"She used to stay in a luxurious hotel and entertained her friends lavishly."
Please help me to modify this compound sentence into complex sentence.
Let the sentence be more elegant.
Thanks.

Complex sentence #2 (permalink) Sun Nov 18, 2012 16:20 pm   Complex sentence
 

If the meaning is that she entertained her friends while she was at the hotel:
She used to stay at a luxury hotel where she entertained her friends lavishly.
If it means she did both of these things, but not necessarily at the same time:
She entertained her friends lavishly and she would often stay at a luxurious hotel.
