Jagger Refuses To Give Bush Hotel Room
SIR Mick Jagger has refused to give up his room in an Austrian hotel after US President George W Bush attempted to book it for himself. THE Rolling Stones frontman is paying $6,300 (GBP3,600) a night for the luxury Royal suite at the Imperial Hotel in Vienna, which he reserved just days before Bush's assistants tried to book it for a summit meeting. The president's aides have tried to persuade Jagger, who has spoken out against the war in Iraq, to give the room up - without success. A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "White House officials had wanted to reserve the suite and all the other rooms on the first floor. But Mick and the Stones had already booked every one of them. "Bush's people seemed to be under the impression that they would just hand over the suites but there was no way Mick was going to do that." The Royal suite is ranked among the top 100 best hotel rooms in the world.
