We like to keep it fun but informative here at HotelChatter so our newest series, What is This? is devoted to odd-looking items in hotel rooms that upon first glance look as if they serve only a decorative purpose. But everything happens for a reason, right? And we're here to tell you what these things really do.

When we were shown around the suites at the all-inclusive Secrets Wild Orchid in Montego Bay, we knew the dark square on the wall was some sort of door. But it was too small to be a closet, and because it was just behind the front door, that wouldn’t have made sense anyway. Unable to stand the curiosity any longer, we flung open the door and found…nothing. Nothing but a big empty space. We had to investigate further.

Jamaica has been on fiyah more than usual, that’s because this year marks the 50th anniversary of the island's independence from Britain. Official Jubilee celebrations started this week, but will be absolutely bananas this weekend until to Emancipation Day on August 6th. Last month, the antics were warmed up with Reggaefest and many celebs came to jam, including headliner Nicki Minaj.

We thought she would have stayed at the Ritz-Carlton, Rose Hall or the tony Half Moon Bay, but no, she went the all-inclusive route and made the all-suite, adults-only Secrets Wild Orchid Resort her home. Sure, she stayed in the Preferred Club’s Presidential Suite, but we kind of dig she picked this accessible-to-the-people, two-year old resort.

Minaj and her entourage were seen being escorted to the luxury suite via golf cart, were she looked pretty tame in a demure floral outfit (but with some crazy orange wedges).

Nicki Minaj Must Have Forgotten Her Pants Up In Her Room At The W London

We didn't think the rooms at W Hotels were known for being sprawlingly huge or anything, but it looks like Nicki Minaj managed to lose her pants somewhere inside her suite at the W London. Barbie, Roman, Nicki, whatever you want to call her, walked out of her hotel on Monday in a slightly ridiculous ensemble consisting of a red PVC jacket, military boots, black polka dot tights and a set of bondage straps wrapped around her mid section as a skirt.

Maybe the star got a little inspiration after reading passages from Naomi Alderman's porn story, which admittedly fetishizes the W as a sort of sex-charged epicenter of Leicester Square. That must be it.

Or, more likely, Minaj simply ended up here because The Dorchester (and probably a few other places) didn't want her staying with them anymore, and realized she could get away with more by staying at the W. Logical, really.

Willow Smith Brightens Up The Mandarin Oriental

Anyone who happened to be shopping around Columbus Circle on Monday in NYC had a good chance of seeing pop singer Willow Smith. Several paps caught the young star stepping out of her hotel, the Mandarin Oriental, looking cool as ever. Despite rumors about her parents' split, Willow kept up appearances with some leopard print, turquoise fur, and awesome yellow highlights.

It just so happens that today is the debut of Willow's new music video, a collaboration with Nicki Minaj—which might explain her extreme fashion choices. Unlike Nicki, however, Willow has yet to be booted from a hotel. She's only eleven, after all. So many years of celebrity hotel trashing ahead of her!

Rapper Barbie Nicki Minaj slayed us last year with her guest rap on the Kanye West song, "Monster" but it looks like she's been battling some of her own demons recently, namely her assistant.

TMZ reports that Safaree Samuels struck Minaj with a suitcase (ouch!) after arguing by the outdoor infinity pool at the Hotel Palomar Dallas.

According to the police report, Nicki followed Samuels up to the room they were sharing, to make sure he didn't take any of her stuff. Nicki was in the room looking into her suitcase, which had some of Samuels' belongings, when she says he "grabbed the suitcase and as he was picking it up, he shoved the suitcase across [Nicki's] chin and lower lip."

Celebs Spent Time Hotel Hopping For the Grammys Last Night

J-Hud gets warmed up at the Beverly Hilton before her Aretha tribute.

Last night's Grammys gave us some great performances—Lady Gaga—and some missteps—Xtina almost falling on her face. Of course, it also means there was tons of hotel action, since the music industry swarmed Los Angeles for the awards ceremony and the bashes that come along with it.

· Celebs came out for Clive Davis and the Recording Academy's Pre-Grammy Gala at the Beverly Hilton. Cee Lo Green—before donning his peacock suit—R. Kelly, Glee's Matthew Morrison and Jennifer Hudson performed, while peeps like Katy Perry, John Mayer and Miley Cyrus also attended, according to MTV.

Nicki Minaj Gets Booted from The Dorchester in London

It's official--The Dorchester is THE hotel for crazy celeb behavior. Here's yet another tale to add to the collection.

Hip-hop darling Nicki Minaj always seems to grab attention, whether it be for her Lady Gaga-esque ensembles, crazy wigs or fierce rhymes. But when she checked into the Dorchester in London, it wasn't her zany fashion or singing that was causing controversy.

It was her unruly barbz, or fans. They flooded the hotel in hopes of getting their own "Moment 4 Life." But things got outta hand when the barbz scrawled graffiti on the Dorchester's elevator. We can only imagine how officials at the oh-so-proper Dorchester reacted. Then, a fight broke out that required an ambulance to come along.
