...when it comes to forgetting what the room looks like that I booked.

We are going on a getaway next weekend and I reserved the room in June. I had a vague recollection of what the room looked like and where it was located in the inn, but it wasn't until I printed out the confirmation e-mail and directions today that I said to myself, "ohhhhhhhh....yeah, that's really nice". haha!
My mind is becoming more and more of a sieve...

At least you remembered where you're staying. This has been the summer for calls. The latest one was mad at me because she didn't know where she was staying and all she knew was the room number.

I can't imagine how folks can forget where they're staying unless they've booked multiple places and canceled or the town has so many places to stay that they've shopped around alot before finally booking.
In my defense, the inn where we're staying does have 16 rooms.

.
I gave my caller a couple of names of other places after asking if she could possibly narrow it down in any way. The first one I gave to her (because I know they have numbers not names for their rooms) she said, 'NO! That's not it. I know it's your place. It's the only one that sounds like that.'
Turns out it was the place I told her.
