When the cab driver doesn't even want to take you to a hotel, it's a concern. Got into the room and it was clean and the bed comfortable. Went for dinner, came back to 8 cop cars in the car park and the lobby blocked off. While it's one of the cheaper places to stay, it's not convenient to public transport and is in a seedy area. If staying here, I would recommend cabbing it to Union station. Overall though, it wasn't too bad provided you keep the doors locked and stay alert to any possible dangers.

After a late night, we had a slow start. We separated to go to different museums. Andrew wanted to head back to the Air and Space Museum to see things that our tour on Sunday afternoon didn't cover. ...
... of the monuments... Too many for me to remember and I get confused with the names!
Then headed straight to the pub to have a few (too many) drinks with the new group. It ended up being a great night - especially for a Sunday. We soon learnt that a lot of people were happy buying rounds of shots for everyone. Some people would be waking up with a good hangover! I think we got back to the hotel at 1am.Everyone is going to miss the ...
... It contained original news broadcasts of all the major news stories in the past 100 years or so with archives and preserved original items from the stories. From 9/11 to the first female investigative journalist, the museum was a huge source of news history that was full to the brim with really interesting information. The building was huge with 3 floors of exhibits (including one on anchorman), a T.V studio and a 4D cinema. On the top floor, there was a observatory ...
