Discomfort Inn

AmeriSuites, we're sure you're a fine hotel. Though bestselling humorist and National Public Radio darling David Sedaris name-checked you as a less-preferred accommodation, it was, no doubt, only because a 28-city/28-day book tour ranks second only to a Valley DUI sentence as substantial, grueling hotel time.

As Sedaris told The Daily Show, "All the good [ouch!] hotels went non-smoking," so, with typical Sedarisian logic, he moved to Japan for three months to ditch the coffin nails. (Hence the title of his latest collection of essays, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, from a safety pamphlet in his Hiroshima lodgings.)
