Travellers like different things from their hotels.

Some adore the privacy of their deluxe room, away from the demands of family or roommates. In solipsistic comfort, awash with their choice of digital entertainment, they are fed, watered and tidied up after at the dial of a short extension. Others appreciate the more communitarian aspects of a home-away-from-home; the serendipitous conversation at the bar, competitive company in the gym, playmates in the pool, the bustle and hum of the lobby making laptop chores less lonely.
