SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – With Thanksgiving and the holidays approaching, hotels in San Francisco would normally be booking up fast.
“Normally this time of year, valet parking is a hot commodity and we have a huge amount of weekend people coming in,” Mark Beevor said.
However this year, many rooms sit empty and it’s not only affecting the hotel industry but many others around them.

General manager of Hotel Zetta, Mark Beevor, says the percent of rooms filled right now is much lower than this time last year.

Bathe in a champagne glass. Sleep in a giant clam. Lock your lover in a ye olde dungeon, (if that’s your thing). When it comes to kitsch hotel experiences, the trompe l’oeil sky is the limit. Now more than ever, we’re jazzed at the prospect of escaping daily life, if only for a night, with a stay at a room whose number is merely “Rainforest Suite.”
Alas, the world of over-the-top hotel sleuthing can feel daunting. So we consulted kitsch hotel expert Margaret Bienert, who test-runs the kitschiest hotels across the US with her husband, Corey, and airs all the deets on the couple’s Instagram and (addictive) YouTube series, “A Pretty Cool Hotel Tour.” Her pro tips? Firstly, bed bug-haunted reviews are a deal-breaker. However, “if the biggest complaints are that the towels are a little crusty and there’s a stain on the carpet,” she says, “I go ahead and

Figueras, often referred to as the David Beckham of polo, explained to CBS that he saw first hand what type of guy Harry is when the two stayed at a hotel before a charity polo match last month.
