‘Hotel’ Goes Back to Beginning With Marketing Deal7 Jul, 2009 By: John Latchem
CBS and Paramount Home Entertainment have teamed with the historic Fairmont San Francisco hotel to promote the July 21 DVD release of Hotel: The First Season. The Fairmont stood in for the series’ fictional St. Gregory hotel.
The Fairmont will offer the rarely seen “Hotel” pilot episode for free in all guest rooms for one year. In addition, the gift shop will sell copies of the DVD and the hotel bar will re-introduce the St. Gregory cocktail to the menu.
The show, created by Aaron Spelling, starred James Brolin and Connie Sellecca.
