whopping fast 300k/s connection.

As far as the rest of the room is concerned, the bathrooms are powered with high tech futuristic super toilets that if you’re not careful will flush your everything down along with your soul and any loose change you’ve got.

The sink in the bathroom seems to drain the water and make these weird demands for more as if its thirst remains to be quenched.

Oh how can I forget…. The sink and the bathtub with the beautiful clear brown water pouring…. I guess the whole idea is, “if its brown drink it down, if its black send it back.”

Now lets move on to the fact that Dallas sleeps, fast. Seems to us that everything in and around the hotel decided to close at about 7ish on a Friday night. Now that’s a business plan. So we drive out of downtown in to the most ghetto of places to get food and some dude offered us bootleg DVDs…. Guess he didn’t catch the geek vibe. …. and this is only day one.

    You had black water too? Yeah… it kinda freaked me out when I was washing my hands earlier. (I’m on the 23rd floor.) The lack of free internet access definitely sucks.

    Ewwww. That’s definitely nasty. Hope they have some filtered or bottled water for y’all to drink.
