In the 1960s a motel in the UK was a very glamerous idea, now it seems Travelodge want to bring back those Halcyon days as the budget hotel brand introduces its first resident writer.Celebrity broadcaster, of Sky News and Fox News fame, Neil Sean is it’s first ever writer in residence.
“I am honoured be the first UK budget hotel resident writer. I choose Travelodge as the brand totally cements the rational behind my latest book, ‘How to live like a celebrity for FREE’. Travelodge is a facilitator that provides a low cost clean comfortable room whilst travelling between A to B. The money that you save by staying with Travelodge you can use to dine out in a flash restaurant, see a top show, hang out in a trendy bar or just go shopping; just like a celebrity.” Sean said.
Whilst staying throughout the Company’s collection of 504 Travelodge hotels across the UK, Ireland and Spain, Neil will pen his first book which is titled ‘How to live like a celebrity for FREE’. Within this publication, Neil will share a compendium of money saving tips and facts he has obtained when interviewing A-list movie stars, TV & sports personalities, pop idols and even Royalty. In addition to the tips, Neil will reveal many tricks of the trade and inform readers: on how they can get their hands on free red carpet premiere tickets, on how to obtain a free holiday, free clothing, make-up, food – basically all the facts and knowhow to live a free celebrity lifestyle. The book also promises to contain never seen before celebrity pictures too.
Jon Hendry-Pickup, Travelodge Operations Director says, “We are delighted to have Neil Sean stay with us whilst he pens his latest book. It may surprise you to know that lots of celebrities stay with us across our 504 hotels – Neil may even bump into a well known personality in our Bar Café and pick up some extra money saving tips for his book.”
Some of the celebrities quoted within the book include singer Jennifer Lopez, telly judge Simon Cowell, singer Beyonce and actor Sir Michael Caine.
“I chose to write this book, as we have become a nation obsessed with celebrity culture and Britons want to replicate an A-list lifestyle but can’t necessarily afford it. Over the years I have interviewed some of the world’s biggest stars and in my new book I will be sharing a compendium of tips and facts on what they did before finding fame to save a buck.” Sean adds.
Some of the stars featured in the book include: Beyonce, J.Lo, Madonna, Simon Cowell, Daniel Craig and even President Obama.
Neil will be checking into various Travelodge hotels across the UK over the coming weeks so that he can write his book and interview some more celebrities who are performing over the country. Some of the locations include: London, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and Edinburgh.
The book will be available to purchase from June 2012 from Amazon, www.bankhousebooks.co.uk & all leading book stores and from on line book stores.
