State of the art Telephony in the roomBack to the ferry and on to Patra. According to Lonely Planet, Patra/s (depends where you look), there's nothing much there. JV booked the Moxy in Patra which is part of the Marriott chain, opposite the marina, mainly as a stop over (we are heading to Olympia and the driving time was just a tad too long).
Fabulous position, newly opened hotel (less than a month), although I think it has the appearance of being a party hotel. Just the same it is nicely appointed. One of the challenges since Marriott bought Sheraton is the huge number of brands and working out what you're entitlements are. As far as we can work out, Moxy include a self serve breakfast for everyone and Platinum Elites are entitled to a €10 per person check-in amenity (not sure about other status levels.)
Rather than offer €10 per person, they gave us two "disks" which entitled us to two free cocktails. Worked for us.
The first couple of photos are the Rion-Antirion Bridge. This is one of the longest multi-span cable-stayed bridges and the longest of the fully suspended type. It crosses the Gulf of Corinth. The toll over the bridge is €13.50.
