Celebrity Hotel Hookups

THE LOVE NEST: Soho Grand Hotel, New York City

THE PLAYERS: John Mayer and Jessica Simpson

THE DISH: John and Jessica's torrid affair was a tangled web, to say the least. But while the rest of us read the tabloids to keep up with the story line, staff at New York City's trendy Soho Grand saw it up close and personal. In August of 2006, Us Weekly reported that Simpson booked a room there under Mayer's name, and that someone in her camp claimed the couple shacked up for two nights. Yet Mayer's people denied that he had ever visited the hotel. (The general thinking was that the recently divorced Jess was trying to score publicity by outing the relationship.) Nonetheless, they dated publicly over the next year until May 2007, when they were rumored to have broken up. Rumored that is, until Mayer was spotted visiting Simpson's room, again in the Soho Grand (a last hurrah, perhaps?). The couple definitely parted ways after that, though OK! magazine said that they narrowly avoided a run-in at—where else?—the Soho Grand, when Simpson was a guest and Mayer was visiting someone else. Simpson reportedly dispatched her assistant to make sure the two did not come face-to-face.
