Interestingly the room has remained almost unchanged since the incident and at $160 a night you can sleep in this famous place.
Boutique hotels often hold much mystery and stories of famous visitors, but not perhaps as famous as this visit to L'Hotel in Paris. 'My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or the other of us has to go' Oscar Wilde quoted this famously in this hotel room just before his death in 1900. The hotel is now a very extravagant five star hotel, which is slightly ironic considering Wilde was completely broke during his own stay. In the lobby of the hotel you can find proof of Wilde's stay, including letters asking for him to pay his bill. At 1,000 dollars a night this room is an extravagant treat to say the least.
Lastly, probably the most famous of the boutique hotels, is the rooms 1738, 1740 and 1742 found in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Canada. These rooms were the place that John Lennon and Yoko Ono continued their protest against the Vietnam War in 1969. The suite was also the place that the quirky pair recorded their song 'Give Peace a Chance'
