For an indie flick, the hyper-raunchy Spring Breakers did pretty well at the box office over opening weekend. Not that we're too surprised—with two former Disney stars in bikinis and James Franco playing a cornrowed rapper called 'Alien,' the movie was bound to pique a fair amount of curiosity.

Tampa Bay natives will recognize the local ice cream parlor, liquor store and police station that make cameos in the film, but for Spring Breakers' most iconic scene, director Harmony Korine rounded up a bunch of real life spring breakers drinking real life booze to stage a real life pool party. The venue of choice? An abandoned hotel located on the grounds of the Coral Reef Resort.

According to multiple TripAdvisor reviews, the "abandoned pink building" located in the front of the resort is something of an eyesore for actual guests, but for Korine's purposes, the crumbling edifice worked just fine.

He told Ain't It Cool:

"The party scenes were chaos. There were thousands of kids in abandoned hotels just destroying things...and that’s the thing about chaos, it’s chaos. It’s almost impossible to control. So that was pretty intense."

Phew. We're glad it wasn't us down in St Pete last spring. These guys make Justin Bieber antics seem almost civilized.

For Valentine's Day, serial hotel mob scene instigator Justin Bieber decided to treat his girlfriend to somewhere nice. Anywhere on the town. Penthouse views. Heated towel racks. Grilled venison.

Yeah, the Bieb knows how to sleep around. After being spotted at the Dream Downtown's lobby restaurant last weekend, he found another, less scene-y spot for him and Selena Gomez to do a little dinner-and-a-movie action in a swank suite for Valentine's Day—except we're guessing there was a lot less "dinner" than "movie" going on, if you know what we mean...wink, wink.

We Have Selena Gomez to Blame For This Bad Case of Hotel Lust

You may know the luxe Hotel de Paris in Monaco from the James Bond movies and its location adjacent to the famous Monte Carlo casino but now your daughter also knows the hotel, thanks to new Selena Gomez movie, "Monte Carlo."

But just FYI, there is no Grimaldi Suite at the hotel, although the Churchill and Garnier suites are nothing short of spectacular. Not that the regular rooms are all that shabby either. The five different room categories each have their own distinct look (we're partial to the pretty city view rooms and the more modern courtyard rooms--the sea view rooms seem fussy) and all come with luxe furnishings, decor and amenities.

The pool at Las Ventanas. We declare it #winning.

The question that we’re chewing over as we chew over our oatmeal this morning: if you were embarking on a new affair with a sexy celeb, where would you take them for a night of passion?

In the red corner, we have Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez who, it turns out, spent the night before the Oscars shacked up with the cougars in a penthouse suite at the St. Regis Monarch Beach at Dana Point.

And in the blue are Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn who, Perez Hilton revealed yesterday, swept into Cabo for a one nighter at Las Ventanas al Paraiso on Tuesday. A spy reported that the pair were:

At the resort's spa bar, drinking margaritas, talking, smoking and nibbling on ceviche. When they finished, they left quietly and casually, but also hand in hand!
