Where's the stairs?

Erin and I treated ourselves to a wonderful weekend away (we'll blog about it later). We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard hotel in Old Town, San Diego. If I didn't have a wife that got sick in elevators and other moving objects, I would have never noticed a trend in modern day construction: missing staircases. The only option you're given now is to take the elevator. Forget about better health or alternative options if the elevator is full or out of order. There were two fire escapes on either end of the building, neither of which led to the lobby of the hotel. The staircase on the south side sent you to the alleyway, and on the north side you ended up in the kitchen or the outdoor employee smoking area. However, I can't complain too much about our stay for only $45 per night at a regularly $200 room; I was quite pleased with our accomodations being within walking distance of my favorite part of San Diego.
