Mrs. Limestone dropped this photo of a room at the Waldorf Hilton in London into the HotelChatter Flickr Pool describing it as "small but nicely done." Indeedy that looks pretty cramped but we are liking the interesting light fixture. Still you don't get much room for your money. Rates start at around $465.

In Bill Marriott's weekly blog/letter taken by his secretary, he reminisces about his days as a Boy Scout and even includes a snapshot of him as a youngster proudly sporting his uniform and a gelled up 'do.
You know, back then, over sixty years ago, scouting was different from what it is today. I was a city kid and I was working on my merit badges and I had no place to camp out. So, to get camping merit badge, I had to sleep out 50 nights.
Where was I going to do that?
Well, my folks helped me buy a tent and I put it in the backyard and out of my fifty nights, I think forty of them were backyard nights. But I slept out and I was able to qualify for that merit badge.
Now that he's all grown up, Bill has created Camp Marriott in Virginia where Boy Scouts can go to work on earning their merit badges. And while being a Scout won't get you a job, it will probably help.*

[UPDATE: It was only open for two months but CatHouse is already undergoing renovations for structural damage. We'll keep you posted on the reopening date.]
A handful of other celebs did make it to the opening like Tommy Lee, Jack and Kelly Osbourne, Carrot Top as well as CatHouse celeb chef Kerry Simon and his Australian partners, Billy Cross and Mick Doohan, a five-time world Formula One motorcycle racing champion. So needless to say there were a lot of Aussies and gearheads in the place.

When will we stop being obsessed with celebrities? The answer? Probably never. There is just so much good shizz going on right now. And fortunately for us, celebs keep acting out in hotels. So here's a healthy dose of who did what where when and why. Well, maybe not why. Celebrities are all pretty crazy.
· Pamela Anderson: The Baywatch babe is way past her prime but she's still hosting the New Years Eve party at PURE at Caesars. She will probably celebrate her recent divorce party there too. Or not. Or yes. No, not. Hmm...we'll have to wait and see.
No, that's not the Viceroy Santa Monica up for sale on the MLS website. It's actually Paris Hilton's home in the Hollywood Hills that she's reportedly selling. But her backyard pool furniture looks almost the same as the Viceroy's.
It's really no surprise that the Hilton sisters are big fans of Kor Hotels' famed designer Kelly Wearstler--remember how Nicky Hilton wanted her Nicky O Hotels to look like Wearstler designs? It's a good thing Nicky O didn't pan out, we wouldn't want Wearstler's decor to get dragged down in that mess.

Page Six's top gossip story for today is how Paris Hilton's father, Rick, has been going about planning her post-jail celebration party and he's got his eyes set on Vegas.
The paper reports that Rick has already hit up Pure at Caesar's Palace and the Hard Rock but they weren't so interested. Who is interested is The Palms. From Page Six:
"[Rick] was originally asking for a $50,000 cash fee to be paid, as well as accommodations and flights," said our source. "Pure and Hard Rock said 'no' flat out, but George Maloof, who owns the Palms, didn't say yes or no. He's very good pals with Paris and is the one who once hooked her up with Britney Spears."
It makes sense the Palms would be the best host, especially after their "Free Paris" signs. (Even if they were just advertising free trips to Paris.)
But after all the hoopla with Paris being sent to jail, released, then put back in and with people claiming "the girl got too much attention" and "what is she famous for anyways" and "she's a bad role model for young girls", why would anyone want to pay Paris to show up at her own party? A release from jail party nonetheless. And it seems as if her dad has quite a stake in her fame, like maybe 10 percent? Shame on him.
So we'll blame Rick Hilton and the Maloof Brothers if the next generation of young girls turn out to be drunk-driving, extension-wearing, panty-dropping wannabe porn stars/ex-cons.
· Hilton's After Jail Party Plan [NY Post]
A while back a Christian group named The Resistance made national news when they announced that they would be holding celebrations on Paris Hilton's first night in jail at Hilton Hotels across the country.
TMZ camera's were on hand to catch what was supposed to be a riled-up group as they trashed Hilton memorabilia in celebration of a time they hope will allow the heiress some deep "self reflection." So, just what did our cameras catch? Nothing! In fact, our guy never even hit the record button. The gala was supposed to kickoff at 8:00 PM in a bar on the first floor of the hotel. Our camera guy was told to look for a guy with a "Pray for Paris" t-shirt on -- which would allegedly distinguish Mr. Mark Dice [The Resistance's leader] from the rest of expected crowd. Dice never rolled in!
Well, considering that the owner of the Beverly Hilton's son is friends with at least Nicky Hilton, this may not have been a very good venue for the party in the first place.

So many people are excited that celebutard Paris Hilton is going to jail this summer but no one is more excited than a Christian group, called "The Resistance" who will be holding parties at Hilton Hotels to celebrate Paris' stint in the slammer.
A nationwide Christian organization known as "The Resistance" -- who often slam pop culture icons for their behavior -- is throwing a party to celebrate Paris Hilton's 45-day jail sentence.
The Resistance, founded by author and radio host Mark Dice, is organizing parties in Hilton hotels across the country to celebrate what they are calling a great day in American pop culture.
The parties, which will no doubt be lame affairs compared to some of Paris Hilton's party spots (i.e. No grey goose and no blow), will be held at the restaurants in Hilton hotels around the country starting at 8pm the night Paris begins her sentence. Partygoers are urged to bring Paris Hilton merchandise like her books and perfumes, which will be smashed and thrown into the trash.
To us, this doesn't sound like good Christian behavior but we'll support anything that is holding events country-wide to dispose of the numerous copies of Confessions of an Heiress and bottles of the vomit-inducing Paris Hilton Perfume.

In a guerilla art campaign that lifted its major points from Banksy (the stealth replacement of a Paris Hilton object), artist Vinchen plied his trade at the Columbus, Ohio Hilton Hotel. He replaced a wall-mounted house ad with a more revealing image of the hotel heiress, in a mock ad that read: "For over 80 years, the Hilton name has been synonymous with elegance and class. A tradition that continues today."
Unfortunately, the artist Vinchen's website is down right now so you can't see the full NSFW version. But you know it doesn't involve underwear so draw your own conclusions. And a quick disclaimer: Hilton hotels has nothing to do with the Hilton sisters or their family these days.

Although with Paris Hilton looking like she raided the sale racks at Forever 21 and Elisha wearing the most hideous sweater/shawl/belt buckle we have ever seen, coupled with the fact that the place is still frequented by Fred Durst, we're not so sure these are the types of celebs we want to follow into Teddys.
