I spent today going from hotel to hotel. Well, that's not exactly how it happened as there were lots of restaurants, visiting friends and visiting 6th Avenue in between. There are the corporate hotels which always smell like bug spray to me. It's like nothing can survive in those environments except for humans (for a short period anyway). The other Guatemalan hotels may be old but it's worth the ambience of the architecture, the smells of tortillas cooking nearby, and the solidarity of people who stay there. The patio and garden helped make the final decision when choosing the best hotel for a group of photographers. Also, there is a restaurant at the hotel making snack time easier.
