NH Hotel Eurobuilding??????????

Hey! Does anybody know if this is definitely the official player hotel for the tournament? I phoned the tournament but they said they didn't know. I always stay at the official hotels when I travel to tournaments, but I'm having difficulty in finding out which hotel it is for Madrid. Can anyone help?

Thanks a lot, really appreciate it!

Re: NH Hotel Eurobuilding??????????

Hey Als,

Firstly it seems like a long way for you to travel just to go to one Masters Series tourney, coming from Australia and that. I advise you to head to a Grand Slam as they last longer and therefore your journey will be more worthwhile! You do know that there are four grand slams, don't you?? Back to the subject at hand though! You sound like a wannabe and a bit of a groupie! Basically, you seem like a tennis obsessed fan who just wants to stay in the hotel to stalk players and maybe take a lift ride with them pretending that you're someone too. We've all been there! REALITY CHECK! Als, you'll soon realise that you are just an outsider, looking into a world you will NEVER be a part of! Major bummer! So who really cares what the official hotel of Madrid is? Im sure the local YMCA is just as good, and a fraction of the cost! So get over yourself Als, it's never going to happen!

Vamos RAFA, FELI y NANDO!!!!!!!

Hey - chill out Sue Ellen. If Als cares then she has a right to ask - and if she wants to stay in a Player Hotel and she can afford to do so, then she has as much right to stay in one as anyone else. It's her life and her money and she can stay wherever she wants. As for "pretending to be someone" - well she IS someone - she is herself - and she can do whatever the hell she wants without someone she has never met on MTF calling her a groupie. Players Hotels are usually the best and nicest Hotels in any area - I always like to stay in the best Hotel available when I am on holiday -maybe she wants to do the same? It's her business - no one elses. Tennis players are only people and their "world" is no different from many other peoples - so perhaps you should get a reality check? And just because she has an Australian flag next to her name - does that mean she lives in Australia? She may be an Australian living in Europe for all you know - many people here have flags next to their names which is not the country where they live.

And for your information - I've travelled on the tennis tour for years (and sometimes stayed in Players' Hotels along the way myself - sometimes in a smaller trown there aren't so many good Hotels to choose from) - and I can assure you that the "groupies" do not stay in the Players' Hotels at all. They stay in cheaper accomodation (maybe even Hostels?) and hang around the Bars in the evenings making one drink last all evening in the hope they will meet a player! It never happens - they just get laughed at

And - no - I am not a friend of Als - I have never met her before in my life - and I probably never will - I just thought your answer to her question was very rude and unpleasant for no reason.

And finally - Als - if I knew the answer to your question I would tell you - but I honestly don't know what the Players' Hotel in Madrid will be - I know Eurobuilding was the official Hotel in 2003 but I don't know about this year.

Sue Ellen cares too much about things that are none of her business.

Who wants to play with my balls?

Well aren't you just a mean spiteful girl? Did you not take your meds today?

I took a lift ride with a player once, and life has never been quite the same.....

Als, hope you find the answer to your question and have a lovely time.

great post!

yes, if u can afford to stay at a player hotel it is definitely great. i have done so a few times too and no, if u do that it does not mean u are a groupie. i know several players personally anyway so i do not need to be a groupie. as u say, Rosie, groupies are usually looked at in disdain and can be seen from miles away and avoided. and no, players don't live in a different "world"...they are just normal people who play tennis...there's nothing that special about them so there's no need to put them on pedestals. if u happen to go in a car with them, so what? it's no earth-shattering experience.
staying at player hotels are most useful because of the fact that they are like the tournament nucleus away from the venue itself. u can often get free transfers instead of having to worry about public transport, there is tournament info there if u need it like orders of play, draws etc all in the lobby, yes u might get a few sightings of players and u get to have breakfast with them first thing in the morning, wow...some pretty sights there ...and of course, they are rather luxurious as well ...but whatever, it is a perfectly valid question to ask.

so just ignore this pathetic Sue Ellen troll, probably a groupie herself since she seems to know so much about it.

Re: NH Hotel Eurobuilding??????????

I think Sue is just mad because she doesnt have enough money to travel to different tournaments! Hope you have a great time ALS and stay at the same hotel as the players. and Rosie-your right on- just because they are tennis players doesnt mean they dont live in the same world as we do.

So THAT's what I was doing wrong!

On another note, I've stayed at the official hotel once too and it was nice because there was a shuttle to the event (which only ran once a day and was somewhat inconvenient, but at least it was there) and of course the draws and OoP and all that jazz. And I was not there to be a groupie.

Please to sleep with a player you don't need to be staying in their hotel. A guy can invite you back to his room no matter where you stay.

Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka

Actually watching the groupies in action can be better than many of the matches.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Of course, they aren't usually there to watch the matches either.

True, but there are usually funny things happening with them.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

It doesn't work as well for guys, though...I couldn't get an invite back to Maria Sanchez Lorenzo's room

I can definitely suggest not staying at Washington's official hotel if you ever go there...it is a few hundred a nite, and not even in the city (across the river in Virginia)
