Buy the book: Room 702

Inspired by this post, I decided to do one of my own without blurbs from the book because I am not that coordinated for Room 702!  Hopefully, I’ll be able to complete one for my upcoming novel, Life After Joe, shortly.

1. Sweet Lady Jane cupcakes ($54 for a dozen flavored cupcakes) In Chapter 50, I had mentally patterned a character as the owner of a similar bakery.

4002-12. Veuve Cliquot ($50.99 for bottle) Champagne is ordered quite regularly in the hotel suite, so it seems appropriate to have a bottle on the list.

3. Vintage James Bond poster (prices vary) Fictional James watches over everything in the suite.

4. Ouija Board ($19.07) In Chapter 68, a Ouija board figures quite prominently.  I don’t want to give too much away, but it is used to contact a previous guest.

5. Winchester Bourbon ($23) With the same name as the hotel the book is set in, a bottle of this bourbon feels entirely necessary.

6. Chic and Basic Packaging (hotel shampoo) While Bvlgari is the house brand for toiletries at The Winchester, I couldn’t help but include this packaging from Chic and Basic.  Not sure how much a night at one of their properties is, but it might be worth it!

7. La Perla lingerie ($550.00 for the Maison Slip) In Chapter 34, if you’re going to lose your virginity, you might as well do it in high class underwear.

8. Lost in Hotels ($3.99 for the Kindle version) Perhaps a bit meta, but I wanted to include another fictional work about hotel rooms.

9. Souvenir matchbooks (free!) Yes, the Winchester gives away free matchbooks (even in nearly smoke free Los Angeles).  I like this example from La Bottega at the Maritime Hotel in New York.

10. Keepall Bandouliere 50 Louis Vuitton luggage ($1,740) What is a weekend stay at a luxury hotel if you don’t have the luggage to match?
