I’m living in a hotel at the moment. I know, get me. Who do I think I am, Coco Chanel? Notoriously, the fashion designer lived in her own private suite at the Ritz in Paris for 34 years; just imagine the minibar bill.
Of course, it’s not just Coco. Over the years, loads of other famous people have shacked up in hotels. The reclusive Howard Hughes stayed for over three decades in the Beverly Hills Hotel, preferring to stay indoors, watching movies completely starkers with a pink hotel napkin draped over his privates.
Closer to home, Peter Sellers put down roots at the Dorchester in London for years and who could ever forget Alan Partridge’s 183-day stay in the Linton Travel Tavern in Cambridgeshire?
