Aggie's Hotel (also known as Aggie Grey's) is located on Beach Road in Apia, Samoa. First opened as the British Club in the 30's, it became a popular club for American servicemen during WWII. It then developed into a 3-story hotel, and is still owned by the same family today. Aggie Grey is believed to have been the inspiration for James Michener's character Bloody Mary in Tales of the South Pacific.
