Hotel News Briefs :: More Animals Seeking Respite in Hotels
There's tons of hotel news flying around this week and we don't have time to give each and every story the love and attention it may deserve, so you will have to settle for some news briefs.
· New Boutique Hotel for Philly: The City of Brotherly Love continues its hotel boom with the opening of the Independent Hotel on June 20th. Interestingly, the hotel only has 24 rooms, making it like a mini-boutique hotel.
· DeNiro's "Labor of Love": Robert DeNiro is defending the illegal penthouse at his Greenwich Hotel today in front of the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission. The commission may order him to tear it down and start over.
· The Summer of Hotel Animals: It's officially the Summer of Hotel Animals. This time a raccoon is hanging out in the garage of the Park Inn in Berlin. The staff has nicknamed him Alex. Alex doesn't like the hotel food. He likes the trash bins outside the Burger King next door. Hah!
