Trashing Hotels

Posted By Guru4Travel on Sep 23, 2011 at 6:47AM

One you missed sadly... Trashing a Hotel, rockstar style, sanctioned by the hotel themselves in 2007!

30 Specially selected guests were allowed to smash up the rooms in Madrids NH Hotel Alcala with sledge hammers completely destroying whatever they wanted - including televisions and mirrors in preparation for the hotel's remodelling.

The trashing wasn't just for publicity. The people were selected by psychologists who believe they could benefit from the stress relieving demolition. Psychologist Laura Garcia Agustin explained, “After a few blows comes exhaustion and with it the release of pain-relieving endorphins which make us feel much better.

The amateur demolition crew wore helmets, gloves, goggles, white overalls and protective dust masks. A hotel representative had this to say, “Who hasn't dreamed, in the middle of a stress attack, of breaking everything around them?”.

The lucky celebrity want-to-bes were invited back in September to admire the Hotel NH Alcala's new decor.
