If you have ever worked in a hotel, this book is very amusing. If you have never worked in a hotel, you are not going to believe some of these stories. As I have worked in hotels for over ten years, ranging from ghetto-located Best Westerns to the beautiful, historic, Highlands Inn, I can attest that most of these stories are true!

An enjoyable read about 24 hours in a posh hotel, and the hi-jinks that both the staff and the guests get up to.

This was an enjoyable read. Fast paced and interesting, well written, I wished it had covered more than just 1 day in this hotel.

This is a fun read, written in a chatty breezy manner, and provides many interesting, helpful insights into the inner workings of an upscale hotel. Quite engrossing, actually. Perfect for bedtime reading.
I had no idea how high the markups were on hotel food and drinks, or how to prevent being "bumped" due the hotel practice of overbooking.
The BBC has made a 3 season series of the book, which I also enjoyed.

Amusing collection of oddities from a fictional 5-star hotel in London. The vignettes are set up to cover a single 24-hour period, with each one assigned to an hour. The tales are allegedly true, gathered from multiple hotels. Now and then a bit of inside-information about the hospitality industry sneaks in.
