If you put all of the users on seperate switch ports, then would they be
able to snoop each other's traffic? At least the switches that I have seen
prevent this behavior unless you put a particular switch port in "monitor"

As long as all rooms in this hotel are on seperate switch ports, you would
basically be OK even without using VLANs.

Bzzzzztttt... check out dsniff (do a web search).  It allows sniffing 
of anyone on the VLAN of the host or client (unless you get down to 
static ARP entries, yecchhh, do it sparingly).
