Staying here now...short biz trip at an office very near the airport.

Overall, my opinion of this hotel is "flavorless". It's a bland airport Doubletree that I will have completely forgotten...

A mugging (the way most people envision it) is a completely different animal from a pickpocket or a purse snatcher, but that's neither here nor there. I'd take normal precautions with my bags and/or...

In a Silvercar right now, $14/day at PHX. (Obviously, it's offseason here. :))

No, the answer is Row 18.

Seriously. Row 18. That's where they'd sit. Plus or minus two rows, maximum. Or closer to the front, maybe, if they want window+middle.

I'm 6'4" and I've never noticed a problem. I think the mods should delete all posts in this thread that aren't prefaced with how tall the poster is. :D

If I absolutely needed to go, I'd get a one-way rental car. That should be easy to do on LAS-LAX.
