TODO: HReview of hotels

The Travel category in my cellphone/PDA has got a bunch of entries that are really only there for historical purposes. Better to move them here. A few of them have notes that might be considered useful review info.

I'd like to add lat/long info for all these hotels, a la citiLookup.n3@@ link. Hmm.... editing microformat stuff brings up the "partial understanding meets MVC issues."

Hmm... asHCard.xsl (from palmagent@@) doesn't do a very good job with tel: URIs.
