Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

"Predictable" and "formulaic" aptly describe this Arthur Hailey novel, which follow a cast of characters whose loves and lives converge at the luxurious St. Gregory Hotel in New Orleans. Yet through skillful abridgment and Victor Garber's ability to depict characters with various accents, this fast-paced audiobook is quite enjoyable. It would make great listening for a long trip.

Wow! I was not expecting this book to be so rich in detail, context, theme and character development. On one level it's just a very descriptive outline of 5 days in the life of a luxury hotel in New Orleans in the early 1960s. Hotel also takes a critical stance in the civil rights issues of the era. Through carefully crafted characters, it comes out pro-desegregation but does it without wielding a heavy hand. Then at the individual characters and vignettes, the book is about karma and how little decissions can add up to either good things happening or extremely bad things happening.

This is Arthur Hailey at the top of his form. I have never read a book that was so engrossing with characters with such great development. The plot never stops going, right until the very end. The plot twists were ones I never thought of. I love this book!

I was attracted to this book after I seeing it on the shelf (while looking for Alex Haley's "Roots") and reading the forward. The development of the intertwining plots held me for the length of the book and reading the last 30 pages left me with a feeling of a job well done (both for me and the author).

in the operation of a hotel in trouble & the lives of people who work there. It makes fascinating reading, even though by the end of it you wonder if any hotel could really face so many major problems all at once. It's simple really, if you enjoy reading, you'll enjoy this book.

I did read this book 15 years ago, as a high school teenager, in a different language. Being now a hotel manager I really can see that some things ouf of this book I have used in practice. Mr. Hailey is a great author, who brings you into various work environmnents, to let you know how things work. wheels, airport, or money are all close together in the story, but miles away from each other in the real work enviromnents.

Hotel
By Arthur Hailey

In 1965, author Arthur Hailey wrote one of his best-known novels, HOTEL . This story was deep in detail, background, theme and character development. It offers reasonably accurate insights over a 5-day period in the life of an early 1960s independent, upscale hotel in New Orleans that is facing many challenges. The book addresses a number of American civil rights issues of the period, as well as contradicting stories of staff loyalty on one hand and dishonesty on the other. It tackles a number of business issues that remain current today, as well the matter of brand expansion in today's hotels versus operating as an independent.

One great thing about Hailey's writing style is that it keeps you engaged throughout the book. You'll never feel bored at any instance. His research is awesome. 'Hotel' is one such book. Got this immediately after I read 'Airport'. 'Hotel' was an impulsive page turner packed with surprises right from beginning to the end. Just go for it!
