Day 861: Hotel Nacional

Built in 1930, Havana’s Hotel Nacional was once a place where the world’s elites
rubbed elbows. Laetitia and her group stayed there on the first tour she led in Cuba.
The hotel’s lengthy list of famous guests included Winston Churchill and the Duke of
Windsor and many famous movie stars of the past such as John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich and Marlon Brando.

At Hotel Nacional, famous hosts
Partied with high society’s toasts
The naive and the jaded
Though its glory’s now faded
It’s still haunted by distinguished ghosts.
