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.

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!

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.

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.

For fans of books and the tv show LOST on abc. This is a very vivid, amazing book. Hotel weaves many stories together with an ending that will knock your socks off. Like Airport(and many other Hailey books), the last hundred pages will have your heart racing and your blood pressure rising. GREAT 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.

This book will keep you on the edge of your seat. it was written in 1964 and has been reprinted several times over the years. it gets better as the years go by. Mystery, love, secrets, evil, kindness and a perfect story line keeps you reading it way into the night. This is the 3rd time I have purchased this book. this time I will NOT give it away .

arrived on time and in good used condition. I have not finished it, and since I read it many years ago, I only remember more about the movie. Since I am a N'Awlins (New Orleans) native, the story means a lot to me.
