I am a believer in using hotels as a convenient and good shooting location. All hotels offer some basic backdrops for shooting, and depending upon the hotel, can provide anywhere from a basic to a grungy to an elegant location to shoot in. There are often ample lamps around for available light shooting, or a few lights from your home or studio can transform a hotel into your own studio for the duration of the shoot.
And if a model needs a place to stay while in a city, she's usually happy to make use of the bed after the shoot.
