When Edwin Christian inherits the once elegant Hotel St. George from his grandfather, he soon learns that all of his training as a Marine special-recon officer might not be enough to save the aging queen of local hospitality. From murder to scam artists and exotic dancer convention he's soon reminded that clean sheets and a smile aren't all you need when guests are involved. His allies are a unique collection of aging department heads that he once worked for as a child growing up in the hotel. His enemies include two dysfunctional older siblings, the rapidly declining financial results of the hotel, some local city officials on a mission, and the everyday mind-boggling behavior of many hotel guests. Normal people often do strange things on the road. When he meets a young tough-minded attorney, he gets some business relief but he also gets another dilemma...how not to make a fool of himself in trying to create a relationship. The all too real workings and daily happenings in hotels around the world come to life as he tries to save the St. George.

Review:

If you stay in hotels or work in the Travel Industry, you'll love this book. Saving The St. George captures the real world of guests and employees and the amusing, tragic, and happy human events that make the hotel business fascinating.

"(The book) spells out, in lurid detail, what goes on behind the scenes at a hotel..."

Kitty Bean Yancey in USA Today's Hotel Hotsheet


Saving the Saint George is a delightful read and a fascinating back-stairs look into the operations of a hotel and the hotel industry. The plot is captivating, the characters are straight out of corporate America, and the author moves it all along at a nice clip. Jeannine Addams - Public Relations Counsel

The world of hotels in hospitality was accurately depicted in many of the scenes in Arthur Haileys's 1960s HOTEL.

Greg Plank combined real world background and experiences to this approach in Saving the St. George. I recommend this as an excellent successor to HOTEL.
