On previous visits to the fair we have stayed in the partner hotel where most of the exhibitors tend to be staying. This gives you the opportunity to have impromptu chats in the communal areas of the hotel.
Unfortunately we missed out this year because we booked later than normal and weren’t staying at the Best Western. Instead we were booked in to a hotel that the event hadn’t used before.
So it was with trepidation we arrived outside the doors of the Dormero Hotel in the heart of Hanover. The drive had been a swift one as the traffic wasn’t too bad but even so it was still late afternoon when we arrived.
After checking in we made our way to the lift and up to our floor. The hallways were fairly understated with runway lights accommodated in the skirting boards.
I took a deep breath as Alex slipped the room key in the door and the lock slid open. He pushed open the door and we were pleasantly surprised by the clean finished, contemporary style of the room.
There was a very nice slate tiled bathroom to the left of the door which again was styled in a contemporary way. No bath but I never have one any way, preferring showers.
On the wall facing the bead were two large flat screens, the one on the left for surfing the internet and the other television.
On the desk area below was a card welcoming us to the Domero saying that the mini bar (don’t get excited it had one beer and 3 soft drinks.) Film channel, Internet & gym were all free! That’s a first and a very welcome one at that.
Next came the fun part. The lighting.
In the panels behind the bed and flat screens were mounted colour changing lights. Not only could you select a mood colour but you could also adjust its intensity.
Well I’ll tell you this feature kept me amused for hours during our stay. I think I tried every colour palette and combo. A really great toy.
The only down side, if you could call it that, was that the bed was a couple of singles pushed together. But having tested them thoroughly during the trip I can say they are both comfortable and stable you just have to keep out of the gap. Lol
By the time we had unpacked it was too late to attend the first day of the show. Which we suspected would happen due to our flight being in the afternoon. Next year we will probably fly over the day before.
So we decided to settle in for the night and go downstairs to eat dinner. The restraint was very nice as was the food. I opted for a homemade burger with all the trimmings and some NY cheesecake.
Suitably stuffed we made our way back to the room ready for an early start and you can guess what happened then. 😉
