After suffering through a couple of restless nights at Ali Al Salem LSA, I checked into the Marriott Courtyard near downtown Kuwait City. It's a world of difference. Only thing it lacks, however, is alcohol. I'm going to have to get used to that. This has to be the nicest Courtyard in the Marriott inventory. It looks like regular Marriott and has all the amenities that regular Marriott hotels have. It's too bad I have to check out today (I could only reserve two days) and head to the Hilton. One day in the Hilton and then it's back to Ali Al Salem to spend another restless night before heading north.
My company has hundreds of employees here in Kuwait and most all of them are enjoying their stay. The Kuwaiti people are friendly and hospitable. They're also thankful for what the US had done for them.
