The Paramount Hotel

The Paramount (with the word hotel conspicuously absent from its name) would be more than a place to sleep. And no surprise given Schrager’s background in defining the quintessential New York night life during the late ’70s and early ’80s with both Studio 54 and the Palladium. The Paramount, as his mind’s eye saw it, would offer the best of services by bringing in some of the acknowledged tastemakers of their fields: Brian McNally would open a restaurant; Dean & Deluca, a branch of their gastronomie; Hubert Boukobca of the Parisian night club Les Bains Douches, a similar version.

EuroDisney Takes Center Stage

It’s worth remembering that Mickey and his crew are children of the Depression and will seem out of place and under-dressed in Euro Disneyland’s hotel area, an environment decorated with the hyper-sophisticated ironies of Post-Modern design. What distinguishes some of these hotels is their gawking obeisance to the monied world of Newport, New York City of the 1920s, and the beaches of Rio, with the slums wished away. By taking the facades of wealth and attaching them to conventional Ramada-like hotels, Eisner’s architects have made gawking at the rich a new Disney attraction.

Ideas For Staying In Florida

Apalachicola Is the center of a relatively hard-to-reach coastal region in the eastern Panhandle which is, ironically, prime for vacationing because little has been done for tourists. What has been, on tawdry St. shores on its western and northern sides which ebb into blue waters. Families vacation in a string of little towns whose short and curving streets slow such traffic as eddies toward land’s end. Children can safely ride bikes here. Action peaks at the Sandbar, where the person who comes closest to guessing when the sun will set is rewarded with a bottle of champagne.
