The hotel was comfortable, but entirely without any architectural distinction.
Big and rambling with 50 bedrooms.
I arrived about 6pm, and had a rest and then went down to the bar to drink Long Island cocktails.
The dinner was held in a private room. The waiters kept leaving the door open so that Alec Nussbaum had to keep getting up to shut it. I was shocked at some of the indiscreet things that were said.
Restless night, so hot I kept waking up.
Apart from our party there were no other guests at the hotel.
The general manager saw me in the garden and told me how much he admired what we were doing (I could not remember whether he was a member or not).
