Thoughtful... but slightly weird. I would have been torn between thankful and very afraid.

you don't happen to be in Room 1408, do you?...RUN AWAY!!!

Slightly weird, not creepy. All three photos from Neil's blog. If N doesn't use code name to check in, and there's a fan on staff, easy to construct.

That is very very strange.

Interdimensional osmosis.

i'm gonna go with thoughtful. clearly his assistant or one of his staff members thought it would be a nice touch of home. i say they've earned a little extra christmas bonus. :)

I did it, mystery solved....

Guessing the one featured in the middle had something to do with it. I'd start my investigation there.

Maybe your family misses you and they knew what hotel you were staying at? This could, like someone else already said before, either be very sweet or very creepy. What do you think?

Um, at least they're *your* children!

ana_asch 1581 days ago

hmm, seems like you got back home and still think you're in a hotel room?

that's what I call a hangover

What a glorious mystery it is, though.

You put it there yourself and then took a picture and made us believe it mysteriously appeared. Taaah-daaah!

You forgot you put it in your rider, along with 2 purring ocelots and a tube of smarties with all the brown ones removed.

That is simultaneously very creepy and very kind. I hope it's mostly kind though, because if not, that'd be EXTRA creepy.

Maybe it's like the Gideon Bible -- there's a picture of your family in every hotel room, everywhere, placed there by lovers of wonderfully creepy children's books.

The power of love...:)))

It appears as if someone framed your children!

It got there from someone who loves you. A very very good sign!
