any EF lens will work on your 5d.

24-70 or 24-105 is a good start. Pair it with a 70-200.

Other suggestions might be a Tamron 28-75, but you lose some IQ (but it is less expensive).

That's a really wide open question :D
Depends on how and what you shoot. If I was in your position, for me I'd try the 24-105mm L F4 IS lens. Can cover portraits, landscapes and many things in between. IMHO - it would be wise to shell out for quality glass for use on the 5D whether its the classic or Mark II.

By the way - Love the Grove Park Inn !

Yes, I have some ideas...Do YOU have any ideas as to what you like to shoot? What you were shooting? What lenses were you using?

How's this "idea" ?

Do you mean that you have only EF-S lenses? If so, yes, they are manufactured for the crop-body cameras. Your new 5D accepts EF lenses.

What is your budget? You have a choice from consumer grade or professional lenses. There are a few sites on the web that review Canon lenses. Here is one that's an easy read:

I'd start with a 24-105, personally.

If budget is a concern, maybe a 28-135 IS. Lots of those are being pawned off because it came as a kit lens with many 40D and 50D units.

Any EF lens you like, not EF-S.

I'll second http://www.the-digital-picture (external link). There are lens recommendations for a variety of shooting needs along with detailed and grown-up reviews (ie., the author doesn't call any lens "plastic puppy poop" or you "defective"). It's a terrific resource for making equipment purchase decisions in the Canon domain.
