A newly remodeled room is seen at the Shalimar Hotel, known as a love hotel, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013. Like about a third of city’s 180 hotels that rent rooms by the hour, mostly for amorous rendezvous, the Shalimar is trading its oversized beds and bondage-ready chairs for proper couches, functional desks and other business-friendly furnishings.
