Summer 2017 has been absolutely amazing already for my business! I recently celebrated my best friend’s birthday in Mexico and since my return, I’ve hit the pavement speaking at women’s events. Of course, I love traveling and empowering women as I go. This past weekend, I was asked to speak at an event in Augusta, Georgia.
The event was held the day before Father’s Day, so I knew I’d have to make a weekend of it to visit with my Father that Sunday. I stayed at the Baymont Inn & Suites on Riverwatch Parkway for the weekend and it truly was a great choice. I am very familiar with this area, yet I was unaware of this hotel tucked away from the bustle of Washington Road. It’s close to everything while still giving you the privacy and quiet you need to truly relax. It only took me 9 minutes to get to my event in the downtown area of Broad Street.
At check-in, the staff was super kind and helpful. Upon entering, I noticed the cleanliness of the establishment. It smelled super fresh! That is always a thumbs up for me, lol. I noticed a lot of families checking in with kids anxious to jump in the pool. When I got to my room, I was again pleasantly surprised at the space of my room. I was given a king suite for the weekend and it was HUGE! It included an almost full kitchen, two bathrooms, living room with sleeper sofa, and working area. There was also tons of comfortable seating in the suite. Of course my mind was rolling with ideas of “Girls Night” events that would be perfect for that space!
What I enjoyed most during my stay was the bed! Yes! The bed was everything. You have no idea how bad your own bed is until you lie down in a bed like this. Friday evening, I slept so soundly and comfortably that I did not want to leave the bed Saturday morning for breakfast. I was able to pull myself out just before the end of breakfast. Good thing too, because the waffles were delicious. When I returned to my room I climbed back in bed and enjoyed cartoons and Martin until a couple hours before my event. I really felt rejuvenated because my sleep was excellent! I wonder why hotel beds are so awesome?
If you’re ever in the Augusta area for business or pleasure, I recommend trying the Baymont Inn & Suites on Riverwatch. As I said, it is just steps away from busy traffic of Washington road, but you can get anywhere you need to in just minutes! That is big when you want to relax or focus. I was able to prepare for my speech in peace while getting the necessary relaxation to deliver a powerful and empowering talk to the women at the tea. It’s a hidden gem in Augusta, and I plan on visiting there again. Make sure you tell them I Hear That Girl! sent you!
