The Midland Hotel is perhaps most famous for being the meeting place of Charles Stewart Rolls and Frederick Henry Royce leading to the formation of Rolls-Royce Limited in 1906.
More recent celebrity stays include Paul McCartney, The Spice Girls, The Beckhams, George Best, Tom Jones, Luciano Pavarotti, Mike Tyson, Jennifer Lopez, Prince Edward and the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The Beatles were famously refused access to the French restaurant for being ‘inappropriately dressed’.

      Waw. That is great entry again. I have just some dubt about the perspective wich bends down a little bit. It was a deliberate choise or an obligation (beacause the tree at right) to make this bias related to the center of the subject.
