As the whole internet knows by now, Paris Hilton has been categorically demoted from vapid-but-fun reality TV star to villain, after a taxi driver recorded a conversation in which she basically wrote off the entire gay male population. In the aftermath of the controversy, we thought it would be appropriate to call out a few gay-friendly hotels that Paris would do well to avoid for the time being...
Millennium Bostonian Hotel is one of 14 IGLTA-sponsor Millennium hotels around the US (other cities include LA, Chicago, Boston and the tea-loving Millennium UN Plaza in New York)—each of which offers a 15% discount for guests who use the promo code PRIDE when booking reservations. The Boston property (pictured) overlooks Faneuil Hall, and sits within walking distance of the North End and Boston Harbor. Rates from $330/night, with the discount.
Paris Hilton's had a rough month. Her latest reality show on Oxygen has tanked and her relationship with former Vegas nightclub man, Cy Waits, has ended. But while America continues to lose interest in the blonde socialite, Paris still has big dreams of expanding her branded empire which already includes hair extensions, shoes and perfumes.
Yes, once again, that includes creating her own line of hotels. We've been here before folks. First with Nicky O Hotels from Paris' sister, Nicky and last year when Paris said, "And right now that I've done everything I’ve wanted to do, that would definitely be the next step, to open my own hotels.”
This year, Paris is adding beach clubs into the mix, telling Parade.com:
The next step for me is to be more involved with real estate. I'd love to open my own hotel and beach clubs. I'm actually in the process right now of doing that, so I'm excited."
The fading socialite flew to Tokyo after her court appearance yesterday via private plane but she still had to go through customs like the rest of us and that's when Japanese immigration authorities got suspicious. TMZ reports:
A source close to Paris tells us she flew to Japan on business and was questioned by immigration authorities as she got off the plane. Immigration authorities are allowing Paris to stay at an airport hotel until the matter is resolved. For her part, Paris hasn't decided whether to stay or leave.
Coincidentally, there is a Hilton Hotel near the airport, just a 10-minute shuttle ride away. We're not exactly sure that Paris is staying there but might as well get some help from the family business while she'll can.

Very disturbing news on the celebrity hotels front today--aging party heiress Paris Hilton has recently expressed her desires to get into the family business. Yes, that's right. Even after witnessing her sister Nicky fail to open a hotel in Miami, after much, much, hype, Paris still thinks she can open her own brand of hotels. From Fox News:
“I've pretty much done all you can do, but my next project that I'd like to do is get more involved in real estate – just from being in the business and growing up in it my whole life, it's always something I've been interested in,” Hilton told Pop Tarts last week at the launch of her 10th fragrance “Tease,” inspired by the classic beauty and glamour of Hollywood goddess Marilyn Monroe. “And right now that I've done everything I’ve wanted to do, that would definitely be the next step, to open my own hotels.”
Paris Hilton is going through yet another breakup as yet another one of her "I'm so in love, we'll be together forever" relationships has crashed and burned. The poor fella' this time? Doug Reinhardt. The "table-dancing must go on" post-breakup venue? mur.mur at The Borgata Hotel & Spa in Atlantic City.
Paris hosted a night at the club this past Saturday with some fake "BFFs" and some real ones like fashion designer Richie Rich. Paris even
was paid to say shouted out that "mur.mur is the best club in Atlantic City. Borgata is Vegas on the East Coast. So hot I love it!"
Apparently, the party girl stopped at the hotel on her way to Dubai and spent a night in one of The Water Club hotel rooms. Before hitting up mur.mur, she dined at Izakaya with friends. Also in attendance that night at mur.mur was Danny Veltri, recent winner of Hell’s Kitchen, who is getting ready for the opening of Fornelletto Cucina Italiana from Chef Stephen Kalt this summer. In the words of Paris herself, "Yeah, that's hot."
More Paris party pics after the jump.
Paris Hilton and HotelChatter collided on Friday during some after-work drinks. We arrived at The Penthouse atop the Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica only to find a filming crew had set up in the back of the restaurant, near the choicest of choice views.
We scurried behind the crew and hit up the other half of the restaurant which was blissfully free of any cameras, television monitors and the like. Later as we left The Penthouse, filming had wound down so we casually asked a crew member what they were filming. The reply? "Oh Paris Hilton's "My BFF" show." Gag.
When will LA hotels be free of Paris Hilton? It's times like these when we wish her family did own and operate Hilton Hotels then she would be contractually and familially obligated to spend her time there.
PS. If you look closely, you can see us in the pic above.

