Hedy Lamarr


{Vienna, November 9, 1914 — Altamonte Springs, January 19, 2000}


Hedy Lamarr is praised in our Torel Avantgarde boutique hotel with our best category: a Suite Royal, in-room bathtub, views to the Douro River and a fireplace.

The room decor and tones represent the 40's glamor and the artist's Hollywood life, through elements such as mirrors and leather.

Her career as an inventor is also represented in the room, through the science books scattered around the room.
