Where I stayed
The final reservations are being made. Last night I was able to book what looks to be a very nice hotel on Hotwire.com. It is the Radisson LAX. Here is it web site:
I got it for a little more than half its normal price off of Hotwire, plus I saved some money over the Best Western I had originally booked in Sherman Oaks, Ca. This is the 3rd hotel switch I have made in the LA area. It will also be the last since I had to pay Hotwire up front. They say the 3rd time is the charm. They also say 3 strikes and you're out. Eternal optimist that I am you can guess which way I am leaning.
From LA we head to San Diego. We have a reservation in at a Days Inn, but I am hoping to upgrade and save money at the samt time. I am checking Price Line and Hotwire daily to see if I can get lucky. Sarah is really looking forward to the San Diego Zoo. She wants to go to the Australia portion of the zoo.
Our next stop is Sedona, Az. A friend from work has a sister who is a concierge at a hotel out there. She mailed a bunch of stuff to us. Boy does that place look cool. I am really looking forward to that part of the trip. We will be staying at a place called the Kings Ransome.
From Sedona we head to the Grand Canyon for a few days. We are staying a half mile from the rim on the South side at the Yavapia Lodge. We have a bus tour scheduled for Sunday afternoon that should be alot of fun.
After a couple of days at the Grand Canyon it is off to Las Vegas for the last couple days of the vacation where we stay at New York, New York. I am not sure what we are going to do there, but it is Las Vegas, I am sure we can find something.
