Famous Couples and Hotels They Love

People love a good romance, especially when it is inspired by Hollywood.  Sometimes the love story is real and sometimes it is simply fiction that people wish was real.  Whatever the case, it seems to always capture peoples attention and create a rather large number of fans.  Let's look at a few hot affairs of the heart that made some hotels happy to be in the center of it all.  

The Heathman Hotel Portland
The Heathman Suite View
The Heathman Hotel in Portland Oregon has a number of impressive travel awards, and continually impresses guests with luxury and service.  However recently this prestigious hotel has gotten some pretty great PR that has nothing to do with it's amazing amenities.  The best selling trilogy "Fifty Shades of Grey" has captivated the adult novel market and quickly become a must read for many women.  In this thrilling novel The Heathman Hotel makes a few appearances, 16 in total, that has caused a surge in reservations.  This posh hotel has even taken the craze and added guest packages for people looking for a similar experience.  If you are heading to the Portland area or happened to love the liaison between the book characters, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, check-in at The Heathman Hotel for a truly delightful stay.  

Ritz-Carlton Montreal
The next great hotel, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal, has a romantic past that is not based on fiction.  This lush hotel was able to host the first wedding of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, back in 1964.  Although they were only given 2 hours notice according to the hotel, the stunning establishment was able to pull everything together for a small but fabulous wedding.  The couple chose the elaborate 12-room Royal Suite that is over 4,700 square feet in size for both the ceremony and their wedding night.  This stunning suite is still amazing with its abundant original artwork and antiques that are used to furnish the room.  A stay in the room would be very romantic, however if you require something a bit smaller in scale don't fret, the hotel has several other rooms and suites available.

Fairmont Banff Springs
Our last love linked hotel is the beautiful Fairmont Banff Springs located in Canada.  This very lucky hotel was visited on more then one occasion by the sultry Marilyn Monroe, however one visit was more memorable than the rest.  Back in August of 1953, Monroe stayed here while she was filming "The River of No Return".  During her stay she was visited by her boyfriend at the time, ex-Yankee star Joe DiMaggio.  Although DiMaggio was known to dislike the public media attention, he was actually caught on camera with Monroe for one of the few pictures of them together.  Although their romance was short lived, there is no doubt that a beautiful movie star dating a famous baseball player garners attention not only then but also today.  Stay at this stunning hotel where the phenomenal service, gorgeous decor and astonishing comforts might just make you fell like a superstar.

Spring is here and love is in the air.  If you are ready to head out to see a few places that have inspired passion in the past, we are ready to assist you.  Stay at a place where you will discover intrigue and relish the beauty of your surroundings while at the same time receiving perks that are complimentary and exclusive to WhatAHotel! customers.  Let WhatAHotel! help you find the perfect hotel to experience enchantment.
