Now, isn't this interesting? We learned from Lindsay Lohan's new reality show, "Lindsay" on the OWN Network, that the troubled star was actually living at the Soho Grand last fall for nearly two months before she was finally allowed to lease the apartment she wanted.
See, what makes this interesting is that we have Soho Grand at the very top of our list of hotels where Lohan isn't welcome. Back in 2007, Lohan had a drunken outburst that ended in her being carried back up to her room and then eventually escorted out of the hotel.
Granted, we published that story before Soho Grand took her in so somewhere over the course of the next few months, Soho Grand had a change of heart. (We suspect more likely the OWN production company convinced the hotel to take her in and showed them the green too.)
But throughout last night's episode, Lohan kept talking about how hotels remind her of her old lifestyle and bad habits and so she was desperate to get out of the hotel. (In a previous episode, before moving to a new room, her personal assistant had to make sure the minibar was empty.)

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!

All looks quiet...for now.
We're still not quite sure how Lindsay Lohan, arguably one of the worst celebrity hotel guests EVER, still manages to find a luxury hotel in Los Angeles wiling to take her in, even after being blacklisted by Chateau Marmont and turned down by two Santa Monica hotels.
LiLo and DiLo were turned away from TWO famous hotels in Santa Monica late last night (we heard Shutters and Loews)... after they arrived in L.A. for Lindsay's court hearing.
But the search continued ... and the Lohan ladies were finally able to find a suite in the Hills of Beverly ... at the same hotel where Howard Hughes lived on and off for 30 years.
TMZ even has a pic of Dina posing in front of the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel sign. Subtle! We have no idea who is footing the $1,000+ night room rate at the hotel but maybe "Liz and Dick" did better than we had previously thought.
We just hope the Lohans can complete their stay at the BHH without incident, especially since the hotel just completed a major renovation! But if the hotel finds damage to the tune of $50,000 in cigarette burns, well, we might just have to say we told you so.

It's a wonder she gets a hotel in any city at this point given that trouble seems to "follow" Lindsay Lohan wherever she goes!
She did win our award for the "Biggest Celebrity Performance in 2012" and, by the looks of it, she is campaigning for a repeat title in 2013.
This time it involves copious amounts of cigarette burns totally nearly $50,000 of damage. Well, slap your momma! What in fresh hell is going on, here?

It's that time of year again: the 2012 HotelChatter Awards! Today and Monday, we'll be showcasing the best (and worst) of hotels over the past year. But we couldn't do it without you! Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, or shoot us an email. And the Award goes to...
Some would say “performance” is a euphemism for “acting out”. We’ll go with either of these defintions, because it doesn’t matter really—girl Lindsay Lohan has been doing all that and then some.
The acts of cray-cray have been numerous this year, from racking up a ridonkulous $46K bill at LA’s Chateau Marmont, the hit and run pandemonium of the Porsche variety outside NYC’s Dream Downtown, and then there was that abuse incident with not-so-BFF congressional aide Christian LaBella at the W Union Square, which involved a physical altercation between the pair and a pulling of a fire alarm. Mercy! And these were just acts that involved hotels! There's a laundry list of more mayhem we're too tired to get into.

Even though its winter, you can still take advantage of the relatively drama-free weather on the Left Coast where the rooftop shenanigans live-on. Remember, these haunts are available year-round and come with a side of schwanky--hold the frostbite. So grab your date and enjoy these rooftop destinations for your next romantic romp west of the Mississippi.
Suite 700, Hotel Shangri La, Santa Monica, CA
Hotel Shangri-La Santa Monica's Suite 700 open-air bar & lounge is the epitome of swank with its Art Deco Hollywood glamour combined with epic views of the Pacific sunset. It's no wonder the hotel was named after the earthly paradise James Hilton spoke of in Lost Horizon. Treat your date to a fire pit and some popcorn chicken avec cocktail, and get lost watching the flames. Or watch the killer sunsets. The nice thing about Shangri-La is you can stay indoors in the lounge if it's breezy, or venture onto the rooftop, so its the best of both. Weekends can be crowded, so try a weeknight or just come early if you want some elbow room.

