Back in the bathroom, I fell in love with the sinks as soon as I saw them. Yes, it’s always nice to see double sinks for couples, but these were super-wide and had plenty of counter space. We could really spread out — a rare and decadent form of luxury. There was a separate bath and showerbonus points for couples that like both tubs and showers — and tons of chrome in the faucet handles, towel racks and handle bars. The toiletries came from L’Occitane. The only thing I didnt like: The light switches were on the outside the bathroom and you could accidentally cut all power to the bathroom by flicking a switch as you first enter the room. When I saw that the bidet and toilet faced one another... I could not stop imagining spouses facing one another while seated on their respective thrones. My wife and I did not try this. Amenities This building, constructed in 1959, houses more than just 282 guest rooms.

An Idaho woman was able to defend herself by pulling her gun on a man who'd begun violently beating her during a robbery attempt on Monday. The woman was driving in Boise, Idaho, when the robbery suspect jumped in front of her car. When she slammed on her brakes to avoid hitting him, her car stalled. The man then came around to the driver's door, opened it, and demanded her keys and her purse. "I couldn't believe it, it was shock and fear," the unidentified woman told KBOI . The woman said the man then began beating her. "When I refused to give it to him he started hitting me in the head multiple times," she told the news station."He got my face once, and my forehead once, and when that didn't work he grabbed my hair and began pulling me out of my car and I finally said OK, OK, that's enough stop! I'll give you my purse." Once the attacker stopped hitting her, the woman took the opportunity to pull her purple Ruger LCP out and point it at him.

Looks like you can forget about the rules the FCC approved in October to bar Internet providers from monitoring the sites you visit, unless you give permission to do so. Recently named FCC Chairman Ajit Pai wants to stay the initiative before March 2, and try to match the terms more closely with similar privacy rules the FTC has for content providers. If he can't arrange for a vote by all of the three current commissioners, then the Wireline Competition Bureau will stay...

However, the officials confirmed that Priebus had indeed asked an FBI official about publicizing the agency’s view on the New York Times report. In the morning background briefing, an official laid out a timeline of the communication between Priebus and the FBI, but the account from the White House has changed over the past 24 hours. On the record, Spicer rebuked reporters saying, “What you guys have done is indefensible and inaccurate.” He also said it would have been “insane” for Priebus to not attempt to convince the FBI to denounce a story that FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe called BS. “What sane person would not want to set the record straight?” Spicer said.
