I came from Groningen in NL, which due to trackwork involved a regional 
train, a bustitution through rural eastern NL, a local train, an IC that 
was supposed to go through to Berlin but terminated in Hannover due to 
flood damage, and an overcrowded ICE (due to all the people dumped off the 
IC) where I only got a seat because I am a nerd, looked at the platform 
train map, and knew exactly where to stand so I would be at the correct 
door when the train stopped.

So, yes, it was nice to get a room at my hotel and take a shower.  The 
draft beer on the ICE helped, too.

By the way, the wifi on Dutch regional trains is amazing.  It is free, it 
works well, and it knows what train you're on so the startup page shows 
your upcoming stations with delay info updated in real time.

PS: I also agree that it is not in our interest to help hotels walk 
people.  It's their mistake, it's up to them to deal with it, they can see 
where people are from and estimate how far they've come.
