Open Hotel Stories and you will be transported to the most talked about haunts across the globe: Greta Garbo was "born" in a Berlin palace; "James Bond" was created in a house in Jamaica; Al Capone lived his last days in a hotel in Miami; Frida Kahlo escaped with Leon Trotsky to a hacienda in the Mexican countryside. Throughout the world, mansions, domains, palaces, and haciendas: today these places have been transformed into hotels, where magic and mystery floats in the air. Stories of incredible adventures, unsolved mysteries, political intrigues, film shoots and illicit liaisons from Rome to Hong Kong, Nairobi, Chile and Mexico are collected in this colorful book. See these famous spots as they were yesterday and as they are today along with beautiful shots of the celebrities who put these places on the map. Travel the world from your couch, or use the detailed hotel information provided to go see the rooms for yourself. Either way, Hotel Stories is a trip you will never forget.
Born in Chile, Fracisca Matteoli spent her childhood in Latin America. Today, from her Paris home, she writes travel books and contributes to National Geographic and Conde Nast Traveler.
