OK, thought about a short break for me and Mrs Phil in Liverpool at the end of the month (and thanks to those who suggested Hotels) but having second thoughts, mainly coz wandering around sightseeing in the rain is dull and boring... So suggestions please for a location and hotel for a break at the end of October, leaving home on a Wednesday morning, returning home no later than afternoon Monday due to work commitments. Could be UK or overseas (but not north Africa - Mrs Phil has been working in Cairo and is in no hurry to return to that or similar places), either warm or cold but definitely with a low chance of rain that would spoil sightseeing. Could be either a city location or a well-appointed "retreat" type hotel with lots of facilities (in which case potential for rain not so important!). Have been toying with the idea of Vegas, but think the flight time may break it as an option. Would prefer places with decent restaurants & bars nearby. Ideas?
