Six top mystery novels set in hotels

S.K. Golden is the author of the Pinnacle Hotel cozy mystery series. Born and raised in the Florida Keys, she married a commercial fisherman. The two of them still live on the islands with their five kids (one boy, four girls — including identical twins!), two cats, and a corgi named Goku. Golden graduated from Saint Leo University with a bachelor’s degree in Human Services and Administration and has put it to good use approximately zero times. She’s worked as a bank teller, a pharmacy technician, and an executive assistant at her father’s church. Golden is delighted to be doing none of those things now.

At CrimeReads she tagged six favorite mystery novels set in hotels, including:
THE MAID by Nita Prose

This wouldn’t be an accurate list of mysteries set in hotels without including Nita Prose’s bestselling novel, The Maid. The Maid is about a lovable main character, Molly, working as a maid in the Regency Grand Hotel, who discovers a dead body when cleaning a suite. When the police suspect Molly, she and her new friends have to find the actual killer. The sequel, The Mystery Guest, releases this November! Oh, and by the way, it is currently in development as a movie starring the incredible Florence Pugh.

The Maid is among Amanda Craig's top ten books about cleaners.
