A hotel is really like a small city, and you are in charge. You get to boss around the chef. The front desk clerk has to do what you say. Even the pool cleaner has to use the chemicals you specify.

All right, so it’s not Greek god-type power, but you are in charge. More importantly than bossing people around, you will need to exhibit the power to lead, which can be difficult. You also have the power to put your personal stamp on a hotel, and that power – like mold on an unwashed bedspread – will grow with time. But in a less gross way.
