The writing's on the wall in US hotels

There is a new trend spreading across hotels in the United States that encourages creativity - and vandalism? Well, not exactly.
Several venues across the country have implemented a do-it-yourself theme into guestrooms, allowing visitors to write on the walls at no extra charge from the hotel.
Hotel Keen in Palo Alto, California, has designed their rooms with whiteboard walls, allowing guests to hone their art skills with a dry-erase pen. Hotel Metropolis in San Francisco and NU Hotel in Brooklyn, New York, have also jumped on the bandwagon, adding chalkboard doors and walls to their interior design.
This new trend is ideal for Indians on business travel, who need a place to sketch out presentation ideas or late-night brainstorming, or for those on family vacation whose children get excited at the sight of a colorful felt-tipped marker. Writing on the walls of the hotel room inspires freedom of creativity with no damage to the property.
Hotel Keen prides itself on its modern ways, also offering flat-screen TVs built into the wall, encompassed by the dry-erase walls, complimentary Wi-Fi access and sleek white and silver furnishings.
