Room ok but not large but found booking in extremely frustrating as I had to talk to someone behind a plastic guard and could not see him very well let alone he understand me or me understand him.

It seems very wrong to me to be guided through Beverly Hills where you view the mansions of the rich and famous, then return to the streets of the poor and ignored. I find it very ...
... the swimming pool. 33 deg C here, stifling heat, quite humid. The staff were helpful and very accommodating.
Very quiet night, probably best sleep so far. We headed back to JFK driving through NY City, thank goodness in a taxi, cost $89US and took 2 hours from Jersey City because we drove through Manhattan and traffic was diabolical!
Our hotel was a basic airport hotel, good beds and quiet, the start of waiting begins. Had to be at airport ...
... half one, we decided to instead spend the afternoon round the pool at my apartment which was lovely since it was really the first time we'd chilled since being here. In the evening we went to a restaurant called "Wokano" - a sushi and Asian bar. The food was delicious and the staff were extremely friendly. I look forward to taking anyone who comes to visit J
