Weiners of the world, take note: here are our picks for the luxurious hotels home to some of the most infamous celebrity scandals.
<a href="http://www.oyster.com/washington-dc/hotels/renaissance-mayflower-hotel/#checkin=2011-06-10&checkout=2011-06-11"><b>The Renaissance Mayflower Hotel</a></b><br>Eliot Spitzer's infamous, resignation-inducing hook-up in Room 871 with prostitute Ashley Dupre earned the Mayflower instant notoriety. But it wasn't the first celebrity scandal in the hotel's colorful past. President Clinton was photographed publically embracing Monica Lewinksy at a 1996 campaign event here, and House prosecutors later interviewed Lewinsky in the Presidential Suite before Clinton's impeachment trial.
<a href="http://www.oyster.com/washington-dc/hotels/washington-hilton/"><b>Washington Hilton</b></a><br>Right outside the Washington Hilton, President Reagan was shot in the lung at the hand of mentally ill John Hinckley Jr. in 1981 after giving a speech at the hotel. The action was fueled by Hinckley Jr.'s obsession with Jodie Foster. It is thought that he was playing out a scene in <i>Taxi Driver</i> where a deranged man tried to murder a politician to win the actress's character over (we don't recommend this technique to woo a woman). Needless to say, he was deemed insane and is now in an asylum.
<a href="http://www.oyster.com/washington-dc/hotels/marriott-wardman-park-hotel/"><b>Marriott Wardman Park Hotel</b></a><br>The Marriott Wardman Park Hotel is known for war-time celebrity scandals. Just before the U.S. entered World War II, a British Spy using the name Cynthia used the hotel as a base while spying on the French Vichy Embassy. Considered a swallow ' a person who uses sexuality during war-time to gain information ' her flirtatious nature worked to her advantage and she was able to access top-secret documents during her stay at the Marriott.
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/washington-dc/hotels/the-jefferson/">The Jefferson</b></a><br>This elite D.C. boutique is named after a founding father with an ignonimious sex life, so it's only fitting that it was the scene of a salacious modern-day political sex scandal. Strategist Dick Morris resigned in 1996 after a woman claimed he paid her for sex at The Jefferson. The event was made more famous after it was reported that during their rendezvous he sucked her toes and allowed her to listen in on his phone with President Clinton (we're hoping not at the same time).
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/washington-dc/hotels/the-hay-adams/">The Hay Adams</b></a><br>One of the oldest and most historical hotels in the District, the Hay-Adams has certainly seen some celebrity scandals during its time. The most notorious occurred in 1989 when Carl 'Spitz' Channell, known as an extremely conservative right-wing activist, held a fundraiser at the hotel to fund weapons for Nicaraguan rebels. He later pled guilty to charges relating to the Iran-Contra-Affair.
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/las-vegas/hotels/mgm-grand-hotel-and-casino/">MGM Grand Hotel and Casino</b></a><br>Although his multiple (and we mean multiple) affairs did not surface until 2009, Tiger Woods was allegedly cheating on wife as early as one year into their 2004 marriage. The first of his many mistresses to come forward, Jaimee Grubbs said that she met Woods in 2007 at a Las Vegas nightclub. After asking her over to his table, Woods invited Grubbs back to his suite at the MGM Grand -- a night which resulted in an 18-month affair (and numerous dropped endorsements).
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/new-york-city/hotels/four-seasons-new-york/">Four Seasons New York</b></a><br>Apparently steroids aren't Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez's only vice: He has reportedly entertained a number of high-class prostitutes at this swanky establishment while still married -- ladies supplied to him by none other than former New York governor Eliot Spitzer's madame of choice, Kristin Davis.
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/los-angeles/hotels/chateau-marmont/">Chateau Marmont</a></b><br>Jessica Simpson may act like a ditzy blonde, but she had to know what she was getting into with this one -- in 2004, while she was still married to Nick Lachey, Simpson allegedly starting hooking up with Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine at the Chateau Marmont. Shortly after the divorce was finalized, she was photographed leaving the hotel wearing Levine's shirt.
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/new-york-city/hotels/loews-regency/">Loews Regency</a></b><br>This family-friendly luxury hotel on the Upper East Side hardly seems like a place for sleazy encounters, but that didn't stop Rielle Hunter from propositioning John Edwards after spotting him at the Regency hotel bar. Elizabeth Edwards wrote in her book, <i>Resilience</i>, that Rielle "wait[ed] for him outside the hotel hours later when he returned from a dinner, wait[ed] with the come-on line, 'You are so hot.'" And we all know where that led...
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/new-york-city/hotels/soho-grand-hotel/">Soho Grand Hotel</a></b><br>Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz and singer Ashlee Simpson may be married now, but a drunken outburst by Ashlee revealed that the pairing didn't start quite so innocently. Simpson reportedly screamed at Pete's confused ex Michelle Trachtenberg, "I hope you know, the whole time you were dating Pete, I was [bleep]ing him!" And where did this illicit bleeping begin? At none other than the Soho Grand Hotel, hubby Pete said on the Howard Stern Show.
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/new-york-city/hotels/the-carlyle-a-rosewood-hotel/">The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel</b></a><br>For celebrity lovers trying to avoid being plastered all over the tabloids, the Carlyle might be their best bet. Its expert discretion -- photos aren't even allowed in the restaurants when there are people present -- has earned the historic hotel its status as a vault to some of the city's biggest secrets. Even JFK and Marilyn Monroe reportedly trusted their affair to the Carlyle. And unlike other couples on this list, their notorious rendezvous was never conclusively proven.
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/los-angeles/hotels/the-georgian-hotel/">The Georgian Hotel</a></b><br>Clark Gable and Carole Lombard worked together on the set of <i>No Man on her Own</i> in 1932, but sparks didn't fly until 4 years later, when they reconnected at a gala. The then-married Gable had to keep things hush-hush, so the pair secretly met at The Georgian Hotel -- until they were outed in a scandalous article, Hollywood's Unmarried Husbands and Wives. Gable divorced his wife and married Lombard in 1939.
<b><a href="http://www.oyster.com/los-angeles/hotels/the-beverly-hills-hotel/">The Beverly Hills Hotel</a></b><br>The Beverly Hills Hotel's secluded bungalows are a favorite with Hollywood heavy-hitters hiding their secret affairs. Howard Hughes kept 4 bungalows at the hotel -- 2 as decoys, 1 for him and his wife, and 1 for his mistress of the hour. Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, after meeting on the set of <i>Woman of the Year</i>, lived together in Tracy's bungalow for the majority of the 1940's and 50's, even though Tracy never divorced his wife.
