This German romantic drama was based on the stage play Grand Hotel -- not the famous version written by Vicki Baum (later transformed into an Oscar-winning film), but on a less memorable Grand Hotel penned by Paul Frank. Martha Eggerth stars as a famous dancer, the "kept woman" of a millionaire industrialist. A poor young man falls in love with Eggerth but despairs because he knows he can never support her in the manner to which she is accustomed. To absolutely no one's surprise, the girl abandons her wealthy patron in favor of a life of blissful poverty. Eine Nacht im Grand Hotel was also released in a French-language version.
