Male or female, everyone can admit to doing a doubletake after passing the front of an Abercrombie & Fitch store, though it's not always for the reason the company would like. Forget the stupid A&F-branded clothes that are nothing more than an international symbol for douche and forget the fact that they spray their nasty cologne out onto the streets; the doubletake is all about the abs on the men who stand sentry at the store entrances...and now even Hong Kong has them.
This month, HK gears up to welcome its very first Abercrombie as 110 A&F male models wander the city, manning promo events and otherwise just touristing around, posing for photos.

We're now just weeks away from the premiere of chef Gordon Ramsay's hotel fix-it show, Hotel Hell and Ramsay is doing his best to stir up interest by talking about--what else?--sex. Specifically, honeymoon suite sex. More specifically, honeymoon suite sex stains. (Look away now if you are eating lunch.)
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews yesterday, Ramsay told the audience to avoid booking the honeymoon suite saying, "I just didn't think it could shoot that far. I'm talking about if you shake a can of Coke and open it." Vommm.
Yet stains like these are largely what Ramsay's new show is about.

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.
· Andaz Is Heading to India: Hyatt Hotels have just announced plans for an Andaz Hotel in Guragon, India. The hotel will have 275 rooms along with 75 serviced apartments. Very interesting. There will also be a multi-cuisine restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, a specialty restaurant, a bar and gourmet store, a six-treatment room spa, a fitness center and a swimming pool. And Andaz brand standards like free WiFi and complimentary minibar drinks and snacks, we presume. Andaz Guragon will open in Late 2014.
· Baccarat Hotel & Residences Definitely Opening in Midtown Manhattan: Looks like the Starwood Stalker was right. Baccarat Hotels, a super-luxe hotel brand that was conceived in the hotel boom years but never panned out, is coming to Midtown Manhattan in the old Donnell Library on W. 53rd Street. The New York Times reports the hotel will have 114 rooms and 64 condos spread over 45 stories. Interestingly, the hotel's design will meet feng shui standards.

Along with college girls, suburban grandmothers and soccer moms, we too were secretly titillated by E. L. James' erotic Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. We toted the books on planes, read by the pool in Sin City (with just about everyone else in Vegas) and sometimes, we sheepishly skimmed while waiting at the drive-thu for our coffee.
As we got deeper into Anastasia and Christian's complex relationship, it turns out that we were only doing our job. The Heathman Hotel in Portland as a prominent setting to the story made us wonder, 'Why doesn't the Heathman have a Fifty Shades of Grey package ?'
Well, it turns out they do.

We already know that Hotel Max in downtown Seattle likes to express itself. Artistically, that is. The 350 original paintings and photographs scattered around the hotel ought to tell you so—least of all the funky guest room doors, which each showcase one of 39 different designs by local artists.
Now, with two new promotions—"Shoot From The Hip" and "Fifty Shades of Seattle"—guests at the hotel will be able to be part of that creative process, though in two very different ways.
But whether you end up enjoying Seattle from behind the lens of a tricked-out analog camera, or gazing at it from above during a 30-minute "helitour," we don't think you'll be struggling for any inspiration.

The Mondrian SoHo—romantic? Yes. But apparently not so liberal when it comes to people wanting to sex it up in the rooms.
The Daily News is telling us that a members-only swingers club called School of Sex (yes, they do have a Facebook page) was holding an event at the hotel over the weekend when security found out what was going on, and promptly shut the whole thing down.
Luckily, as the School of Sex puts it, "members were given ample time to exit the venue and say their goodbyes." Phew. Well, that's a relief.

