Who Are the Worst Celebrity Hotel Guests?

Nicole Kidman could give Carey a run for her money. She reportedly had one of her staff members send fancy 800-thread-count Italian sheets and a diagram for how the bed should be made before her arrival. Only thing, she never showed up.

Why do hotels cave to their demands?

"The really luxurious hotels like to think they can satisfy any demand," Frank said. "They're famous for doing the impossible. It can reflect pretty well on hotel, but they don't want to encourage it either."

The Ragers:

"Just like there's air rage, there's hotel rage," Frank said.

Russell Crowe and Naomi Campbell have both had episodes of rage while staying at a hotel.

Campbell used her cell phone in 1998 to assault her assistant, Georgina Galanis, in a Toronto hotel room. She paid a fine and her record was expunged, Frank said, but not without earning her the title of angriest supermodel.

Crowe also turned a phone into a weapon. When he couldn't complete a call to his wife back home in Australia, while he was staying at New York's Mercer Hotel, he unplugged the phone in his room, brought it downstairs to the lobby and threw it in the face of 28-year-old concierge Nestor Estrada.

Estrada, who required stitches, sued Crowe and settled for an undisclosed sum of money.

"Celebrities forget sometimes they are not at home," Frank said. "It's another business, and they are essentially in public."

David Carradine:

The "Kung Fu" actor is the latest celebrity to turn up dead in a hotel room. There have been many famous deaths in hotel rooms, from John Belushi's overdose in Los Angeles' Chateau Marmont to Sam Cooke's murder, also in L.A., to Sid Vicious killing Nancy Spungen in New York's trendy Chelsea Hotel.

Carradine was found hanging by a rope in the closet of his room at the SwissĂ´tel in Bangkok. His death was ruled an accident from what appeared to be autoerotic asphyxiation.

"Celebrities travel a lot and they stay in a lot of hotels," Frank said. "They drink and do drugs and have their strange sexual peccadillos in hotels, because where else are they going to do it?"

The Rockers:

Ever since Keith Moon from the Who threw a television in the pool from the balcony of his hotel room, rockers have earned a reputation for being hard on a hotel room.

"I think rockers from the '60s on have looked up to him for exemplary behavior," Frank said.

One of them who took him to heart is Courtney Love. While celebrating her 43rd birthday at London's Covent Garden Hotel two years ago, the former Hole singer trashed the room.

"The room was left in a right state like a wild animal had been let loose in there," an unnamed witness later told London's Daily Mirror.

Love's rep played down damage, claiming one of the guests was "leaning on a table." The hotel insisted that "what our guests do in here is between them and us."
