Celebrity Hotel Scandals

Mandarin Oriental, Miami

We all love a little celebrity gossip, and there seems to be a new scandal every day -- especially when stars go on vacation. It is often said that the better the hotel, the juicier the scandal. "Hotels unleash passions in people. You enter and leave your past behind," once explained hotelier Andre Balazs, who purchased the notorious Chateau Marmont in 1990 (see #7). "That is why an inordinate number of affairs and scandals unfold in hotels." Get a load of these poolside canoodles, wiretapping escapes, and other celebrity hotel scandals.
