Acerca de


In Hotel Reservations Derek Picot, General Manager of a prestigious West End hotel, takes us behind the revolving doors to discover some of the very best hospitality horrors and secrets gleaned from hotels around the world. 'Having spent much of my life in international hotels of every syle along the 'Whicker's World' flightpath, it's fascination to get the view from the other side of the reception desk in these entertaining anecdotes. - Alan Whicker

From Publishers Weekly:

For lovers of British wit, this anecdotal tell-all is mildly entertaining. Picot, a seasoned hotel manager, has collected humorous stories from hostelries across Europe and the Far East and smoothly strung them together in all too predictable categories: We have unrecognized VIPs?the Duke of Edinburgh himself behind the wheel, or Springsteen, unrecognized by a London chef, avoiding fans by exiting through the kitchen. Then there are the instances of guests and personnel caught in various states of undress. New employees don't realize that a screwdriver is a beverage and deliver a tool to a guest. Some of the more exotic settings produce the more amusing events: When a traveler in Jaipur, India, called the hotel's front desk to report that he was sharing his room with a rodent (one hurriedly absconding with his American Express Gold Card, no less), the confused reply was: "Very well, sir, but I must inform you that there will be a double charge for the double occupying of the room, sir."
