With tourism to Vietnam ever on the increase (and with the country all over the news these days after Angelina picked up the new kid), it's about time that the imperial city of Hue with its famous Citadel also got a 5-star hotel. Since June last year, the Imperial Hotel in Hue has been in operation on the banks of the Perfume River.
The Imperial of Hue City is starting out with almost 200 rooms, and current rates for a deluxe room start at just $130, including breakfast, bottles of mineral water and round trip airport transfer. They also give you free broadband internet, although it might not quite be Wifi yet. This price is for a two night stay, but for a 5-star even the daily rate is pretty reasonable.
Angelina Jolie in addition to being a Brad-lover, a Third World-children lover, an airplane-lover and a tattoo-lover, is without a doubt, a hotel-lover. Her latest act of devotion to hotels? Paying $700 for two hours at Shutters on the Beach, so Maddox and her could freshen up after a day at the beach. Star Magazine reports::
"Angelina said they only wanted the room for two hours -- time enough for them both to take a shower," says a source. "She was very sweet and seemed like a concerned mom. It was just very bizarre, when she and Brad own two houses here in Los Angeles, that she would need to spend that kind of money on a hotel room just so she and Maddox could shower."
Remember the good ole days when she used to stash sex toys in hotel rooms? Now she's probably stashing diapers and Wiggles videos.

Maybe Africa is over. Maybe the new hot place is India. Maybe Madonna is completely out of touch and in several months, will be wishing she'd adopted an Indian baby. Why? Because Brad and Angelina are in India, that's why.
Camping out "unofficially" at Le Meridien in Pune, where the duo are filming/producing the Marianne Pearl movie, the India trip is all about family right now. That is, until the paparazzi start to mob them during a rickshaw ride (above) and a bodyguard starts to strangle a photograhper.
Nevertheless, Angie has been using the gym daily to keep her post-preggers body in shape, after the gym closes to the public of course. The couple has also had plenty of clothes purchased for them from the hotel clothing store. This one seems odd as hotel shops usually carry Jimmy Buffet-style clothing and in India, maybe some generic saris. But apparently here, it's the best place to buy haute couture in town and Brangelina has been loading up on "party clothes" by Wendell Rodricks for evenings out which includes dining at the rooftop restaurant.
Not all this pertinent info has just been leaked from hotel staff. One guest actually caught glimpse of the super-star duo:
On Saturday, a guest caught a glimpse of the couple and their eldest son on the fifth floor. "Angelina seems to be friendly. She was dressed in jeans and a casual top and looked my way and acknowledged me when they passed by. Brad, however, looked straight through me," he said.
"Their security guards reached the floor before them. They even asked me to leave the floor using the stairs since Angelina and Brad would be taking the elevator up. I refused and just sat on the sofa in front of the elevator."
Wow, we always pegged Angelina as the scary, look-straight-through-your-soul half of Brangelina but we learn instead that it's Brad's Blue Steel that will make you cry.
When we saw this ad from Jumeirah Hotels in the Sunday Times Travel mag, we just couldn't help ourselves.
We were semi-surprised that Jumeirah's hotel group extended far beyond the Burj, and includes the likes of the Essex House in New York. However, far more surprising was how Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt driven their current ad campaign was. What foresight.
