“Downton Abbey” and “sexy” are two things we’d not usually rub together, but turns out the idea does float other people’s boats, because a swingers’ do billed as “a sexy and erotic Downton Abbey” was all set to take over a historic country house hotel in Devon, Bovey Castle.
We say was, because Bovey Castle has just come under new management, and, having heard about the event, has immediately curtailed it prematurely.
According to (of course) the Daily Mail, the swingers had hired the castle for five days and nights of frolics next July, including activities like sexy golf, sexy tennis and sexy tours of Exeter, the neighboring and decidedly unsexy city. You will not be surprised to find that this was being done by a US-based company for American swingers, because surely only Americans could find Exeter or golf or cold country houses erotic.
100 swinger couples had booked all 64 rooms (guess they were planning to share?), but the hotel has recently been acquired by the Eden Hotel Collection, who have said:
We have taken the decision that the event in no way fits with the core values of our businesses and have taken immediate steps to cancel the booking.
Bovey Castle has always been a hugely popular destination for families and as the new custodians of the hotel we are very keen to maintain this and further enhance the experience for our customers.
Another day, another hotel welcome drink. A pineapple milkshake, since you ask – so far, so blah.
But wait, what’s that on the coaster? Ah yes:
ZERO TOLERANCE & SLEAZE FREE ZONE
NO SEX TOURISTS, JUNKIES, LOUTS & OTHER DEGENERATES
Of course, this isn’t the first time the Atlanta has warned you of its guest policy. “SEX TOURISTS NOT WELCOME,” shouts the homepage. “Visitors who object to any of The Atlanta's policies or who intend to spend their time in Thailand whoring, behaving badly, indulging in alcohol abuse and illicit drugs should stay elsewhere,” says the long caveat page. The message is repeated on the email confirming your reservation. And if you hadn’t got it by then, this is what greets you beside the front door:
It's time for a walk down memory lane with a HotelChatter flashback!
It's been just about five years since we released our The HotelChatter Guide to Great Hotel Sex, designed to help you make the most out of your hotel room during sexytime. And you know what? These tips are still going strong. Here are some that particularly, er, stick out for us:
1. There is nothing -- nothing -- more distracting than a headboard banging against a wall during sex. It's loud in your room, and it pisses off other guests -- thereby increasing the chances of a staffer knocking on the door and interrupting your exploits because of a neighboring guest's complaint. Headboards fastened securely to the walls like at Thompson LES (above) serve to best minimize (extra) noise.
A few outstanding features of the room include: red brick walls, chains next to the bed, concrete floors, and a possible two-way mirror.
BoingBoing reports that when the man called to complain, he was told by the Front Desk that they'd made a mistake and that, in fact, "no one was supposed to use that room." Suspicious!
Admittedly one of our favorite luxury hotel chains, The Langham is well-known for things like afternoon tea, pink taxis and a 19th century-inspired gin cocktail lounge. No surprise, then, that the Langham is exactly the kind of classy joint where Justin Bieber would want to have his first foursome.
The 18-year-old pop star was staying in London this week gearing up for his big UK tour, and he certainly kept busy "getting to know" his British fanbase. The Daily Mail caught photos of Bieber in and out of several nightclubs around London on Tuesday night, before finally ending up back at the Langham London with his new lady friend, Ella-Paige Roberts Clark.
A few minutes later, though, two other girls from the same club showed up at the hotel and were admitted up to his room.
You could argue that the girls were only after a quick nightcap in the hotel bar, or maybe they needed to use the bathroom, and they just happened to stop in the same hotel where the Biebs was staying. Except no, they weren't. Photographers also snapped one of them leaving the Langham the next morning, dressed in the same clothes, just a few minutes after Justin left the hotel himself. Busted!

