In choosing a room people could look at size, comfort, amenities, proximity or distance from the elevator, and so forth. You could be asked to choose from single or twin beds, smoking or non-smoking, lower or higher floor, and so on. I think all this matters less. I singularly (well almost singularly) focus on the view. To me that makes such an enormous difference. It is the difference between waking up to glowing face versus a thud on the head. Of course Mr Emerson, from the movie Room with a View, would disagree, "I don't care what I see outside. My vision is within! Here is where the birds sing! Here is where the sky is blue!" he memorably said. Well I think taking a bit of help does no harm, once I see what there is - I can imagine whats beyond. What do you think?
