Saturday, January 26th, 2013
The Beverly Hills Hotel

Travel takes on a new meaning when you follow in the footsteps of film stars. You could request Bungalows 1, 7 or 21 at the The Beverly Hills Hotel in LA, where Marilyn Monroe liked to stay, from $1,500. Or you could check into the Harlequin Suite at London’s Dorchester where Richard Burton proposed to Elizabeth Taylor in the pink marble bathroom, which costs from £7,455 per night.

Dorchester Collection has a portfolio of luxury hotels around the world from which guests can “retrace the footsteps of stars”.

City tourists should be able to get food and drink delivered on the beach, say hotel and restaurant managers who would sell it to them.

Beach hoteliers told commissioners Tuesday that the city's beachfront won't be a truly world-class destination unless their patrons can get beach service — with or without alcohol on the menu.
