Storyline

A newly married young couple are anxious not to be recognized as bride and groom so they decide to arrive separately at the hotel. Accordingly, the bridegroom wires the hotel to reserve a room and then leaves, his wife following on the next train. The hotel proprietor becomes rattled by a sudden rush of business, and upon receiving the bridegroom's telegram, assigns him to room 23, marking the number on the telegram, but neglecting to enter the reservation in the proper way. The result is, that when another wire for a room reservation comes from Eliza Merrill, a somewhat mature lady and a delegate to the convention now in session, the cashier makes the mistake of assigning the same room to her. The bridegroom arrives, goes to his room with his luggage and then leaves for a little stroll. Meanwhile Eliza arrives and is shown the same room. She takes immediate possession and commands the bell boy to remove the other person's baggage. When the bridegroom returns and finds Eliza in ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A very slight idea is developed into a very amusing character comedy
21 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Bannister Merwin has, it seems, a very fertile mind. Seeing pictures like this suggests to one that their author is lucky in happening to be at certain places when interesting or amusing things take place and sees them. This is not the way, though, that art is made. The observation is only the seed; imagination furnishes the final result. The seed is thrown on every mind impartially, the harvest is given only to the fertile mind. In this picture, a very slight idea is developed into a very amusing character comedy to which a large audience gave emphatic approval. Miss Alice Washburn plays the chief role as an efficient spinster and she is very funny. The situation comes from the assigning of the same room at a hotel to this woman, who is a delegate to a convention, and also to a young newly-married man, played by Edward Boulden. Elsie McLeod plays the bride. Harry Tomlinson and Frank A. Lyons also have roles. It is a desirable comedy offering, a good fun maker and will be liked everywhere. - The Moving Picture World, August 31, 1912
