Hotel is a 1965 novel by Arthur Hailey. It is the story of an independent New Orleans hotel, the St. Gregory, and its management’s struggle to regain profitability and avoid being assimilated into the O’Keefe chain of hotels. The St. Gregory is supposedly based on the Roosevelt Hotel.
The novel was adapted into a movie in 1967, and in 1983 Aaron Spelling turned into a television series, airing for five years on ABC. In the TV series the St. Gregory Hotel was moved from New Orleans to San Francisco.
