    He put the "con" in concierge.

    A hotel-bed-surfing swindler has rooked dozens of victims in four states by claiming he can get them discounted premium accommodations in Manhattan and South Beach -- but then would stay in the fancy rooms himself, on his victims' dime, prosecutors said today.

    Accused phony concierge Robert Giuliano was a regular guest at W Hotel, Westin, Mercer Hotel, Four Points and St. Regis, among others, before his "Giuliano Group Concierge" scheme unraveled, according to the charges against him.
    He'd promise victims in New York, California, North Carolina and Massachusetts access to everything from Fashion Week events to the presidential inaugural ball, prosecutors said.
    But when victims realized Giuliano had been living large on their credit cards, the fraudster would make a million false excuses, prosecutors told a judge today -- including that his "wife" was on chemotherapy, that he had suffered a death in his family or, most oddly, that he had been "kidnapped."
