Just 24 hours earlier, they spent the night in what Oprah called a "grungy, moldy, stinky motel," so when she and Gayle pulled into Wichita's Hyatt Regency Hotel, the weary travelers could barely contain their excitement.
"I wanted to hug the bellman, but when I went to hug him, he looked afraid," Gayle says.
Oprah even broke out into the "happy hotel dance" in the lobby! "After our experience in the motel the night before, that Hyatt was a welcome oasis," Oprah says. "What a difference a day makes!"
The ladies left their pillows and blankets in the car and bedded down for the night in beautiful suites. Oprah says she doesn't mind if hotel rooms aren't as fancy as the ones at the Hyatt...she just wants a room that's fresh and clean.
