In this great screen drama, the glitz and glitter of Berlin's opulent Grand Hotel comes alive with its star-studded guests and employees: Greta Garbo, John Barrymore, Joan Crawford, Wallace Beery and Lionel Barrymore. Year: 1932

This Academy Award winner for Best Picture is a sweeping soap opera about the guests at the Grand Hotel. Several plots intertwine, but mostly it's about Stars! Stars! Stars! Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, Wallace Beery, and both Barrymore brothers head up the cast. Garbo is luminous as Grusinskaya, the neurotic and famous-but-slipping dancer and, yes, she "vonts to be alone." John Barrymore is a cat burglar with blue blood and a heart of gold, and Lionel Barrymore happily caroms off him as Mr. Kringelein, a dying man who wants to live out the time he has left with the rich. Joan Crawford is perhaps the biggest surprise of the movie: as Flaemmchen, a young career girl trying to decide between secretary and tart, she is uncharacteristically funny, vivacious, and downright bubbly. Along the way we discover that money, fame, and titles don't guarantee happiness, and being a jewel thief doesn't necessarily make you a bad person. The nicest touch is the hint that other, minor plots swirl around the edges of the film, suggesting that we've only seen a small chapter of the hotel's story. Grand Hotel is a great deal of fun and an excellent chance to see some famous faces in their prime. --Ali Davis

The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Geneva - formerly the Hotel du Rhone - 02/11/2009 - Switzerland - Landmark Hotel! - The grand entrance of the hotel brings the world together!
Did you know? The Mandarin Oriental Geneva was built and opened as the first 5 star grand hotel to constructed in Europe after the second world war! Also interesting enough - photography in the lobby area or floor areas ( public spaces is not allowed! But to my chagrin I did not know this! That's why this photographic works are so extemely rare! Another note to the hotel is the name thing! Why Mandarin Oriental has changed the name to not show the history of the hotel is one of the great mysteries to us! Hotel du Rhone was the famous name that the hotel has worn for over 50 years! Now its only one of many Mandarin Oriental Hotels in the World! No Problem for us, but the Hotel du Rhone name should have been preserved like, let's saty: The Mandarin Oriental Hotel du Rhone Geneva! Thanks!!!!! However the drinks and the ambience are very enjoyable! Photography should be allowed, because that's why you call yourself to be in the hospitality business! Geneva 2009 and the true meaning of understanding and real passion plus the guts to be an individualist!
