Summary

Richard E Grant travels to Venice, said to be the city with the highest concentration of luxury hotels on the planet. He discovers how a measuring error led to the building of the city's biggest swimming pool, tries out a 15,000 euro-a-night royal suite whose bed has been slept in by everyone from the Beckhams to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, and visits a hotel that keeps its doors open even when water floods to knee height. He also finds out why breaking a window once earned Ernest Hemingway a 10 per cent discount on his room.
