“The title Hotel is mainly inspired by the idea of the temporary, specifically temporary relationships. Perhaps you’re familiar with the experience of having a relationship that is warm and loving and filled with respect and attraction, but that, in the end of the day, doesn’t work? So you’re in the relationship but you know that you’re going to have to leave. It almost makes the warmth and the intimacy of the relationship that much stronger and that much more intense knowing that it’s temporary.

“Everything in our lives is temporary, including our lives themselves, obviously. But the intimacy of loving, but temporary, relationships was one of the inspirations for the Hotel title and idea. We stay in hotels for brief periods of time. They are places where we live but that are not our homes.”
