Production[edit]

The film was the directorial debut of Craig Rosenberg, an Australian writer who had been making a living writing screenplays in Los Angeles. David Parker was producer. Rosenberg:

Working with David Parker was an absolute joy. He's so experienced; he has written, produced and shot feature movies. To have him as producer on my first feature was a remarkable luxury for me because, if I had a writing problem, I could throw it to him and say, `What do you think about this? Read this page for me'. If I had some shooting problem I would say, `What do you think about this?' as well as having him do his normal production responsibilities. So he was a real godsend. He was a dream and he's a lovely person and I think we've formed a long friendship out of the experience.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

The film received mixed reviews.

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times somewhat enjoyed the film, giving it 2 and 1/2 stars out of 4:

Hotel de Love is a pleasant and sometimes funny film, without being completely satisfying. [3]

Stephen Holden of The New York Times called it an "enjoyably ditsy romantic comedy" and "an enlightened 1990s version of a French farce."
