% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Winner of 17 Awards for Humor, The Lobby, by Randi M Sherman is a welcome and much needed escape.

Reminiscent of Grand Hotel and Neil Simon’s California Suite, THE LOBBY sheds a hilarious spotlight on the comings and goings of anonymous people who come to life in the lobby of the grand Shipley Hotel. Practically engineered for eavesdropping, San Francisco’s juiciest hotel lobby offers the perfect place to witness the lives—and the most comedic intersections off staff, long-term residents, and eclectic guests.

“The Lobby” is an impressive, deftly crafted work of original fiction that will prove to be a riveting read from beginning to end.”

“More than just a hotel, the Shipley is the “landmark choice of San Francisco hotels,” says the narrator. “It is a microcosm of humanity where visitors gather, common people feel sophisticated, strangers pass as interesting, twelve dollars seems a fair price for a cup of coffee, and where our perky and attentive staff provides the gold standard in artificial concern and comfort.”
