"This book recounts the enthralling history of the hotel in America - a saga in which politicians and prostitutes, tourists and tramps, conventioneers and confidence men, celebrities and salesmen all rub elbows. Hotel explores the development of this distinctive institution and how it shaped the United States socially, economically, and politically. Beginning in the 1820s, hotels operated alongside steamboats and locomotives, tying the nation together through networks of travel, trade, and communication."--BOOK JACKET.
