Macaulay Culkin Snaps, Then Checks Into the Ibis

April 19, 2013 at 9:43 AM | by | Comments (0)

Things got a little crazy for Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin earlier this week while he was vacationing in Brighton, England. Apparently, the former child star was leaving a nightclub late Monday night, when he had a full-on temper tantrum and ended up attacking one of the photographers waiting outside.

Tsk, tsk, Macaulay! What would Catherine O'Hara have to say about this?

After having to be physically restrained by other photographers, Culkin then jumped into a waiting van and sped off to his hotel, the Ibis*. (This wouldn't have been our first choice of hotel for an internationally-known movie star, but, hey, weirder things have happened!)

Culkin kept his face covered with sunglasses and a scarf as he made his way inside the hotel, where he was then photographed checking in at the Front Desk. The Daily Mail reports:

"At approximately 1.30am, Macaulay arrived at the Ibis hotel, covering his face with his scarf until he was safely inside the lobby. Once inside, the 32-year-old looked far calmer."

Based on how calm he looks at the hotel, you could almost be tricked into thinking the whole nightclub incident was much ado about nothing. Wrong. As the Daily Mail's photos clearly show, Culkin was having one heck of an episode—cursing and screaming, hair all disheveled, arms akimbo, psycho-killer-style.

We just hope his next hotel plans ahead with lots of fruit baskets and smiling employees. They certainly don't want to do anything that will upset this whacko.

Jennifer Lawrence Blows Off Oscar Steam (cough) At Hawaii Hotel

March 1, 2013 at 7:23 PM | by | Comments (0)

We try not to judge or debate legalities when it comes to weed use in the celebrity world, but damn if it hasn't seemed like a trend lately. You've got Justin Bieber photo'd puffing (but seemingly not passin'--duuuude), Rihanna being unapologetically blunted in various Instagram and Twitter feeds, and then there's Lil Wayne who doesn't GAF about anything except "Good Kush and alcohol". And these are just the new jacks. We won't even talk about Snoop Dogg Lion, Willie Nelson, and other celebs who celebrate Mary Jane like a Rick James track.

But what about this gal Jennifer Lawrence? The 22-year old gal who's been the darling of the screen lately, and especially the film awards circuit? She recently won an Academy Award, took a spill at the ceremony, and then days later, the picture above comes out of her drinking red wine and smoking a "hand-rolled cigarette" while relaxin' at a Hawaii hotel.

Naturally, everyone went batshit crazy with this info. HC? We just wanna know the hotel where this downtime took place. We stay in our proper gossipy lane! So, we got a bit nosey (that we don't apologize for) and went on the hunt for the location.

Andy Murray Will Open His Own Luxury Hotel In Scotland

February 26, 2013 at 9:03 AM | by | Comments (0)

Andy Murray is only 25, but his resume is already pretty full: third ranked tennis champion in the world; first British male to win the US Open since 1936; gold medal winner at the recent 2012 Olympics; sexy Scotsman. But you know what was missing? Hotelier. He hadn't quite crossed that one off the list yet.

Until now.

Murray announced yesterday that he has taken over the Cromlix House, a 139-year-old Victorian mansion in central Scotland (about 45 miles northeast of Edinburgh), and plans to turn it into a 15-room luxury hotel. Though, don't expect him to be answering telephones or delivering room service trolleys, though. Having purchasing the 50-acre estate for £1.8 million, Murray will contract the services of Inverlochy Castle Management International to actually run the place.

(Interestingly, the company's portfolio includes Inverlochy Castle Hotel, which is recognized as a Relais & Chateaux property).

CNN reports that Murray in fact has a bit of history with the Cromlix House, since not only did Murray grow up a few miles from the property, but his brother Jamie (also a tennis player) was married there in 2010. As of now, Murray hasn't commented too much on his specific vision for the hotel, which is set to open in 2014. Though, if he's seeking a creditable interior designer, we hear Venus Williams is looking for new projects to work on…

It's a wonder she gets a hotel in any city at this point given that trouble seems to "follow" Lindsay Lohan wherever she goes!

She did win our award for the "Biggest Celebrity Performance in 2012" and, by the looks of it, she is campaigning for a repeat title in 2013.

As if W Union Square didn't learn their lesson from the last time they had her as a guest, here is another tragic tale of LiLo in a hotel room.

This time it involves copious amounts of cigarette burns totally nearly $50,000 of damage. Well, slap your momma! What in fresh hell is going on, here?

While CBS' "The Good Wife" got no love on the Golden Globes, we still heart the show. We also learned Josh Charles (who plays Will Gardner) spent an award-worthy vacation this past Christmas at Nevis' tony Nisbet Plantation Beach Club.

He made the trek with girlfriend and performance artist/novelist Sophie Flack, who tweeted a photo of something that looks like... art? Hey, whatever, we love art.

