HOW IS THIS FOR THE COOLEST JOB ON THE PLANET? Mike-helicopter

October 9, 2008

Dear Editor,

He spends his days traveling the globe checking out luxury hotels to see if they are up to his standards. Not his personal standards, however - standards that were created for the travel club he founded more than 30 years ago and whose members worldwide have come to depend upon his recommendations on not-to-be-missed hotels as well as resorts that are better left a distant vision.

Mike elephant The people who rely on his opinions are a unique group of individuals ranging from notable celebrities, musicians, publishers, authors, and politicians to ordinary folks with extraordinary taste who are all part of a lively community with a passion for luxury travel.

Over the years, this self-proclaimed "Hotel Collector" has visited some 4,000 plus hotels and has been dubbed "The King of the One Night Stand."

Mike Lamborghini Mike Thiel, Founder and CEO of Hideaways International, Inc. (www.hideaways.com) and its Hideaways Aficionado Club estimates he visits some 60 hotels per research trip and he takes about four or five of these trips per year. Do the math - that's some 250-300 hotels visited annually!

There are times when he has been treated like royalty and other instances when he admits that "hand-picking hideaways is no vacation." Sometimes he sees so many properties that they blur into one another were it not for his dictated notes and video camera which help to keep every luxury hotel service and amenity straight.

Mike Canada Over the years, Thiel has also devised many of his own little tricks for determining a hotel's attention to detail and service. His favorite is what he likes to call the "stray paper test." If the individual giving the hotel tour - particularly a high-level manager - stops to pick up a stray scrap of paper or similar foreign object in the corridor or notes and reports on some other out of the ordinary situation, he knows that hotel is paying attention. Thiel admits he's even dropped something himself just to see what they do!

I would love to work with you on a story about this "Hotel Collector" and "King of the One Night Stand." If I can follow up with a press kit or schedule an interview, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Gail Richard
