In this vignette, Brody explores the notion that the hotel can be seen as a space for transformation and suspension of disbelief. He uses the example of the 1971 film Plaza Suite to illustrate this idea and to show how narratives involving hotel service workers are often reduced to plot devices in popular culture’s depiction of these spaces.
