Great book. You think living in a hotel would be great. Having your sheets and towels changed everyday, dining in any of the restaurants, having magazines and books from the newstand sent up to your room to read, in house dry cleaning etc. It was great but you do miss out on normal things. A great look at the 1930s and 40s.
I don't know if I ever discovered a point to this book other than growing up in a hotel - yet this was a very fun and funny read! The author paints a vivid picture of his boyhood adventures and the people he encountered. If anything, I wish the book had included more!
