Beschreibung

The styles of architecture and decor have varied enormously for grand hotels: Art Deco for Oliver Hill's seaside Midland Grand at Morecambe in England; the French Renaissance chateau manner for the Canadian Pacific railroad in the 1880s; and a Moorish-style confection for the Tampa Bay on Florida's Gulf Coast. The services available were equally stunning: Turkish baths, rifle ranges, a rooftop cycle track, and even a fleet of vintage Rolls-Royces at Hong Kong's Peninsula. To keep this illusory world glittering, the reality behind it had to run like clockwork, with managers like Cesar Ritz, king of hoteliers, monitoring every detail from ballrooms to basement boilers. "Grand Hotels" explores every aspect of this all-but-vanished world of opulence, from entrepreneurs, architects and designers who made it possible to the ambitious individuals and dynasties that sustained it.
