Great American Hoteliers: Pioneers of the Hotel Industry
Great American Hoteliers: Pioneers of the Hotel Industry
During the thirty years prior to the Civil War, Americans built hotels larger and more ostentatious than any in the rest of the world. These hotels were inextricably intertwined with American culture and customs but were accessible to average citizens. As Jefferson Williamson wrote in "The American Hotel" (Knopf 1930), hotels were perhaps "the most distinctively American of all our institutions for they were nourished and brought to flower solely in American soil and borrowed practically nothing from abroad". Development of hotels was stimulated by the confluence of travel, tourism and transportation. In 1869, the transcontinental railroad engendered hotels by Henry Flagler, Fred Harvey, George Pullman and Henry Plant. The Lincoln Highway and the Interstate Highway System triggered hotel development by Carl Fisher, Ellsworth Statler, Kemmons Wilson and Howard Johnson. The airplane stimulated Juan Trippe, John Bowman, Conrad Hilton, Ernest Henderson, A.M. Sonnabend and John Hammons. My research into the lives of these great hoteliers reveals that none of them grew up in the hospitality business but became successful through their intense on-the- job experiences. My investigation has uncovered remarkable and startling true stories about these pioneers, some of whom are well-known and others who are lost in the dustbin of history.

Photography inside a casino is usually prohibited. I was pretty excited, when on the last day of my stay, passing by the casino, there was no one around, and so I was able to take several shots of the slots. Not a particularly interesting shot, but I was excited anyway. This casino featured none of my "regular" games of hold'em, baccarat and sic bo. Therefore, I didn't invest any $$$ here at all. Because the casino was between the Coral and Royal Tower, many people had to pass by it walking back and forth, including little kids... seeing children in a casino was weird, they looked out-of-place.