10 days. That's all that's passed since the last Lindsay Lohan NYC hotel debacle. Now, as much as we have been clowning our girl hard on her antics, this might be one incident in her favor.
According to various reports including The New York Daily News, Lohan was hanging out on September 30th at 1 Oak, a nightclub in Chelsea. Apparently she was with a 25-year old congressional aide named Christian LaBella. Somewhere between the nightclub and returning to Lohan's digs for the night, a $500-a-night suite at the W New York Union Square, things got ugly. Lohan accused LaBella of taking photos of her with his cellphone and emailing them around, which he has denied. A ruckus ensued, and Lohan claims LaBella tried to choke her and she had to hide in her suite's bathroom for safety. She filed charges and LaBella counter filed his own.
However, it all seems to have blown over quickly as police say charges against LaBella have been dropped, even though according to Lohan's mother Dina, who told the New York Daily News Sunday afternoon, “She’s very shaken up.” and “Thank God he didn’t have a weapon.”

Last month, we told you about an incident that happened outside of The Mercer, involving a red Ferrari supposedly running over the foot of an NYPD officer. The whole bizarre episode was caught on video and made the rounds on YouTube, and then we thought we were done. But no!
For the latest installment of over-dramatized, minor car accidents causing scenes outside of trendy Manhattan hotels, we turn to Lindsay Lohan, who got arrested last night after hitting a guy with her Porsche in front of the Dream Downtown.
But as we were reading through the list of room service, minibar and cigarette charges, we did wonder how this notoriously private hotel--they won't allow any publication to take pictures inside the hotel ever--let this happen. We assumed maybe the hotel was finally fed up with Lohan and leaked the documents to embarrass her.
We also considered the more likely possibility that TMZ greased someone who works in the hotel's back office. But according to the Daily Mail, the hotel (which is owned and run by hotelier Andre Balazs) is absolutely horrified the letters were released and they actually blame someone in Lohan's entourage.
We've long wondered how Lindsay Lohan has managed to fund her lengthy and frequent hotel stays, given that her finances are in dire straits. But eventually we just assumed that either the hotel was doing it for the publicity or that Lohan had managed to butter up the hotelier (see Vikram Chatwal).
Yet apparently, the Chateau Marmont is through playing the victim.
TMZ has posted a copy of the letter that the exclusive hotel's general manager Philip Pavel sent to the actress after she's failed to pay her $46,000 hotel bill.
As you are aware from our previous correspondences starting on July 8, you currently owe the hotel a grand total of $46,350.04 in charges for your stay starting on May 30, 2012.
As we have made repeated attempts to resolve this pressing matter over the last few weeks without any resolution, I regret to inform you that we will no longer be able to extend any further credit for you to remain in the hotel.
Please have all your belongings removed from Suite 33 by 12pm, Wednesday, August 1, 2012. Furthermore, until we get the matter of your outstanding debt paid, know that we will be unable to host you on the property or the restaurant.
AMAZING. And it gets better. There's an ITEMIZED COPY OF THE BILL.

Troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan is working hard (again) to redeem herself in the eyes of the general public. After pal-ing around with Lady Gaga on Twitter and wrapping a Liz Taylor biopic, Lohan took to the pool at the luxe Hotel Bel-Air yesterday to show off her bod in a white one-piece suit with a plunging sheer cleavage cutout.
Despite the totally staged photos that captured some questionable bruises and a pink pen stain on her legs, Lohan is indeed looking better than she has in a long time. Her time at the pool seemed pretty uneventful as well. There was nary a cigarette butt or a Red Bull vodka in sight! Instead, Lohan flipped through the pages of an O magazine before dipping her toes ever so daintily into the water.
Even if Lohan is back on track, we doubt she has the cash flow to cover the $500+ room rate at the hotel. But there is a way to enjoy the hotel's pool area without staying the night--For the first time ever, the hotel has opened the pool to its La Prairie spa guests.
The other day when we told you how Lindsay Lohan has reportedly banned herself from the The Standard Hotel in West Hollywood, we just thought it would be a funny celebrity scoop to break up an annoying Monday.
But one of the best comments ever came out of this post.
Mark Hooper gives the Standard a genius way of turning Lohan's blacklist in their favor:
So, this is a GOLDEN marketing opportunity for The Standard. Don't just ignore this "blacklisting," embrace it!!! How about a huge billboard on Sunset or some notable location, saying something like:
"Smoke and Mirrors is in the black (and patrons can drink our cocktails, rather than wear them)!"
"Smoke and Mirrors - new and improved (sans Lohan)!!!"
"Smoke and Mirrors is new and improved! Come hang out with stable celebrities!!!"
"Smoke and Mirrors - We've purged the bad kharma!"
I would take this latest publicity and BLOW IT UP with some over-the-top promotions. Now, is the perfect opportunity to turbo charge your brand, Standard Hotel.
