    This is a hotel I stayed in America

    Is this correct:

    This is a hotel I stayed in America.

    Or is this correct:

    This is a hotel I stayed in in America.

    Are both ok, or just one.

    Thanks,

    David S

    Re: This is a hotel I stayed in America

    Only the second is possible. To avoid the rather clumsy repetition of 'in', however, other options include

    This is a hotel where I stayed in America.

    and

    This is a hotel in which I stayed in America.

    Or

    'This is a hotel I stayed at in America.'
