From an article in the LA Times:
"Historic inn closes for the summer because of a big drop in overseas guests, who provide as much as 95% of the season's clientele."
"The blame lies with a poison cocktail of international travel jitters, sour economies and bitter feelings over the war in Iraq. The French, in particular, have canceled vacations in droves, tourists and hospitality industry experts say, fearing American hostility over their nation's rejection of the Iraqi invasion."
