DoubleTree seemed like just another hotel chain to me, until I stayed there—and was handed a warm cookie with my room card. Ah, that's right, this is the cookie hotel! The front desk lady pulled out the paper bag from a warming drawer next to her computer. (This has to be the best purpose for a drawer.) And somewhere around the world that day, about 30,000 chocolate-chip-walnut cookies would be pulled out of a DoubleTree warming drawer.
