A lot of hip hotels like to bandy about the names of celebrities who have stayed there. Some will even put them up in exchange for publicity.
But celebrity guests sometimes come with strings attached -- a lot of strings.
"The flip side is some of these celebrities do not how to behave in a civilized manner," said Peter Frank, editor in chief of Concierge.com, which recently published a list of the world's worst hotel guests.
"There are certain celebrities who feel entitled to be above the rules and be treated like demigods," he added, "having diva demands or enormously destructive parties."
Or like actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi, who allegedly skipped out on their final hotel bill. Last week, the Quaids were arrested in Texas after the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department issued a warrant when they failed to pay a bill of more than $10,000 to a local California hotel.
