Hotel
by Arthur Hailey





5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed, insighful and still on target - 35 years later!, January 24, 2011
This review is from: 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.
