These fictional hotel notepads from Herb Lester is the perfect gift for your traveling writer friend. The notepads come in a set of six, and feature the following hotels:
Bertram’s Hotel (At Bertram’s Hotel, Agatha Christie)
The Great Northern Hotel (Twin Peaks)
The Overlook Hotel (The Shining)
Royal Imperial Windsor Arms Hotel (National Lampoon’s European Vacation)
The Green Man Inn (The Wicker Man)
The Taft Hotel (The Graduate)
To quote Herb Lester, these notepads inspire you to: “Warm your toes (whether you want to or not) at The Green Man Inn, catch up on work at The Overlook, or make friends at The Taft. Tend to a flesh wound at the Royal Imperial Windsor Arms, have sweet dreams at The Great Northern and enjoy the gentle art of murder at Bertram’s Hotel.”
