A few weeks ago, we told you about the opening of the St. Ermin's Hotelin London that we attended and showed you what our room looked like. Apologies for the lag time, but here's a fun little piece of hotel history.
Approaching St. Ermin's, the first thing you will notice is the impressive courtyard outside the main entrance, flanked on three sides by the hotel. Restoring the courtyard to its original "grandeur" was an important element of the overall renovation.
Then upon walking into the lobby, you step onto mosaic floors, turning left to find reception in the corner. The hotel's public spaces, predominantly the lobby and ballroom, feature extensive white plasterwork, with everything from flowers to a sudden procession of wild animals (up the lobby staircase, to the right in the corner if you want to find them).
The Examiner's Yeas and Nays political blog scored pictures of room 871 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC which has now become infamous as the tryst location for Gov. Eliot Spitzer and a high-priced prostitute.
And we know at least one of you were wondering yesterday if he checked in under a fake name and it turns out he was a fan of the moniker of George Fox which is actually the name of one of Spitzer's friends and donors. Classy guy.
