I travel a lot! And sometimes I happen to run into celebrities along the way. It is always quite fun to see someone or sit next to someone famous on the plane. As reported by The New York Times, Donald Trump stayed at a some what surprising choice of hotels in Iowa last week. As it turns out, I too was in Iowa and ran into him in the lobby of my hotel.
My Run-In With Trump, A Trip Report
Mr. Trump, who has rarely spent the night in one of the early states during the campaign, stayed at the relatively new hotel in western Iowa on Friday night, the first of a two-night stay in Iowa as he makes a heavy push for votes in the Feb. 1 caucuses.
“Good mattress, staff was great, good mattress, good everything,” Mr. Trump said Saturday.
“It’s different and it’s certainly not Mar-a-Lago,” Mr. Trump said. But “it’s very nice.”
He added: “I actually enjoyed it. It was good, it was clean.”
The Holiday Inn Express overlooks the fifth hole of the Ridge Golf Course, the hotel says on its website, and it offers a 36-hole package deal that includes two rounds on the course for $209.99 a night.
My run-in with The Donald, was more of a ‘walk past’ then a run-in. I was sitting in the lobby of my hotel enjoying a beverage and Trump walks through creating quite a stir from the fans in the lobby. I snapped a quick picture to show Mrs. Weekly Flyer, but as I was reading this article from The New York Times about how Trump gave his review on his stay, “Good mattress, staff was great, good mattress, good everything,” I thought I would show you guys too! People were excited to see him and he waved and smiled, very presidential-like. It was fun!
