The Luxury Hotel Insider Turns 10!


By: Five Star Alliance

Happy Birthday to us! The Luxury Hotel Insider turns 10 today. In Internet years, that's about 1,000. To put it into perspective, on October 7, 2005, Twitter was 17 months away from being invented, Pinterest had another 5 years to go before it started us all pinning, and Facebook was still called Thefacebook. George W. Bush had just started his second term in office, and the top TV shows were American Idol, CSI, and Survivor.
