"For anyone interested in the self-invention and the magic associated with hotels, it's a nifty inside view." - Kitchener-Waterloo Record (Canada) Oct 7, 2011"[The] soul [of this book] is Heard's description of the endless odd quirky incidents that transpire in hotels and of eccentric behaviour by hotel guests (and by hotels themselves).
