  Pinnacle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A pinnacle (from Latin pinnaculum, a little feather, pinna) is an architectural ornament originally forming the cap or crown of a buttress or small turret, but afterwards used on parapets at the corners of towers and in many other situations.
Some have stated that there were no pinnacles in the Romanesque style, but conical caps to circular buttresses, with finial terminations, are not uncommon in France at very early periods.
At Roullet there are pinnacles in a similar position, each composed of four small shafts, with caps and bases surmounted with small pyramidal spires.

There are other hotels near Pinnacle's Offices: Courtyard Inn (5 min walk), Ramada (10 min walk), Best Western (15 min walk), Days Inn and Comfort Inn (both about 20 min walk), but I am not sure about their levels of service, pricing and if they offer a shuttle van.
I have done some research into the company and talked with other pilots with Pinnacle and have concluded that this is a great company to have a career with.
The airline is in a special position...they don't pay for training...but they probably will as soon as the new contract is in place.
