Hotels and their rooms are intriguing micro-worlds. As a guest you are removed from your world and immersed in an ambinece that is transient, isolating, disconnected, and often more opulent or dowdy than yours. The isolation can be appealing and unsettling as you keep company with yourself. I travel often and enjoy the institutional warmth and anonymity of hotels as well as the subtle tranformation they invoke upon the guests.