We knew it was only a matter of time before we saw a hotel package capitalizing on the New York Times' #1 bestselling “Fifty Shades of Grey” novel. And lo’, a special just appeared in our inbox!
San Francisco’s female-owned Personality Hotels company whipped up (cough) a “Fifty Shades of Women” package designed to encourage ladies to take control of their lover.
First, you'll choose deluxe accommodations at their Hotel Diva, Hotel Union Square, or Kensington Park properties. Then, you’ll get an intimacy kit from Minna Life filled with a black satin scarf, an Ola vibrator, lube, limited edition designer condoms by Art of Lust(limited edition condoms? say whaaaat?),and, of course, the obligatory pompom feather (OK, does anyone really like feathers? Please, weigh in on this, y'all).
Ball gag, anyone?
It's that time of the year again, when thousands upon thousands from the LGBT and leather/BDSM communities come together for International Mister Leather, a long weekend convention in Chicago that's part tradeshow, part beauty pageant and mostly party. This will be the 34th annual if you can believe it, and the massive event returns to entirely take over Chicago's largest hotel, the 2,020-room Hyatt Regency (which is also the largest Hyatt in the world).
Typically the event is all fun (and it's the fifth most profitable convention that happens in Chicago) and a Chicago contact reveals that two weddings will be held at this year's shindig. Ah, but there's a dark side as IML falls into the midst of a heated debate between the Hyatt hotel and its union staff who've repeatedly protested, including this big walkout.

Back last fall, we were having some seriously lovey-dovey feelings after visiting the Peninsula New York's wraparound Sun Terrace, an intimate urban oasis, raised up on the twenty-first floor of the hotel with sprawling views of midtown, endless rows of black deck chairs, and most importantly, a strong sense of quiet.
Today, we learn that we're not the only ones with a strong sense of attachment to the place. Fellow hotel lover John Travolta felt so comfortable during visits to the tranquil spa that he was known to get a little, er....intimate with some of the male masseurs employed there.
Now, a former masseur at the hotel has come forward claiming Travolta's bad behavior landed him on the hotel's black list back in the early 2000s, after multiple male employees flat out refused to be alone in a room with him.
Hotel Sex / Hotel Porn / Sexy Hotels / Nadya Suleman / Standard Hotels / Celebrity Scoop / → All Tags
The world cringed in horror this weekend as Nadya Suleman made the weird jump from eccentric, attention-seeking mother of fourteen children to porn star. TMZ reported that Octomom showed up to do her first video shoot at a mansion in San Fernando Valley, and actually did a pretty good job. Great.
Now that she's elevated herself into the lucrative (we hope) world of doin' it in front of the camera, a plain old hotel stay has the potential for so much more. So without further ado, here are a few places that might better suit her...purposes.
Photo booths are always a fun way to lighten the mood in any hotel lobby or bar, and in Suleman's case, could be a great money-saver if she ever needs to "rehearse" for her next shoot. Photos taken at The Shore Hotel's digital photo booth can only be emailed or shared via Twitter and Facebook—so whatever the self-loving Octomom may get up to in there, we at least know she won't be wasting paper.
So we get that hotel managers have tough jobs sometimes. Guests get angry, they want free stuff, they make a mess, they don't want to pay for damages, yada yada yada. And most of the time, their tales from the crypt just make us laugh.
But rather than laughing, we were kinda grossed out after reading an interview Gadling conducted with an anonymous Las Vegas hotel supervisor, who has by now gotten pretty nonchalant about all the weird stuff that goes on over there. But of all the messes people leave behind in Vegas hotels (and which they just get charged for afterward), can you guess the most common offense? You might feel grossed out (like we did), and you might vow to never visit a Vegas hotel again (yeah, right), but just think of the poor housekeepers that have to clean up!
Not that we have anything against nudity. Nor do we disapprove of unconventional wedding ceremonies. It's just, well, after all the Fashion Week madness here in New York, it's kind of refreshing to see guests who just don't give a darn.
Over 100 couples sent in detailed reasons as to why they should be picked for the clothes-optional getaway. And we're guessing the reasons had to be something other than "to save money on a wedding gown." Once they arrived, each couple was treated to a four-night stay at the resort, in exchange for agreeing to be filmed for an upcoming documentary. Which means they get to save money on a wedding photographer too. Good deal!
