We stayed at the Hilton in Pasadena during our booth attendance for iMATS LA 2012. It was by far, one of the best hotel experiences that I have had. Only beaten by The Hard Rock in Tampa during a Dave Matthews Concert. The room was awesome, the Bar was fab and the 2 ladies that ran the bar were both superb! Peter, the driver took exceptional care of all the guests and knew so much about the town - he gave us a fabulous history lessen every time he drove us to and fro the hotel.
As far back as I can remember I have taken the provided toiletries during my hotel stays. I found it to be an opportunity to try products that I normally would have not been able to test out, usually because the full sizes of the samples are out of my budget. Guess it is fair to say that I have always been fascinated with samples!
