LIES!  Phil LIES!   (:;)   He said the teams must make their way to the roof of "this" hotel in "word play" detour.  BUT the picture is clearly of the REX HOTEL, which is nowhere near the "star" roundabout (rotary).

Rather it is the roof of the building shown below.  LIES, Phil lies!   :knuckles:  :funny:

eta: Also happens to be the location of Puddin's Phuc Khang restaurant  :lol:  :funny:

When I was flying around Google Earth I did not go that far to look for the building, damn it! Lesson learned!
