Best Celebrity Performance: Amanda Bynes

December 30, 2013 at 3:17 PM | by | Comments (0)

It's that time of year again: the 2013 HotelChatter Awards! Today and tomorrow, we'll be showcasing the best (and worst) of hotels over the past year. But we couldn't do it without you! Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, or shoot us an email. And the Award goes to...

Before we get into this award, the good news here is that Amanda Bynes is doing way better than she was back in July when she trashed a room at the Ritz-Carlton Central Park. Still, the damage that she did to the suite was commendable, by Charlie Sheen standards.

According to TMZ, Bynes was mean to hotel staff (she told one employee she was "too ugly"), smoked way too much weed, littered the room with bottles of Diet Coke, destroyed the desk by rolling joints on it and disgraced the bathroom with crazy amounts of face and make-up products. To top it all off, she disabled a smoke detector. Her total hotel bill was about $9,000 for nine days but she probably paid an additional amount for all this damage. Eventually, the hotel kicked her out and not long after that, Bynes fled to California and was placed in a 5150 psychiatric hold after she set a fire in someone's driveway and doused her dog with gasoline. Ay.

Bynes also had some other memorable hotel moments this year--hot-tubbing with a wig on at the Revel Resort in Atlantic City and going pants-less at the W Times Square. Fortunately for all luxury hotel employees everywhere, these crazy escapades of hers have finally come to an end.

Other notable celeb performances? DMX streaking a Detroit hotel, Sean Penn throwing a lobby tantrum and Angelina Jolie booking Jen Aniston's favorite Sunset Tower suite. But we won't even mention the pop star whose last name rhymes with "cleaver."

That concludes Day 1 of the HotelChatter 2013 Awards! Stay tuned tomorrow for more, including Best Hotel Scene, Best New Service and Hotelier of the Year!

Although troubled Amanda Bynes is now recuperating in a psychiatric facility in Los Angeles, details of her last hotel stay at the Ritz-Carlton Central Park are coming out. And with photos too.

TMZ paid a hotel employee somehow got their hands on photos of the damage Amanda did to her hotel room before they kicked her out for being mean and smoking too much weed. And it's astonishing. So many bottles of diet coke, ashes everywhere, rolling papers and tons of cosmetic creams. Bynes also went above and beyond by disabling the hotel room's smoke detector. Word is she is paranoid and thinks that smoke detectors are "spying" on her. But um, also maybe she didn't want the smoke detector picking up on the marijuana.

Amanda Bynes Gets Booted from The Ritz-Carlton Central Park for Being Mean

The Ritz-Carlton Central Park is one of Manhattan's most elite hotels, with rates starting at around $700 a night. So excuse us for having no sympathy for troubled former star, Amanda Bynes who was kicked out of the hotel on Friday for insulting employees and for chronically smoking the chronic in her guestroom. TMZ has the detes:

Our sources say Amanda was a nightmare from the get-go, smoking weed everyday despite warnings from hotel staff. We're told Amanda tried using spray chemicals to mask the weed smell.

But that's not it ... we're told Amanda was unspeakably rude to the hotel staff, telling the front desk girl she was "too ugly" to check her in. We're told Amanda then offered her plastic surgeon's services to the desk girl in question ... and the tears started flowing.

That would never happen if it was Josh Groban!

Amanda Bynes Takes Her Wig to the Revel Resort

It's been a rough Monday for us but we're still having a better day than Amanda Bynes's wig. As of late, that poor thing (the wig, not Amanda) has been arrested, thrown in jail, hauled to court and then randomly sent up to Buffalo to engage in some trampolining. All without getting a proper brushing!

And now, Amanda has hauled her weary wig to the Revel Resort in Atlantic City where she let it soak in jacuzzi water while taking pictures with fans. Amanda's #1 wig watcher, TMZ reports:

Sources tell TMZ, Bynes checked in solo at the Revel Hotel ... where she stared into her phone while surrounded by strangers in the tub.

We're told she did pose for some photos with fans -- while wearing her famous blonde wig in the jacuzzi -- but if Amanda didn't like the way she looked, she demanded they be deleted ASAP.

Our heart is breaking for Wiggie. Especially since we all know what happens in the hot tub at the Jersey Shore, thanks to Snooki. We hope Amanda had the decency to treat her wig to a nice blowout at the salon later.

Meanwhile, the Revel Resort's brush with fame continues tonight with an appearance on "The Bachelorette"! Fingers crossed Desiree fares better than Kanye West and Amanda's wig.

Amanda Bynes Bunks at the W Times Square...With No Pants On

We're no strangers to celebs having total meltdowns in hotels (hi, Charlie Sheen! hi, Lindsay Lohan!), so when we read about 27-year-old actress Amanda Bynes' recent spaz-out at the W New York Times Square, we thought to ourselves, "Of course."

In Touch reports that Bynes was enjoying a month-long extended stay at the hotel recently, when her erratic behavior started to creep out employees in a big way. According to the article:

"…an employee 'found her curled up in the corner of the gym smoking — with no pants on!'"

Apparently, Amanda never got around to reading our handy guide on "What Not To Do In a Hotel". Because we'd definitely file that one under "do not do." Ever.

Bynes has certainly been having a tough time lately (On Thursday, a day after her 27th birthday, she announced she had an eating disorder). And she was also photographed wandering around Times Square (probably en route to her hotel) holding a FedEx package, but then explained on Twitter that the girl in the photographs "was an impostor." Um, right…

As we see it, the W Times Square might actually be her best bet for the time being: earlier this year, the hotel was offering a detox program with supplies for a six-day juice cleanse (the promo's expired, but then again, we're sure they could bend a few rules for the former star of She's The Man.

The Standard Hotel is The Hot New Place for Hot Messes

The girl in the box is actually NOT a hot mess.

The Standard Hotel on Sunset in West Hollywood has long been a famous spot for pretty much everything else aside from its hotel rooms thanks to its chicquarium, adult Sunday brunches and rotating art installations. And now this month, it's the hotel's secret club, Smoke and Mirrors, that's making the news.

For starters actress Amanda Bynes has been banned from the hotel after she was last spotted leaving the club drunk, just moments before she swiped a cop car and was arrested for drunk driving.

And today we learn that our old favorite hot mess, Lindsay Lohan has been accused of attacking a woman at the club for talking to a male friend of Lohan's. Lindsanity is denying the allegations, saying she was home all night but now a hotel employee is telling cops that he saw Lohan there. TMZ reports:
