this book takes you back to another time when hotels were worlds unto themselves and provided for guests -and employees - every need. Bemelmans writes in a charming fashion and has some extraordinary tales about the life he lived while working at a famous hotel in the old days. It isn't fast moving or mysterious but a look back at a gentler more trusting time when people were free of all the regulations of present day.
