Hotel gives you a coupon for one free drink at the lobby bar upon checkin. Beer, punch, soft drinks are the options-a limited list, but a good starter. The bar offers a wide variety of beverages and a pretty good menu of food. Be on the lookout for “CK”, the hotel general manager that enjoys being in the bar visiting with hotel guests. He really enjoys visiting with FedEx pilots and has been known to buy numerous drinks (including top shelf scotch) until you’re ready to call it a night. Just fair warning when you encounter CK in the bar you’ll be in for a treat to lots of corny jokes and adult beverages. CK no longer works at the Howard Hotel; the GM has retired.
