Where I stayed
We had booked a room at the airport Holiday Inn as we anticipated needing sleep after the flight and didn't want any hassle. This was when the hassle started! What they failed to mention on the website when booking was that this particular Holiday Inn was mid renovations and the building noise was appalling and it sounded as though they were using a hammer drill in the next room, which indeed they may have been. Despite this we booked in and D managed to sleep through the noise and Yvonne and Steven found themselves not terribly tired so spent the afternoon continuing with sticker books!
We finally headed for a Taco Bell (Mexican food - yum!) and had some tea and settled down for a good night's sleep as the building work was only between 7am and 7pm.
We were amused as the Holiday Inn was, by chance, very close to Inglewood which D had been going on about since Australia, and we were disappointed that, despite flying in the day after Oscars' Night, there were no celebs to be spotted!
