Hey chatty - while your own room is def. the way to go, I often just scope out the bathroom by the gym or pool or lobby at the hotel I'm staying in. I would rather not stink up the whole room anyway. So, I don't mind bunking w/ people and I just say "oh I'm going to go for a walk around the hotel" and just use the bathroom in the lobby instead. Or say you are running for coffee, the newspaper, to the gym, etc. No one needs to know the real reason. The gym is a great one (unless someone wants to join you) because you have an excuse to stay out of the room for a half hour or more and you can just hang in the public bathroom down there.
I remember doing that when I had a new lover...tee hee
