How much do you know about hotels?

Many stories are told about hotels.

From small daily routine’s anecdotes to those unexpected and epic adventures that make hotel business something unique, it is true that especially from the end of the XIXth century Hotels have been places where many important moments of World History took place.

Did you know, for example, that the Palace Hotel in Madrid was used as a Military Hospital during the Civil War that took place in Spain between 1936 and 1939? Or that the spectacular Baccarat 16,309-crystal chandelier in the Negresco’s Salon Royal was originally supposed to be delivered to Czar Nicholas II? Why there are so many hotels in the world whom their names start or contain “Ritz”?

There is a very interesting web page, called Famous Hotels, in which you can find many articles about different hotels, as well as a book section with available previews, and also a funny quiz. You may try to break your head to find the answer to some of the questions, and maybe you will be surprised because the answer is not as easy as it seem to be.

Hotel’s History is full of crazy anecdotes and simple coincidences. How much do you know about it?
