My manager wants me to go to Paris for the Oracle 11g Roadshow (Public launch is on July 11th in NYC). No problem, I can fit it in my agenda.
Cheapest hotel rate for Oracle approved hotels: 495 Euro… waiting for manager’s approval 😉
Update: To my extreme surprise, this has been approved. Wednesday and Thursday, you’ll find me at the Marriott Paris Rive Gauche Hotel & Conference Centre. Staying in the hotel where the training/road-show is happening would have been 650 Euro, so basically I save my company around 840 Euro by only going for 2 nights and choosing the cheap hotel. You see: it’s all a matter of perspective 😉
Update 2: damage control. Second night a lot cheaper. Dividing the price of 2 as if it were 3 nights (which I would have needed) will be just over 200 (acceptable, not?)
