(Thriller) Based on a short story by Stephen King, a man who specializes in debunking the paranormal checks into the infamous room 1408 in the Dolphin Hotel, only to discover… the terror is real.

As creepfests go, 1408 is right up there with The Shining, also inspired by a Stephen King work and featuring a menacing hotel and the wobbly sanity of a writer lodging there. "It's an evil [bleep]-ing room!" intones Samuel L. Jackson, who plays the smooth but vaguely sinister manager of the Dolphin Hotel. John Cusack is stellar as Mike Enslin, a cynical Everyschlub who writes "occult travel guides," but believes in nothing, especially anything resembling an afterlife.
What happens in room 1408 of the Dolphin may change Enslin forever--if he survives the first hour. The thrills range from jumpy "gotcha" moments involving mirror images, to more traditional horror fare like bleeding walls, to truly diabolical touches like the recurrence of the Carpenters' "We've Only Just Begun." (Shudder.) The film does a nice job of weaving the operatic horror effects with the truly heart-breaking backstory of the death of Enslin's young daughter and his marriage--perhaps the only two things Enslin has ever believed in. And thankfully, there's just enough humor to leaven the intensity at key moments; Cusack is unparalleled when it comes to delivering a self-deprecating wisecrack, even as his life passes before his eyes. Get your adrenaline pumping and check into this room. Oh, and sorry, no refunds. A.T. Hurley

Hotel Laimer Hof - Munich, Germany
Hotel Laimer Hof - Munich, Germany
(What follows is the review of Hotel Laimer Hof that I wrote for a number of travel sites). Never, in all of my travels, have I felt more welcome or experienced such hospitality as I received at Hotel Laimer Hof. The owner, Sebastian, is an absolute gentleman and his warmth and generosity resulted in the perfect culmination of a trip down the Romantic Road with my fiance. The hotel itself is gorgeous, cozy, and situated in a quiet, low-traffic neighborhood only one block from Schloss Nymphenburg, two blocks from tram access at Romansplatz, and just a bit further from the S-Bahn. There are several restaurants close by and Sebastian's recommendations were outstanding. There are also a number of shops, including a small supermarket, at Romansplatz where snacks and sundries can be acquired. The tram ride to Karlsplatz, in the city center, is only about 10 or 15 minutes and is even shorter on the S-bahn. We were able to purchase a 3-day partner ticket (good for up to 5 people) directly from Sebastian at a small discount and he provided us with maps and detailed information on how to get around. The room we stayed in was very nice and overlooked a quiet side street. The decor enhanced the quaint, romantic atmosphere. Though the room was a bit small many European hotel rooms are, and I fully expected this and had no issues with it what so ever. Additionally the shower was very small and may be difficult to use for larger travelers, although this is also typical of many other European hotels and I did not mind. One thing that may be slightly inconvenient to business travelers is that although the hotel does have free wireless internet, a code to access it must be obtained from whoever is working at the time. Each code provides 30 minutes of access at which point a new code must be entered. Though this can be slightly inconvenient both Sebastian and the gentleman who worked in the late evening offered to give me as many codes as I could possibly need so I would not have to keep going back down to the front desk. There is also a computer and printer located in the lobby which are available for guests to use 24 hours a day. As the hotel is quite old, and is historically protected, the walls may be a bit thin. On one occasion the guest next door were very loud late at night which woke us up. However, Sebastian lives with his family in the hotel and was very quick to take appropriate action. In spite of the very minor things I noted above my overall experience at Hotel Laimer Hof was second to none and I only regret not being able to stay longer. I will look no further for a hotel on my next trip to Munich and I can recommend Hotel Laimer Hof without hesitation. dsc_0776

Hotel Hal-Tur
According to the Rough Guide this is the"most prestigious hotel in the village". We arrived at the end of the season so we received a huge discount on our rooms overlooking the pool and the travertine terraces of Pamukkale. The hotel proprietor offered a further discount when he heard we disliked President Bush as much as he did. From there he spoke of his love of former President Clinton's diplomacy in world matters and about the damage that our current president has managed to cause in world relations today.
