Bosses of America's Mark Hotel chain are keen to have JOHNNY DEPP stay with them again after a 1994 New York hotel-trashing incident led to a boost in business.

Hotel publicists have since got in touch with Depp's aides to thank the movie hunk for his night of insanity, when he smashed up a room after a run-in with the paparazzi and got himself arrested.

The actor says, "The owner approached my publicist about two years after the incident and thanked her.

"He said, 'It was so great for us that Johnny got arrested at our hotel and sent to jail - you can't imagine the business we got out of it."