According to staff, the couple joined in the round-the-island bike ride (19 miles), went on a romantic sunset cruise and danced under the stars during the resort's famous weekly beach BBQ.

Check out the cute couple photo!

We get it, celebrities love to show off and get the cream of the crop when they travel by booking the suites of the world's best hotels. Melbourne's The Como is no different when it comes to attracting the glamour of stars from the silver screen to the soccer field to the stage.

The Como, in one of Melbourne's most prestigious areas, South Yarra, has made a name for itself for the past 22 years by consistently offering high-end accommodations and impeccable service. Now they've revamped three super luxurious suites, that's seen the likes of David Beckham, Kylie Minogue and Paris Hilton.

The recently rebranded M Gallery Hotel offers plenty of artist designed rooms with all the bells and whistles, but these suites are truly where it's at.

Some Celebrities Went Ham Over The Holidays

January 2, 2013 at 6:21 PM | by | Comments (0)

It look like celebs have been living it up over the holidays. So much so, we’ve had to condense it into a mini digest. Here’s what’s been going on with the bold faced and the beautiful.

KimYe Are Expecting a Baybay:Some people announce that they’re expecting with a cute little sonogram or something more demure. Not Kanye West. Nope. He had to deliver the news to thousands of folks at Atlantic City’s Revel Resort in this endearing manner, by saying during his December 30th concert, “stop the music right there and make noise for my baby mama," smiling in the direction of his boo, Kim Kardashian. Yes, that’s exactly how one wants to be referred to when revealed we are carrying your child, Yeezy!

Celeb Performance of 2012: Lindsay Lohan Acts Up And Down

December 28, 2012 at 2:19 PM | by | Comments (0)

It's that time of year again: the 2012 HotelChatter Awards! Today and Monday, 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...

Some would say “performance” is a euphemism for “acting out”. We’ll go with either of these defintions, because it doesn’t matter really—girl Lindsay Lohan has been doing all that and then some.

The acts of cray-cray have been numerous this year, from racking up a ridonkulous $46K bill at LA’s Chateau Marmont, the hit and run pandemonium of the Porsche variety outside NYC’s Dream Downtown, and then there was that abuse incident with not-so-BFF congressional aide Christian LaBella at the W Union Square, which involved a physical altercation between the pair and a pulling of a fire alarm. Mercy! And these were just acts that involved hotels! There's a laundry list of more mayhem we're too tired to get into.

Federer Finds Time For Tennis And Fine Wine in Argentina

Nothing like finishing up the year with a little gossip: Tennis great Roger Federer got some rest in the arms of the Algodon Mansion last week, putting his feet up after a few exhibition matches and children's training camps in Buenos Aires.

We're not surprised, as the Algodon Mansion is certainly one of Argentina's more upscale properties. Here's what we know: They have the self-appointed "hottest" staff in the city, the smallest of the ten rooms will run you about $400 a night, and they throw one hell of a party so long as you have some cash to throw down.

It's a five-star hotel, but we like to think of it as a luxurious B&B, replacing the oh-so-sweet-cinnamon-bun-baking innkeeper with a 24-hour at-your-freaking-service private butler.

More on Fine Federer's stay after the jump...

Kim Kardashian Turned 32 At The Hotel Cipriani

Roses are red, violets are blue. Kimye invaded Venice, here's a photo for you!

After just one month, it seems Kim Kardashian is already bored of her temporary Miami digs. The jetsetting reality star was whisked off to Europe over the weekend by boyfriend Kanye West to celebrate her 32nd birthday.

The pair—photographed nearly every step of the way—made their way around Venice on Sunday, with Kardashian tweeting at one point: "Italy is so beautiful! Best birthday ever!!!"

Well, all we have to say is, it's easy to have that kind of reaction when you're staying in a place like the Hotel Cipriani, where the Daily Mail reports they crashed. Located on Giudecca Island, rooms at the hotel start at around $1,300/night, though we're guessing Kimye splashed out on a suite. You know, to accommodate the camera crews.

Jennifer Aniston's Presence Caused A Hotel Employee To Lose His Job

Remind us never to stay at the same hotel as Jennifer Aniston, as we might, in our star-struck, child-of-the-90s Friends nerd-dom accidentally get someone fired.

At least, that's what happened last week in Santa Fe at the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado, when a hotel employee got the boot for divulging too much about Aniston's presence.

According to TMZ, a few guests had already spotted Aniston basking in the hotel's spa (evidently taking some time away from her usual LA haunt, the Sunset Tower). When shuttle bus driver Terry Siegler was asked about it, he confirmed she was in fact staying at the property, and even went on to talk her up a bit. But a few of Aniston's minions overheard the incident, and flipped out. Hotel management got involved, and before he knew it, Siegler was out of a job.
