Beth: Fritz Hotel, front desk.
My name is Beth, how may we help you?
Tom: I'd like to make a reservation for two on the 27th, 28th, and 29th.
Beth: Separate beds or double bed?
Tom: Double bed, please.
It's our honeymoon.
Beth: We have a honeymoon suite available those nights.
Tom: Just a minute.
Michiko, can we afford a honeymoon suite?
Michiko: How much is it?
Tom: How much would the honeymoon suite be?
Beth: It's a premium twin suite
with a view of the beach from the balcony
and a double bath,
with free wifi and air conditioning,
and breakfast served to your room included,
for forty thousand yen a night.
Tom: 40,000 a night, that's, uhm, 120,000 yen.
Michiko: We can't afford that.
Do they have something at ten thousand a night?
Tom: That's way out of our league.
What's your cheapest room for two?
Beth: It's a really great room, lots of privacy,
lots of access to the beach and the city.
Tom: We can't afford it.
Beth: We can give you a deal,
half price for that weekend.
Tom: That's still sixty thousand yen for three nights.
Michiko: Oh. Well, if we scrimp a bit, ...
Beth: Well, our cheapest rooms are not really appropriate for newlyweds.
They are right on the beach, so they'll be rather noisy.
We only have twin beds, no double or queen-sized beds.
Air conditioning, wifi, and meals come extra.
Tom: How much?
Beth: Fifteen thousand a night.
Tom: Fifteen thousand a night,
that's forty-five thousand for the three nights.
Does it have a view of the beach?
Beth: Some do, some don't.
Mostly, surfers rent the rooms.
Tom: In the surfer section, Mich,
right on the beach.
Basic, no frills.
Michiko: Surf city! Sounds good.
How many more hotels should we check?
Tom: Thank you. Your name was Beth, right?
Beth: That's right.
Tom: My name's Tom.
I'd like to check a few more hotels.
Can we call back on this?
Beth: Oh, sure, Tom.
Tom: Thank you. Goodbye.
Beth Thank you, and hope to talk with you later. Goodbye.
[Some time later.]
Beth: Hello. Fritz Hotel.
Why put on the Ritz when you can go on the Fritz?
Tom: I take it you are bored?
Beth: No. I've actually been rather busy.
Tom: This is Tom again.
Beth: Oh, yes. You wanted our honeymoon suit, after all, right?
Tom: No, we we're talking about a surfer twin room.
Beth: Oh, that's right. Cheapskate.
Tom: That's okay. Is there a room still available?
Beth: Well, actually, no.
Since you called, we had a surfing tour book all those rooms.
Tom: Oh, dear.
Beth: But my manager says we can give you the same price
for the honeymoon suite, but without the meals.
Tom: She says the surfer rooms are all booked,
but she can give us the honeymoon suite without meals
for fifteen thousand a night.
Michiko: Oh, that's disappointing.
We'll have to drag our boards down the stairs.
Tom: Fifteen thousand?
Tom: What floor?
Beth: Do you want a lower floor?
Tom: The lower the better, I think.
Beth: Second floor, with an ordinary bath okay?
Tom: Second floor, ordinary bath. Is that okay, honey?
Tom: We'll take it.
Beth: Okay, I'll need your full name and credit information.
