... the hotels up onto their roofs to see the city-scape. The Hilton was the nicest hotel that we successfully navigated. When we took the glass elevators 14 stories up to the top floor, it was fun to see all the hanging art and sculpture they decorated the airspace around the elevator with. Later, we attempted Herod's Hotel, but after unsuccessfully trying to bluff our way past the front desk receptionist, we pretended we were at the wrong hotel and gave up in defeat.