SuperClubs has removed the clothing-optional, adults-only Hedonism II Jamaican resort from its dossier of all-inclusive properties. This comes after it unloaded unprofitable sister resort Hedonism III in 2011 and in earlier 2012 sold Breezes Trelawny to a Canadian tour company called Sunwing. Breezes Montego Bay was also let go in 2009.
The company recently announced that the sale of the Negril hotel has finally been completed to an investment group named Marshmallow Ltd., headed by financier Harry Lange, and made up of partners Jon Gross of UnWind Travel (aka Fluffernutters), some of SuperClubs' own chairman's family members, and Kevin Levee, the hotel's current general manager.
The sale will not change Hedonism’s name, however, a $10 million room renovation is planned, which will certainly be welcome for the 30-year old hotel.
More importantly, what will remain the same will be the resort’s day-to-day operations, which include saucy, devil-may-care fun that its patrons, often repeat guests, relish.

Here's a tip for anyone looking to spend their honeymoon in gorgeous, sunny Taos: El Monte Sagrado, New Mexico's sole Autograph Collection property, offers a luxury suite known as the Kama Sutra suite. And boy, will it put you in the mood for love.
We toured the whole property recently, but particularly liked our precious few moments spent exploring the warmly-lit, sensuous space at the far end of the resort. Featuring a king bed with an elaborate hand-carved wooden frame, plus plenty of curved walls and enlarged wooden beams reaching up vertically, the suite is pure sex.

Oh man, Taylor Swift and her new boy band-er beau Harry Styles are, like, sooo busted. The pair were reportedly hanging out in NYC on Monday night—you know, just doing regular kid stuff like singing karaoke at Hudson Hotel. By 4am, the pair still weren't ready to call it a night, so one thing led to another, and soon they were back at Taylor's suite at the Greenwich Hotel.
What happened after that, we'll leave up to your imagination. But we're willing to bet it didn't involve more karaoke.
The next morning, paparazzi caught each of them leaving the hotel at separate times. Ah, the classic walk of shame, just like we used to do in college, except with dorms instead of expensive hotels. And nobody cared about taking our picture. Phew!

If you’re like us, you are completely addicted to Shonda Rhimes’ heart-stopping political drama, “Scandal”, which takes place in Washington, D.C. The gripping series is about a president torn in more ways than we can count (watch and see!).
We figure on this Election Day, if you have to wait in line to vote for the next president, and while we all wait for the results, we'll entertain you with a few famous D.C. hotels that have been the location of a juicy scandal or two.
The hit television show's fictitious president Fitzgerald Grant seems to prefer his dalliances and dirt to occur in the White House and sometimes even in broad daylight! We think Rhimes should take some clues to these real-life political dramas and give us some hotel highlights to look forward to on Thursday nights!

Just one day after multiple sources say they caught Rihanna and Chris Brown canoodling at Meatpacking District nightclub Griffin, the troubled pair seem to have elevated their relationship status from "it's complicated" to "we're sharing a hotel suite."
On Tuesday evening, photographers caught Brown sheepishly exiting the Gansevoort Park Avenue, which, as we know, is where Rihanna likes to stay whenever she's in NYC. While not exactly the most luxurious digs in the city, those dark interiors make it easy to sneak around unnoticed.
Or at least, that's probably what Chris Brown was hoping...

Working in a hotel must be tough. Between the constant upkeep of rooms, the late hours, the cranky guests, we imagine most hotel staffers are always on the verge of snapping. Come to think of it, they probably could benefit from a little venting once in a while...
Well, that's exactly what happened in an online discussion thread asking hotel employees to share secrets they normally keep from guests. Started just yesterday, the thread has already accumulated over 5,000 responses, which are alternately helpful, hilarious, and gross—many of them relate specifically to misplaced bodily fluids (yuck).
If you're brave enough to read them, you might wind up with a whole new, slightly paranoid, outlook on life in a hotel room. Here are a few of our favorites...
According to a new law passed in Australia last month, hotels no longer have the right to turn away sex workers who bring clients back to their hotel rooms. While we're still not sure exactly where we fall on the issue (a person's gotta make a living, right?), what we can tell you is Aussie hotels are not happy about this.
The discussion started after a sex worker in Moranbah got banned from a motel once they figured out her line of work. She fought the case and lost. Then, she appealed and won, on the grounds that "a bed is also hotel property, same as a telephone or internet used by customers for their business."
