Once I found out I was heading to Louisville, I started working on the arrangements. As a delegate, there was an expense allotment and I planned on making it count. Checking the convention hotel I about fell over when I found out a room was $169! For a room that didn't even have a microwave and mini fridge.
No... no... no.
I decided to check out Airbnb. I'd never used the company before so it was a bit of an adventure getting it all set up. Once done, I started pulling up places near the convention center. I was amazed to find that we could rent an entire apartment for half of the cost of the hotel room.
I selected "Hawk's Eyrie". The entire upstairs is the Airbnb apartment. It was about 10 minutes from the convention center and you didn't have to get on a freeway.
It is a very cozy home.
Walking into the door of our apartment, we were delighted.
The living room.
Our spacious kitchen.
And our huge bedroom with two beds.
A second bedroom under the eaves with a twin bed.
And the bathroom.
All details were seen to: snacks, juice in the fridge, hundreds (seriously) of DVDs to pick thru, games, and so on.
Our hosts were very nice people. We only met with them for a little bit but it was a nice visit.
Any future trips to Louisville will see us back at the Hawk's Eyrie!
