“I was brought into my room, which felt so luxurious, just like a hotel room with lighting on dimmer switches, a beautiful bathroom with walk-in shower and a gorgeous view out the window with handmade mahogany lattice,” Hammer said,. “I am self-employed and rarely have the chance to relax and sleep, and this room created the perfect cocoon. ... I slept all day,”
