Latifah's New Film Is A Love Story To Czech Hotel

Subscribe to Queen Latifah alerts

The owners of the Grandhotel Pupp in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, are hoping Queen Latifah's new movie will bring tourists flocking after the historic hotel features heavily in the film.

Latifah's character lives it up in the luxury Czech hotel after learning she's dying of a terminal disease in LAST HOLIDAY.

And hotel bosses are thrilled with the way director Wayne Wang turned the old hotel into a fairytale castle.

But Wang admits the 300-year-old hotel doesn't look anything like the place where Latifah, real name Dana Owens, stayed in the film.

He says, "I think if people went to the hotel they would be very disappointed. It is definitely not like it is in the movie... The hotel is nice but sparse."

And Wang advises holiday makers inspired by the film's main location not to play a winter break there.

He adds, "The winter season is pretty dead. It was a difficult shoot because there wasn't much around the hotel... It was a bit like (the hotel in) The Shining (Jack Nicholson film)."
