    Talented people with great style and taste and organize the very best hotels that can meet the most demanding taste with their exquisite features. I am not surprised that the actors mentioned in this article own the best hotels. I didn’t expect from them anything else, but great taste and highly met expectations of their visitors. I wished I were able to stay in one of these hotels. Still, I bet too expensive for me.

    Hmm, having a hotel of your own that sounds cool, I remember a long time ago it was in vogue to have a restaurant of your own, and I heard that Sting with Sylvester Stallone have one of the most expensive and at the same time tastiest places in the entire world, but I never heard of celebrities having their own hotels, hmm, busted while lying, I remember a few years ago I was in Turkey and visited a hotel owned by Mariah Carey and Richard Gere, the name of the hotel was “Granada Luxury and Spa”, well I am not sure whether it was their hotel for sure, or it was just a simple rumor, but I do know for sure that I have really enjoyed the atmosphere in it, as it was built looking same as the Titanic looked from inside. It was captivating to feel myself a part of it.

    I think most of all I would love to visit Hugh Jackman’s hotel, mm not that the other hotels look not that good to me, but it is because all ever since I saw Hugh in the first movie, I realized that I just love him, he looks awesome, and his smile is able to declare war, as well as make piece in the entire world, what can be possibly better than a handsome guy with a charismatic smile?
