Stopping an elevator in a busy hotel for a quickie is a dubious proposition at best, but people do it. "Drunkards would always pull the emergency stop button," recounts one former concierge. And unlike stairwells, elevators are much more likely to have cameras in them. To decrease the likelihood of your bits winding up on the internet, you might want to try the service elevator, explains another employee, since there "aren't always cameras in there."
Skip the pool and head straight over to the hot tub. This tired cliché actually has a particular practical advantage: bubbles. They're like a blanket, but you know, not. Forget your swimsuit? Try the cabanas. "We had a pool on the roof with cabanas," recalls one former hotel employee, "which were situated right where guests could have sex and not be [seen] by others around the pool. I'm not talking an occasional thing, [this was] an almost daily occurrence." That towel boy must've had his work cut out for him.
