Negatively, a hotel reflects using people or laziness. A sign that hard work, discipline, respect for others or adherence to principles are not a priority. Slacking off or letting other people do all your work for you. Alternatively, it may reflect your tendency to support others too much. Catering to someone else's every need in a manner that is excessive or doesn't allow them to learn to deal with their own problems. Feeling that someone is asking too much of you. Being used sexually and then discarded.
