Hello

I am travelling to the USA next month and am planning to take my iBook. Will it charge in my hotel room if I just plug the UK socket into a UK--->US converter and plug the converter into the socket?

Yes.
The adapter can handle all voltages, so you'll just need an adapter for the different shape of the plug.
