Episode 1: Miami

Summary

The actor returns to explore more of the world's most luxurious hotels and begins in Miami's South Beach, home to some of the most hedonistic and extravagant establishments in America. At the Fontainebleau, he meets a man with eye-opening stories about Frank Sinatra's regular visits and gets a shock when he discovers how much it costs to hire a booth in the night club. Richard also gatecrashes swimwear fashion week at the Raleigh Hotel, where he speaks to the event manager about the many celebrity parties he has organised

Review

Boy, has Richard E Grant fallen on his feet with this show, returning for a second series. And we get to drool vicariously as he swans around looking elegant and just a touch louche, sampling the world’s swankiest accommodation.

In this episode it’s the neon lights and art deco delights of Miami: a place, it seems, where the rich and famous can live out their most decadent daydreams. Here, as one would expect, Richard rides in a lobster-pink Cadillac, visits a swimwear convention and gets smeared in mud at a saucy spa hotel.

The city certainly has its gaudy side (at one tacky nightspot, women shorter than 5ft 8in are turned away), but some of the pastel-shaded 1930s architecture is magnificent.
