Hotel Vendome by Danielle Steel

Danielle Steel’s dazzling new novel invites readers into the ultra-glamorous world of a five-star New York hotel, and brings to vivid life the man who builds it as his dream, the girl who grows up in its loving embrace, and the colorful guests and staff who make its magic complete.
The hotel was old, run-down. But to Swiss-born Hugues Martin, a young, ambitious hotelier trained in the most illustrious European traditions, it is a rough diamond, tucked away on a quiet, perfectly situated Manhattan street. After begging and borrowing every penny he can scrape together, Hugues purchases the building—and transforms it into one of the world’s finest luxury hotels.

Under Hugues’s tireless, exacting supervision, the Hotel Vendôme is soon renowned for its elegance, its efficiency, its unparalleled service and discretion—the ideal New York refuge for the rich and famous, as well as a perfect home for Hugues’s beautiful young wife and their daughter. But when his wife runs off with a notorious rock star, Hugues is suddenly a single parent to four-year-old Heloise—who will grow up happily regardless, amid a fascinating milieu of celebrities, socialites, politicians, world travelers, and the countless hotel employees who all adore her.

As the years pass, Hugues and the hotel are the center of Heloise’s life, a universe of unexpected mysteries and pleasures, crises and celebrations that make every day magical. She longs to follow in her father’s footsteps and one day run the Vendôme with him. New challenges mark her way: an unexpected romance for Hugues and her own journey to hotel school in Switzerland. The lessons she has learned at her father’s side, in their exciting upstairs/downstairs world, will carry her through it all, as they illuminate a story no reader will forget.

Welcome to the Hotel Vendôme.

As much as i love her and have read most all her books, i unfortunately have to say this is literally one of the most boring of hers. I feel i wasted money on this. Go rent it at library if u feel u want to read it. :(

Wow - while this was interesting reading I kept waiting for a reason to be reading it. Go to your local library and "rent" it.

I felt that she just kept repeating herself in this book over and over as she did not have enough content to fill the novel.

First book read from this author and probably the last. She kept repeating the same story over an over in almost every chapter. Eithershe thought her readers had short memory or she could not come up with anything else more interesting to say. The story line was very lame.

This book was duller than I expected. I believe I have read some of her previous books and found them for interesting. The plot concept was original enough, but the outcome seemed perfunctory.

Ms. Steele could have had a great story here, but instead chose to lightly gloss over it. I so wanted to know more about the characters and the goings-on at the hotel. However, the author zooms past years and mentions a few episodes in the lives of the characters. Also found it to be repetitive - like she wanted to add pages to the book so she would say the same thing in different ways paragraph after paragraph. Overall, not a total waste of time but left me feeling like I missed out on something.

I think book is great and a charming story.And it takes more than 50 pages 2 understand the book and you'll be surprised at what you find.

This is the first book I have read by this author. I wasted my money. Information was repeated too many times. And it dragged on for too long.
