The hotel is only providing the low-level mapping between userland and
the physical space; GNU will be the userspace, and at least half a venue
is the people in it. So arguably that could make this a proper
GNU/Linux venue? ;)
This is a PR issue -- a matter of what message is transmitted to the
public. Many people have got the idea that GNU is a part of Linux.
If the people who run the hotel are willing to CALL it the GNU/Linux
Hotel during the period that people sign up for the event, then it
would be ok.
