For some celebs, being a movie star or rock star simply isn't enough -- so they tacked hotelier onto their resumes.
Here are a few celebrity-owned hotels that we think are worth the hype.
The Greenwich Hotel, New York City: Owned by Robert De Niro
1 of 5
It's surprising to discover that Robert De Niro owns a hotel, but perhaps not as surprising as the fact that it's a serene refuge away from the noise and chaos of the city. Yup, you read that right: we're happy to report that the style wasn't influenced by "Goodfellas" or "Taxi Driver."
Much like De Niro's choice in roles, The Greenwich Hotel
is quite eclectic, drawing inspiration from a medley of cultural influences and eras. There are 88 room and suites -- no two which are alike -- that have first-rate amenities, such as flatscreen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations.
If you've done your part to ensure New York holds claim to the moniker the "City That Never Sleeps," rejuvenate with a Drunken Lotus massage at Shibui Spa, or unwind by the indoor pool, which is housed in an imported Japanese farmhouse. Pretty Zen for an actor known for his ruthless roles.
