New York Hotel Experience

Cultural and Societal Impacts of an American Invention

For more than two hundred years hotels have played a significant role in American history. The modern hotel is even an American invention. In five case studies of iconic New York hotels, this book presents the hotel experience of the white upper class, literati, young artists, African Americans and Jewish Americans in the twentieth century. Using a variety of texts, including autobiographies, movies and novels, the impact of hotel experience on society and culture – which has been neglected until now – becomes apparent. This unique approach offers a new way of reading New York and helps to better understand the city's special dynamics.
