In Hotels.com’s latest promotional video titled “Perfect 10 with Christina Ricci,” the famous actress walks through some of the hotel’s most memorable moments, even describing unusual events.
The film opens with Ricci reminiscing about the Sunset Marquee in Los Angeles, a hotel he visited as a child. He has fond memories of the hotel’s garden full of rabbits and its beauty.
The film switches across the pond to the Lanesborough Hotel in London. In addition to praising the hotel’s luxury, Ricci shares an unusual story. One night while there, he encounters what he believes are ghosts in his room. Despite this terrible encounter, the artist was so impressed by the hotel that he decided to stay there.
In a light-hearted anecdote, Ricci recounts an exciting encounter with wildlife at the Four Seasons Punta Mita in Mexico. He recalls the memory of an iguana, lured by the guests’ food, jumping into the hotel pool to chase it away.
Ricci also reveals his hotel preferences, stressing the importance of well-stocked minibars, especially those that include “crushed, salty, round chips in a tube-like container that comes out.”
The actor’s memories include the Chelsea Hotel in New York City, especially its impressive bathroom after renovations. He remembers the time he stayed there in his 20s when the hotel was very impressive.
Ricci also addresses the issue of hotel noise, encouraging guests to be considerate of others, especially at night.
The Villa Cora in Florence, the Covent Garden Hotel in London, and the Hassler Hotel in Rome also feature Ricci’s luxury selections, each offering a unique charm and unforgettable experience. In particular, Ricci is grateful for the wonderful job he received at the Maritime Hotel in New York City when he became ill, with a doorman to walk his dog.
In “Perfect 10 by Christina Ricci,” the actress embodies what makes a hotel unforgettable: not only the luxury or amenities, but also the special events, the polite manners, and the kindness of the hotel staff. From encountering ghosts to chasing an iguana, Ricci’s journey highlights the magic and adventure that comes with travel.
