Six top books that take place in hotels

Rick Moody's new novel is Hotels of North America. One of his favorite books that take place in hotels, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Hotel New Hampshire by John Irving

I became an Irving convert with The World According to Garp, the novel that preceded this one. But I loved The Hotel New Hampshire too, especially for its refrain "Sorrow floats," which, like the "Under Toad" repeatedly mentioned in Garp, becomes a compelling, illuminating shorthand for certain feelings we have about the ways of this world.

The Hotel New Hampshire is among Mark Watson's top ten hotel novels.
