My primary reasons for booking rooms at this hotel were (1) Location Location Location (in relation to St. Joseph Hospital) and (2) the discount offered for St. Joseph Hospital patrons. Those two reasons, my friends, would be the only two reasons you would choose to stay at this hotel!
Parking: This was our first red flag! There are about 20 parking spaces in a narrow circle drive in the front of the hotel. I parked (illegally) in the handicapped space, left my 86 and 84 year old passengers in the car, and ran inside to see if I missed the entrance to the underground parking. While there was no additional parking on the Holiday Inn property, there was additional parking in a parking garage adjacent to the hotel next door which could be used by Holiday Inn guests. I unloaded the luggage and passengers and made the trek around the block, parked on the second level - not an elevator in sight - and walked the block and a half back to the Holiday Inn. To say the parking was inconvenient doesn't even begin to describe my thoughts as I walked alone in an unfamiliar area to return to check into my room.
Front Desk Staff: The front desk staff, I believe her name was Betty, was excellent! She tried to solve my parking issue when I explained that I had two elderly mobility and hearing impaired passengers in tow but honestly I didn't want to take the chance of getting ticketed for using a handicapped parking space without a legitimate hang tag or license plate.
The Room: Loved the view from our 10th floor room! Had a little difficulty regulating the temperature of the room but finally able to lower the temp from 78 to 71 after several hours of running the fan on high.
Dinner: After convincing my travel companions that paying $11 for a sandwich in Phoenix was really quite reasonable, we sat down in the hotel dining room to order dinner. Unfortunately, the waiter was delivering room service so we had to wait for his return.

... In only seven short days I have opened up a world within myself...I can see myself changing, growing, opening up more, right before my very own eyes. I greet everyone with a smile and a hello (not that I didn't before, but even more so now - and I feel more comfortable and confident in doing so), and 99% of the time they do the same and we end up striking up a conversation. People want to make connections, you just need to take a step in their ...

Did things around the house, getting ready to leave for AZ . Then out for dinner, though I am still not too hungry! Dinner at Sabatino’s and home for the evening.

... Security again, so that is 3 times that we had to take our shoes off today… the terrorists are winning! Our layover is about 5 hours, so we found a nice Italian restaurant with waiter service in Terminal 1. It was good to be back and get a meal that we are more accustomed to. We then headed to our gate to wait for our plane and to work on the blog. I won’t send it until we are home in Phoenix, so there will be a short break in the action for now….. (Oh by ...
