In light of recent events where Lindsay Lohan and her mother were allegedly turned away from Loews Santa Monica and Shutters, we have decided to create a running tab on where the starlet is not welcome to visit the lobby, much less reserve a room.
Here's a tally of hotels that have said, "your money (or lack of) is no good here" to Lohan and the reasons why:
Soho Grand (2007)
· A drunken break-down that got her carried to her room and then escorted out for the night, has caused the hotel to think twice on giving her a room.
Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
· Spotted and videoed snorting cocaine is an easy way to be banned from any hotel.
Shutters on the Beach (2007)
· Lindsay trashed her room and even left a bloody syringe for the housekeeping staff to clean up upon check-out.
Mondrian Los Angeles (2007)
· Wouldn't accommodate her, claiming they were full, then witnessed the star losing her shit.
The Standard LA (2011)
· The hotel hasn't sent her packing, but after a drink throwing incident, LiLo blacklisted the hotel herself. Either way, you won't find her staying here.
Where else is LiLo persona non-grata? Find out after the jump!

Cleaning up might be easier with La Lohan gone.
Lindsay Lohan will never step foot in The Standard Hotel again ... or at least for the foreseeable future. She's telling friends the hotel is a curse, causing her nothing but heartache ... and this week's drink-throwing incident was the last straw.
Congrats Standard! Lindsay Lohan has never turned down anything in her life. How does it feel to be the first one on her blacklist? Ah but don't worry, you still have Amanda Bynes.
Celebrity Scoop / Toni Braxton / Four Seasons Hotels / Westin Hotels / Hotel Blacklists / → All Tags
Unbreak her heart and then fill 'er bank account up again! Toni Braxton has filed for bankruptcy, again, and this time she claims she owes various businesses and companies about $50 million.
TMZ has the full list of people she may owe money and obviously The Flamingo in Las Vegas, where she bailed on her headlining show a few years ago is on the list. Girl may never be able to pay them back! But we were also intrigued to see that Four Seasons Hotels and Westin Hotels were on the list as well.
Now we're very familiar with hotel blacklists here at HotelChatter but we wonder if it extends to bigger chains like FS and Westin. Typically, we see it at smaller boutique hotels and it's usually for bad behavior. But we guess it would also extend to non-payment.
But first, can someone explain how this works?
You might remember a couple of years back when we let you know about the Australian Guests Behaving Badly database. It's a website where member hotels can report anti-social and destructive hotel guests and share their names with other hotels so they can avoid having the kind of guests that no hotel really wants.
Guests Behaving Badly has now gone one step further and has announced a partnership with the Ubid4rooms website, an Australian hotel bidding site a bit similar to Priceline.
Two things are for certain concerning the reports that
former? actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi were arrested for allegedly stiffing the San Ysidro Ranch in Calif, out of a nearly $6,000 hotel bill. One, Randy and Evi are most likely crazy. They posed for their mugshots like it was a Facebook profile photo shoot and then scribbled off some letter to TMZ about how they in fact did pay the bill. Two, TMZ got way too excited about their mugshots.
But we still aren't sure if they actually did skip out on their hotel bill on August 20th. TMZ says the couple have done this sort of thing before at the Hotel Bel-Air but Evi sent a copy of a cashier's check they sent to the hotel with the amount requested. She also said:
I promise the state of California, Texas does not bother people over hamburgers ordered by room service, supposedly burglarized."
Um...ok. Either way, the duo have posted bail and are free to check into new hotels now. But we're not so sure hotels will be eager to accept them now. Remember, hotels do have a blacklist.
This lady has some balls. Princess Maha al-Sudairi, the wife of Saudi Arabia's Interior Minister, charged nearly $24 million dollars at Paris' luxury fashion houses over a year-long period but decided not to pay up and then claimed diplomatic immunity from inside her suite at the Four Seasons George V hotel.
Why the Four Seasons? Well, it's partly owned by her nephew, Prince Al Waleed bin Talal, so she's sure to get a good Friends and Family discount on that $4,000 a night rate.
But seeking refuge in a family-owned hotel still could not prevent a court bailiff from showing up and threatening to seize her things. According to the BBC, a check was promptly made out for $125,000 to a clothing chain Key Largo after the bailiff arrived. Yet the Princess still has a lot more moolah to dole out. Including debts owed to the swank Hotel Crillon. We're guessing Parisian hotels now have her name on their black list.
[UPDATE: Andy Dick most definitely is on the hotel's blacklist if this report is true.]
TMZ is reporting that the new mama was thrown out of the hotel after fighting with another chick in the valet line on Saturday night/early Sunday at 1am. The fight was apparently so out of control that security had to be called in to escort her out.
While, we would love to believe Nicole still had some bad-ass in her, TMZ's report is hard to verify. Hard Rock would not comment and Nicole's rep issued this statement to TMZ:
Nicole's rep sent us this statement: "She was in Vegas but there wasn't an altercation of any kind involving her."
That statement sounds a little vague but we'll go ahead and assume that Nicole Richie is probably still welcome at the Hard Rock in the future.

