Oregon Hotel for Book Lovers

My aunt sent me a link to the website for The Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport, Oregon, where each room is named after a different author, and the third floor is a library.

I promptly sent the link to no less a dozen friends who would appreciate it and learned that one of those friends had been there before. She declared it a lovely place.

I call dibs on the F. Scott Fitzgerald room. If that's occupied, then I'll go for the Shakespeare room or the Emily Dickinson room.

How could I say no to the Tolkien room?!

I wonder if it was ever occupied by someone who was really named Precious.

I wonder if some people go overboard with costumes and such.

Thank you so much for sharing!! I think I might try to talk my husband into going next summer for our anniversary. Definately the Tolkein room! Unless they open a Rowling room, of course.

Hey, speaking of Rowling. Do you still work in the book store? Do you know if/when HP book 7 will be released in paperback?

Have fun if and when you go!

No release date yet, as far as I know.

To sleep or not to sleep, that is the question.

I have slept in the Edgar Allan Poe room, but it's not that restful to have the stuffed raven staring at you.

Dude, the Poe room? I've just found out has an AXE OVER THE BED.

So. A little bedtime reading, a little Christopher Golden, in the Poe room, eh?

Wow.

Sure! Try the OutCast series - It has a talking raven named Edgar. :)

Too bad there aren't too many pictures with the inside of this hotel, I would have enjoyed seeing that. It's a very original idea, strictly targeted on book lovers, I would give it a try too. I am not fanatic for books but I am sure I will enjoy the experience. On top of my preferences so far is one of the Chicago IL Hotels, let's see if that's about to change.
