Nate Freeman has an excellent story over at The Observer for which he called around to New York's ritziest hotels under the guise of Charlie Sheen's assistant to try and book his "employer" a room. The results are frightening.
The hotel was totally accommodating:
"Is there anything we can do to make Mr. Sheen's stay more pleasant?" the Pierre's receptionist asks.
to replace Coke in the fridge with Pepsi
to provide a portable mirror
to furnish the room with two bottles of Johnnie Walker black
Offers not met:
to stop 911 calls: When Freeman asks whether the hotel could block out-going 911 calls on the room phone, the receptionist innocuously offers, "Well, only if you unplug it."
to provide handcuffs: Freeman even has the gall to ask if the hotel would provide handcuffs:
"No, we don't have anything like that," comes the response from the same clerk."
Over whether Freeman is working as the assistant to Martin or Charlie Sheen.
Over whether Sheen has stayed there before
To have the most expensive luxury suite--$709 a night, plus tax
To have an extra rollaway bed (at additional cost), "as only three of Charlie's Goddesses could comfortably fit with him in the king-sized bed
To provide blackout shades
To have adult video selections available
To have the Eloise Suite
Best prank call ever...and indicative of the extremely frightening accommodation level at this city's hotels.
