You are correct -
However my original point was more along the lines of the NYTs "gaining" circulation by getting a few more hotels to take their paper (paid or otherwise) - which in and of itself does not indicate a true measure of general reader interest.

Well, yes and no. Here's why: Hotel chains spend millions of dollars a year on newspapers. They would not spend that amount of money if their guests did not want the newspapers.
There is no doubt that some newspapers are stepped over as the hotel guests leave their room. On the other hand, the number one complaint that hotels receive is when the papers are late.
