(Richard E Grant celebrates Paris)

The first series of Hotel Secrets with Richard E Grant will be screened on BBC Lifestyle (channel 174 on DStv) tomorrow (Sunday April 13) at 17h00 on BBC Lifestyle channel 174.

Get a taste of the incredible luxury and often scandalous history of some of the world’s best hotels in this upmarket travel series presented by award-winning actor Richard E Grant. Travelling the world, Richard reveals the stories behind the glamorous facades – from bad behaviour to sex scandals, from warring hotel dynasties to the outrageous extravagances of rich and famous guests.

As he explores hotels such as the George V in Paris, the Four Seasons in New York, the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and the Savoy in London, Richard sets out to discover what makes a select number of hotels so unique. With insights from Donald Trump, Ian Schrager and André Balazs, this series also boasts two specials on Ireland and the French Riviera.
