ROME, August 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Salvador Dali, Nicole Kidman and lots of other stars are well-known for their hotel demands which are sometimes as bizarre as over-the-top. Venere.com publishes the top four celebrity stories in hotels across London, Paris and Chicago, along with a link to bargain bookings in the hotels where stars stayed and are remembered for their scandalous requests.
Mariah Carey, the diva of the Baglioni Hotel (London)
Mariah Carey figures among the most eccentric and demanding of all stars with whims as legendary as her hits. The New York Post recounts that in 2005, the singer demanded that a red carpet should be rolled out under her feet and that silver chandeliers should be lit when she stepped out of her limousine in front of the Baglioni hotel in London. The diva also demanded gold taps, new toilet seats, mineral water to fill her bath tub, and DVD players that continually showing her own video clips. Money no object!

Michael Jackson, a childish whim at the Hempel Hotel (London)
Another worldwide star, adored by millions of fans, Michael Jackson also had some strange requirements. In 2006, he demanded that the World Music Awards commissions the booking of the entire London Hempel Hotel and decorates his room in exchange for his appearance.

Salvador Dali, the Noah of the Hotel Meurice (Paris)
The behaviour of the extraordinary and fabulously eccentric Salvador Dali had to be totally outrageous. This was the case, during his stay at the Hotel Meurice where the master of surrealism, known for his uncontrollable passion for animals, often stayed in his hotel room with all sorts of wild animals often sharpening their claws on the hotel walls; amongst them a horse and a flock of sheep. Dali demanded that the hotel staff hunted flies in the Tuileries Gardens, few meters away from the hotel. However, the great artist knew how to be generous and always rewarded the staff, sometimes even with some of his works including lithographs, now worth a small fortune!

Nicole Kidman, the princess and the pea at the Four Seasons (Chicago)
Another star's whim, this time that of the stunning actress Nicole Kidman at the Four Seasons in Chicago, is worth mentioning. A few days before the actress's arrival, very precise instructions and detailed explanations were sent to the hotel management regarding the preparation of her bed. All instructions were followed shortly before she cancelled her stay!
