Are windows essential when it comes to hotel rooms?

In today’s Times there’s a story about a tourist staying in a UK hotel (owned by the renowned Britannia Group) who ended up in a windowless basement room. Apparently the hotel’s website states that some of their standard rooms do not have windows (so that’s alright, then?).

But I guess the growing trend for pod hotels suggests that – given the right spin and style – windowless hotel rooms can be sold as trendy and fun. Or even “cube-shaped state-of-the-art living spaces” – in the words of Amsterdam’s Qbic Hotel.

Room with No View, anyone?
