Barbra Streisand is staying in a $12,000-a-night suite at the Dorchester in London where she has some performances lined up. Employees have been set up with "strict rules" -- including a demand not to look Barbra directly in the eye. Don't look at me!!
Some of the demands from her stay at at Castletown House last week include a peach-colored toilet roll to match her complexion, and rose petals in the toilet bowl. Also--One hundred-and-twenty designer bathroom towels also in peach and ten highly specified designer floor lamps. Oh yeah, the security team must wear 'neat dark sweaters' and use metal detectors.
A source told London's Evening Standard, "We were given a list of requirements that had to be met. Her manager said she needed certain things to make her feel like she was at home. She is using her own security team and will hardly set foot in the main areas of the hotel. It is easy to enter and exit the hotel from her suite without ever being seen."
A source from the Dorchester said, "We are used to famous people here, but Miss Streisand is almost on a different level. Johnny Depp was here a few weeks ago, but was very low key. He just sat with friends in the bar. He was drinking a $1,200 bottle of wine, but he did not expect any special treatment. But we are expecting everything to be different for her."
