Edwin Christian, the ex-marine special operations officer . was about to fight a civilized, non-violent war to save a hotel. The challenges would be unique: scam artists, murder, rape, city officials, financial hardship, challenging guests, muggers, a car thief, dysfunctional siblings, and exotic dancers. The only guns would be carried by the DEA, the police, and a boy bent on suicide. He stood on the front steps of the law firm of LaGrange, Harrelson, and Smith. He was there for the reading of his grandfather's will. In the next hour, he would become the owner of the Hotel St. George: once the crown jewel of hospitality in the city, now a respectable but aging part of the city's history. It was one of a dying breed of independently owned upscale hotels battling the large chains. Edwin had no idea what he was about to face with the classic old hotel, with its hundreds of employees, thousands of guests, and 800 rooms in the middle of the city."Plank's forty years of hotel experience takes you inside the real hotel business. Saving the Saint George captures the authentic world of guests and employees and the amusing, tragic, and satisfying human events that make the hotel business fascinating. -Joseph McInerney, President of the American Hotel & Lodging Association