A hotel guest snapped this photo of Paris Hilton and "My Life on the D-List's" Kathy Griffin sauntering around the pool at the Avalon Hotel. Paris, fresh off the her Hawaii trip, was helping Kathy out by filming an appearance on her show at the hotel's pool area, Blue on Blue. Here is the scoop from the guest:
Paris and Kathy interacted well - talked for a good 30-40 min in a nice poolside cabana at blue on blue. Funny that Kathy G was waiting in lobby for Paris to join her to walk out around the pool to the cabana - and Paris finally came out in her bikini - spent a minute or so checking herself out in the mirror screen by the front door - finally was ready - a bunch of people were telling her she looked fab - and Kathy G immediately yelled "thank you" and "I know"!!! It got a lot of laughs. Kathy was really nice to everyone - talking and interacting. Paris - kept to herself and on-task.
Apparently, Hustle n' Flow's Terrance Howard was also at the hotel and popped in on the shoot to say hello to Paris and Kathy. Just another day in Beverly Hills folks!
We almost wanted to ignore this, but we feel it is our duty to tell you: not only is the heartbreakingly-still-in-existence reality show Paris Hilton's My New BFF back for a second season (a Second. Season.), but it is being filmed reportedly, at least in Vegas. And while the show is shooting, Paris herself is going to be calling the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino her home base for a while. Be advised.
Before we continue, please take a moment to sigh and be sad about the fact that Paris' career is still going strong while so many people in this great nation are having employment troubles.
Okay. Anyway. Vegas Deluxe is saying that Paris has come to Vegas to "start filming Season 2 of MTV’s Paris Hilton’s My New BFF reality show. She will be headquartered at the Hard Rock Hotel for the shooting." Recall that back in October, she did the UK version of the show in London and crashed at the May Fair during filming (and was spotted out and about quite a bit) so, Vegas-ites and future Hard Rock guests, stay on the lookout for a Hilton sister on the hunt for a BFF.

Ah, Miss Paris Hilton: in any tabloid story about the famous-for-being-famous blonde, you'll notice that she is referred to as "the hotel heiress" and it happens frequently enough that we never forget that Conrad Hilton, founder of Hilton Hotels, happens to be her grandfather.
And even Conrad had eight children (Paris' father, Rick, was number six) and Paris' family tree is clearly massive and widespread it still surprises us a little bit when the blonde is spotted at hotels that don't share her last name. We figure she'd want to respect the G-poppy, you know?
And yet, it appears she has been more of a Four Seasons kinda girl as of late. Lovetripper reports that she and her latest squeeze, Doug Reinhardt, jetted off to Hawaii recently and "were repeatedly spotted" at the Four Seasons Maui while on their tropical vacay. From there, they headed to the midwest and crashed at the Four Seasons St. Louis.
Maybe Paris is just hitting the Four Seasons circuit because Hilton's luxury brands, Conrad and Waldorf-Astoria, aren't really her thing. Or maybe there aren't enough of 'em in the places she wants to go. Eh, maybe Denizen will be more her speed.

Your favorite celebs have been making news in and out of various hotels this holiday weekend, so we've rounded up the highlights for you right here.
It's Britney, Bitch(ing)
In case you missed it, Britney Spears' epic MTV Documentary (yes, we realize that is an oxymoron), "On the Record," aired last night. While we were not physically able to reach into the screen and scoop out Britney to take her home and soothe her crying, we were able to notice that parts of the documentary were filmed at the Mondrian LA. Lots of teary gazing out the window went down; not a whole lot else.
Later on, we spotted her seeking refuge from the paps at Soho Grand after a New York shopping experience turned into a bit of a mob scene.
We wrote yesterday about The May Fair's new YouTube channel, and we watched footage from the general manager's little chitty-chat with Paris Hilton herself. In the vid, she says she would live in London if she could because it's her favorite city in the world (we say: please, by all means, GO).
And now we hear -- from a tipster, of course -- that she's sticking around the city for a little while now. While she's been gallivanting around London working on "Paris Hilton's British Best Friend," (unfortunately we're not kidding and yes, it is very, very real) she has moved from the Sanderson Hotel over to the May Fair today to stay there through the end of the month.
Our tipster also told us she's thinking of filming a segment of her show at the May Fair, too. Rumor has it that she has her eye on the super pink Schiaparelli Suite for the show. Um, like, would it involve her potential British besties standing in the room and helping her pick out an outfit for an event? Or do we smell a slumber party?

It seems automatically defacing the wallpaper in a luxury suite will get you put on a hotel's dreaded blacklist.
A spokesman for the Moscow Hyatt Hotel confirmed the star had been blacklisted and fined £4,500 for allegedly defacing their £8,000-a-night presidential suite.
She posed next to the offending graffiti - which reads "Paris Moscow 2008" - for a photoshoot in which she dressed in a skimpy dress, black boots and leopard-print knickers.
The spokesperson also confirmed that tagging the hotel's suite walls automatically put Paris on their blacklist. Now, if only America as a whole could put Paris on their blacklist.
