When George Washington embarked on his presidential tours of 1789-91, the rudimentary inns and taverns of the day suddenly seemed dismally inadequate. But within a decade, Americans had built the first hotels - large and elegant structures that boasted private bedchambers and grand public ballrooms. This book recounts the enthralling history of the hotel in America - a saga in which politicians and prostitutes, tourists and tramps, conventioneers and confidence men, celebrities and salesmen all rub elbows. "Hotel" explores why the hotel was invented, how its architecture developed, and the many ways it influenced the course of United States history. The volume also presents a beautiful collection of more than 120 illustrations, many in full colour, of hotel life in every era." Hotel" explores these topics and more: what it was like to sleep, eat, and socialize at a hotel in the mid-1800s; how hotelkeepers dealt with the illicit activities of adulterers, thieves, and violent guests; the stories behind America's greatest hotels, including the Waldorf-Astoria, the Plaza, the Willard, the Blackstone, and the Fairmont; why Confederate spies plotted to burn down thirteen hotels in New York City during the Civil War; how the development of steamboats and locomotives helped create a nationwide network of hotels; how hotels became architectural models for apartment buildings; and, the pivotal role of hotels in the civil rights movement.

First published in 1980, and reminiscent of Loft's earlier trilogy of 'House' novels, 'A Wayside Tavern' tells, in a series of dramatic incidents, the story of a Suffolk Public House (The One Bull) from the end of the Roman occupation of Britain, until the present day. A Roman veteran, crippled and left behind, worshiped a Briton called Mithras, so the place became known as the One Bull and down through the centuries it accommodated itself to changing times and became a clearing house for contraband, a miniature Hell Fire Club, a fashionable hotel, and lastly, a typical nineteen-seventies middle-class Sufolk country pub. The connection through the years of the tavern to the little church that sits behind it is fascinating. Yet by the end of the story, the little church hasn't been used in years and no one knows why it was built so close to the tavern. Also similar to "I am England" in its conception, but instead of the focus being on the landscape, the focus is on how the inn evolves and changes with each succession of inhabitants and the stories of generations of the inn owners. There are some touching romances, monks, a martyred Anglo Saxon king, Danes, the plague of 1348, the coming of the Reformation and so on. Norah Lofts remains one of Britain's favourite authors because she doesn't soften the harsh realities of life, nor does she change history in order to be politically correct. Her characters seem as real as people in our own lives with all their faults and quirks. Sex is always dealt with in a matter-of-fact manner in her stories; an essential part of life, and well described. If you've never read a Norah Lofts book, this is a fine fast-paced one to begin with.

...We went to this hotel for just a weekend away. The hotel lies at a busy road called Kennington road. The location was quiet good with a bus stop nearby but also the metro station of Lambeth North is within walking distance. The hotel is south of the Thames river and a bit far away from the centre so we had to use the metro a lot.
The hotel was easy enough found and when you walk into the hotel...

As a congratulations on your new job present, I got my partner tickets to see "Noise Off" in London. We didn't want to rush back home when it ended, so decided we would get a hotel. Looking for affordable, yet half way decent hotels in London can be tricky. We stumbled across the Days Inn, whilst browsing trivago. We were familiar with the company, as we've stayed in their...
