A Geek Hotel

Yeah, "Geek", not "Greek". I must be staying in the geekiest hotel on the planet.

I have no desire to take a Geek Cruise, and I scored unsurprisingly low on the Geek Test*, but I did willingly choose to stay at the Hotel@MIT. I was attracted to the hotel because of its location and promise of good internet connectivity.

I was expecting the modern decor of the lobby, and not entirely surprised by an exhibit of historical MIT robots in the lobby. I failed to expect the bedspreads...

Now don't get me wrong. This is a really nice hotel, close to the red line, and for those needing a deeper geek fix, the MIT Museum.

* As a team-building exercise (okay, it was really just a diversion from work), my part of the LabVIEW group took the geek test. The highest score was by a woman who got points for having designed a nuclear device in college.
