|Can you see the horses and buggies?|
Our rooms were on the fifth floor on the inside. You could look over the railing down into the courtyard. It made me dizzy. It's higher than any tree I've ever climbed. And . . . I have to say I did get lost . . . twice. But what do you expect? There are 755 rooms in that place, and over 1,200 people can stay at one time. That is the population of the entire town of Fresno. We could pack up the whole town and move in for a weekend.

|The rates for the Palace and Grand Hotels. They combined the two hotels.|
Oh, wait! Hope wanted to know how much this all costs. I have to say that it's a shock, but some of the rooms are as cheap as $1.00/ night. I think our rooms were more expensive than that. Probably $4.00 or even $5.00 a night, because our rooms shared a bathroom and we ate there too. Very fancy. Good manners a must.
|Walking toward our hotel. Sort of takes up the whole view, doesn't it?|
