Most of these pictures are totally self explanatory.

The past three hotels I have been in are still using keys rather than keycards. The one I am currently in has a pass number to get in the front door after midnight. The previous one had someone at the desk 24/7.

Angela asked about my mesh packing bags and how those were working out for me. I really like them. I have beach stuff in one that I won't use for another two weeks so no sense shuffling through that every time I look for something. I have socks and underwear in another one. Tank tops I use for layering and other small tops I can't use yet are in yet another one. I did not put my pants in one this time. They are easy enough to deal with. Some larger shirts are just folded on top of the pants. Other are rolled up and in other mesh bag. I would definitely use them again. You do have to pre-think what you will use when and pack accordingly for them to work. As of right now most of my stuff is jammed in the pocket of my duffle as dirty clothes. I sure hope the Paris hotel has washer/dryer or laundry service. At this point I would definitely pay for service to get the laundry done so I don't have to fool with that in Paris.
