Hi,

I will be on a cross-country trip starting in a few days, and two hotels on the way are PHX and LAX airport hotels. Does anyone know if I will be able to see anything from inside either hotels? With a converter, I can get up to 400mm; would I be able to get a good picture with it?

Thanks,

Jeremy

Jeremy,

I just moved to Phoenix about a month ago, so I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think there are any hotels that offer good views of Sky Harbor. It isn't so much distance from the airport as it is that most are only a few floors tall. If you have some time and can head to the airport, the Terminal 3, Terminal 4 and East Economy garages all provide good aircraft views for photography. Hope this helps.

Tim

LAX is no good either. I also second what Tim said...no options for PHX unfortunately.

Maybe I'll get lucky and be stuck in traffic somewhere  Big thumbs up I know the San Diego Zoo is soooooo close to the aerospace museum, but I couldn't convince 47 people to stop there for me  Sad
