Flying into Arizona over the mountains was beautiful. Photo opportunity, yes? No. Camera left at JFK :(
If your staying in Phoenix, stay at the Holiday Inn Downtown. The service is excellent, facilities are great and sooo comfortable.
We went for a swim in the hotel pool because, after all it was 39 degrees. Ordered a pizza and Ace got a …

Ben & Jerry's is still a small unknown kiosk along the Canyon roads. it already had queues tho. but of course, the line was worth the wait then as it …
It was hard to believe that it was finally time to head back to Brett's homeland after 4.5 months of traveling through Latin America. We were sad to have finished our trip south but eager to get back for a rest and reset before heading off again. Aside from Fiona receiving a lengthy interrogation by the immigration official, the trip back to the USA was fairly uneventful. Who knew a 5 year holiday visa actually only entitles you to visit 6 months in a 12 ...
Sunday we spent time with Carolyn’s Aunt Nancy and Uncle Ron. Carolyn last visited ten years ago and they seem to have aged little. Must be the clean New Mexico air.
Carolyn took Ray and Cash on a tour of her old haunts from her high school days. As might be expected with the passing of more than 40 years, a lot has changed. What was once desert and dirt tracks is now strip malls and six lanes of traffic. The simpler life has been paved over.
... It was ace! We had a couple of local pints before dropping Mariah home then went back to have some drinks at his, where we watched yet another film, 21 Jump Street (really funny if you haven't seen it) and then went to sleep. The original plan was to leave the next morning for Austin, but we wanted to spend another completely chilled out day in Phoenix so we planned to take a night bus there instead. So that morning we went to Tracy's hair salon at her request, so she could ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
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.
