Grand Hotel

Larry Pennisi on the promotional press kit


Unsteady Freddie notes that the Grand Hotel promotional items also included : ' the towel that was issued as a promo item. I have it framed hanging in my apartment bathroom (where else should I hang it?)'

Press kit: the black leatherette zipper case which houses the treasured contents. Above that is the Grand Hotel memo pad which has a few pages left. The kit was won in an auction about fifteen years ago, if memory serves. There was also a Grand Hotel shopping bag, but the 25-dollar price-tag was a bit steep when I saw it recently in Goldmine Magazine. Perhaps ... another day.

 

 

 

Some most cherished items, all colors accurate and un-retouched: the Grand Hotel press kit contents themselves. Starting at upper left, the Grand Hotel felt carry pouch. To its right and still sealed in the plastic wrapper is the Grand Hotel soap bar. Below that lies the Grand Hotel door hanging sign which says, 'Please come in (or) Do Not Disturb, I'm listening to Procol Harum- Grand Hotel.' Inserted inside that is a box of Grand Hotel Grand Hotel matches. Barely visible at lower left is a Grand Hotel keychain. There was also a Grand Hotel ballpoint pen but that was almost impossible to scan. The combination to the vault this is kept in is: L3R5R14 :-)
