According to TMZ, the story goes a little something like this. A German tabloid YAWN reports a maid from the Meliá Düsseldorf claims to have been fired for politely knocking on the room door and asking the pop-star for an autograph.
"Jenny From the Block" struck back against the news by taking to Twitter as pop-stars do defending her reputation and crying foul. "C'mon thought you knew me better than this.. Would never get anyone fired over an autograph. 1st I heard of this was on twitter. #hurtful". Yet, Lopez' camp confirms an 'incident' involving a maid. So here we go, another somebody done somebody wrong song.
Popped into our Hotelchatter Flickr Pool recently (thanks, jochenb) were some pics of a new hotel in the Sol Melia Hotel group: the Melia Hotel Düsseldorf, Germany. It's just opened up last month and is certainly lookin' neat and tidy, if the photos are anything to go by.
More info about the new Melia: it's right in the center of Düsseldorf, and it's opposite the Hofgarten, famous for being the oldest public park in the whole of Germany. And it's close to shopping and sightseeing districts, and most conveniently, just a ten-minute drive from the airport.
The Düsseldorf Melia has some opening offer rates starting with their basic double room at €99 ($145) or €139 ($205) with breakfast – that does sound like a lot more for a morning meal, but German breakfasts can be quite lavish affairs (we're not guaranteeing anything here though).
