Fictional?

This reminds me very much of getting our seminar team's reservations unscrambled at a hotel near Los Angeles International Airport. Howard C. Berkowitz 13:38, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Do you propose to delete "fictional"?  ;-) Peter Schmitt 14:10, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
No, I prefer to think of that stay as a bad dream. Howard C. Berkowitz 14:20, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Finished?

I think this is all there is to say -- possibly one could collect references to Hilbert's hotel in literature, movies, etc. But this should rather go into a Catalog, I think. Peter Schmitt 21:11, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