Tsk, tsk, Jesse Metcalfe. We had such high hopes for you gardener boy but it looks like you were unable to parlay your on-screen bare chest appearances into anything worthwhile after Desperate Housewives.
Nowadays, about the only thing that's keeping Jesse Metcalfe in the news is his bad hotel behavior. Previously he reportedly blacklisted from the Mondrian West Hollywood.

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.

Yes, it is true, this is not an April Fools' Day joke, we reserved a room tonight for the Greenwich Hotel opening, via the Greenwich Hotel website and though our reservation went through last week, late yesterday we received word that our reservation had been canceled at the request of the hotel. A phone call to the hotel's PR reps and the hotel itself confirmed that they were not going to let us sleep there tonight.
As loyal readers know we have been following the opening of the DeNiro/Drukier hotel project since the middle of 2004. We followed the constantly "coming soon" North Moore Street hotel through loud construction, name changes, name calling, and endless delays. So it should come as no surprise that today, the hotel's first day accepting guests, we had a reservation to stay at the hotel.
Many times you readers send us first photos and reviews, which we love. But other times a hotel is woven so deep into our sites fabric -- like when Gramercy Park opened, or back when Wynn Las Vegas opened, we decide to go to the public opening ourselves. We are, after all, hotel geeks. In these cases we simply use our credit card to book a room at the buzzworthy hotel and reviewed it as soon as we can for you, just like our readers and tipsters do for us.
South by Southwest (SXSW), the annual music and film festival in Austin, Texas concluded its run yesterday and predictably, we have some hotel scene reports.
Ryan at the Synthesis blog stayed at the Four Seasons hotel and said his room smelled like something interesting by the end of the trip. He also said the hotel charged him for something he didn't get. On the bright side? He saw Ice Cube in the hotel lobby and the veggie burger is delicious although $22.
Update: We got word that the Driskill Hotel have confirmed – categorically – that the Perez Hilton report is untrue.
Furthermore, Mr. Morrison's representatives added this concerning the Perez Hilton report:
Mr. Morrison has not been banned from this or any other hotel.
John Spomer, Vice President & Managing Director of the Driskill Hotel, has issued the following statement. "Throughout his stay, Mr. Morrison, as well as members of his party, treated our staff with the utmost professional courtesy and respect. We look forward to the opportunity of hosting him again in the future."
Got any more hotel party reports from SXSW? Let us know.

Finally, some hotels are taking back the night against puking partying Spring Breakers this year.
The Sheraton Grand Bahama Island Hotel has issued this edict:
For the second year in a row, The Sheraton Grand Bahama Island is saying no to spring breakers and making it easy for families to enjoy a seasonal getaway. The resort is not accepting reservations from individuals or groups under the age of 21 for travel between February 25th and March 31st, 2008.
Not quite sure how the hotel is going to enforce this rule but we bet they will be IDing heavily at this property.
Meanwhile, families are welcome to stay here. The hotel was voted the #3 Kid-Friendly resort in the Caribbean by Child mag back in 2005 and is offering two family-friendly options.
The Sunny Savings package offers rooms for $220 a night and includes daily breakfast and complimentary access to Camp Lucaya kids club. (Use Code: SUNNY.)
The all-inclusive Reef Package is $295 a couple and includes all taxes, service charges, resort fees,"non-motorized" watersports (snorkeling, etc.) and food and drink choice at one of three on-property restaurants (Use Code: AIPKG08.)
Also this resort is connected to the Westin and there are some exchange privileges between the resorts but we don't know if that "No Spring Breakers" applies to the Westin as well.
