Arrival/Check-In: Having passed through Israel and dealing with one of our party who had to secure an “on-the-spot” Jordanian passport, we stopped at the historic Roman city of Jerash on the way to Petra with our guide from Isram Tours. The Isram staff members are spectacular, and I made huge points showing them pictures of Queen Noor and me at an event I hosted in New York many years ago. Queen Noor is much-loved by the Jordanians; she is largely responsible for the fine relations between the United States and Jordan.

Arrival/Check-In: Loews Regency Hotel is an iconic New York City hotel — credited with the development of the “power breakfast” concept — with an enviable Park Avenue location. I was eager to experience the property for myself on an overnight visit earlier this year. I was not disappointed. I arrived late afternoon and was pleased with my quick, efficient check-in, as I was heading out for an evening event and needed to change.
