Word is that she tucked into bed in the Presidential Suite, reserved another suite for her chef and kitchen and yet another for her exercise room. In all, her entourage took over a whopping 45 rooms.
Ms. Ciccone used the St. Regis not only as home base in Houston but also as her jumping off place for her concerts in San Antonio and Tulsa.
The only sign that a big name had checked into the five-star hotel was the unmarked tour bus hauling a black trailer parked out front. That generously sized trailer was said to carry Madonna's luggage. We're assuming that included her costumes.
(We know of only one other diva who travels with that much luggage and she lives here in Houston.)
Madonna's dancers, however, called the Four Seasons Hotel downtown home for those nights. And that's where make-up artist Edward Sanchez ran into the twentysomethings Wednesday night in the hotel bar. An instant friendship formed and the kids wanted to take a busman's holiday — go dancing. Sanchez led them to Tony's Corner Pocket where he left them rocking the night well after midnight.
The dancers were all wearing surgical masks. As explained to Sanchez, their contracts do not allow them to take selfies with fans. So when someone's in a photo, they slip on the surgical mask to hide their identity. Who knew?
