THE SPIRIT OF EL PASO
Let our Experience Specialist make your stay unforgettable.-Holiday Inn Airport, El Paso
She was just sitting there with her laptop
computer. “You from out of town?” I said.
“I’m from right here,” she smiled. “I need to shop
for groceries.” To help, she turned her head
and searched on her computer, and found two
food stores. “Can I help you with anything
else?” I found out that she was staff and knew
how to “make your stay unforgettable.”
The Western ambiance, the fine frescos,
the free breakfast, the table tops of glass,
the concierge executive repast,
the Mariachi band, the Salsa Class,
the fast response to all exigencies;
were all unforgettable memories.
