Recently the Rev. and Ankhjii decided to get a little away time. We heard rumours about the Belamere Suites in Perrysburg. Simply put an amazing time was had.
First off, one can totally leave the world. When one arrives, they are given a garage door opener at check-in. You simply park your car in the garage attached to your suite and never have to see the world again. The suite has no windows, so you never have to deal with the daylight. They tell you that the front desk will take care of everything. That was definately put to the test. We called many times for new towels, coffee, food, etc. And every time the things we needed were delivered right to our door.
The room itself was quite cool. Giant bed, decent size TV (which we didn’t really use), huge glass block 2 person shower (bigger than the Rev.’s entire bathroom), fireplace, giant Jacuzzi, and the coolest thing would be our own private pool in the room. And of course we had to decorate the place to fit us, so we brought along all of our party lights.
Just down the street from the Belamere is Levis Commons, with the Nagoya Restaurant at the very back. The only time we left the room was for dinner at Nagoya. The food there was plain killer. We started off with some sashimi, and the Reverend was finally able to satisfy a life goal. To have Kobe Beef, and yes, it is as good as they say it is.
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, and now we are back in the real world. But while it lasted, it was amazing.
oh… there WAS a window…. and we WERE watching
I bet you saw some REALLLY strange things!
Nuthin we aint used to seeing when we secretly watch through your bedroom window at your house.
That good eh????? sweeeeet!
So you inspired Atom.
We are getting married on Monday in Maumee when the folks are in town and he decided to book us a room there for our “wedding night”. Unfortunately we are both healing fresh tattoos so a pool isn’t the wisest thing for the current timing, but I am sure we are going to have a blast playing romantically wild but physically mild in the jacuzzi suites.
By the way… if you are not working that day (Mar 10) and feel like waking up early (11:00am) you are both welcome to attend out courthouse ceremony. We’d of course love to see you but it’s not a “big” deal if you don’t/can’t, as the main ceremony has already been had and this is just the “legal” one where my parents will be in town for and Atom’s parents will be attending.
Aww…congrats sooo much to you guys! I would have loved to do the officiating for ya! I do short notice, and I’m better than the courthouse (I just need a day to write and a locale…home, bed, bar, bathroom, under a semi, on a bus). lol. But I understand if ya just wanted to go that route of course (it is a bit easier, and comes with a locale)! I think I’m off, I’ll text Atom when I’m sure! You guys enjoy that room! It’s waaay too cool!
I know a little something about the Belamere. The most interesting thing I know is that, if you think you’d like to stay there on a week night, you can get a killer deal by calling around 8 or 9pm on the night you want to check in. The owner of the place calls this deal the “druggie delight,” since the most notable people who take advantage of it are drug dealers. You see, the hotel is primarily only booked on the weekends. During the week, there are many vacant rooms. The owner, John, being a savvy businessman, understands that an empty room is money lost. So, if you call up at a point in the evening when he KNOWS he won’t be filling up all the rooms, you can negotiate a sweet deal. I would recommend offering $65 or so. He’ll probably talk you up to around $80, but that’s a helluva lot less than whatever he normally charges. I even bet that you could negotiate a second (or third!) night at the same cost (though I haven’t tried).
Well thanks for the intel! lol
