The HotelHellion is the bratty little kid that terrorizes the hotel, causing trouble and [[HilarityEnsues funny situations]] along the way. Often they are a SpoiledBrat, but they may just be SpoiledSweet rascals.

The TropeMaker is probably {{Literature/Eloise}} from the books of the same name.

Not to be confused with HellHotel.


* James from ''Anime/GregoryHorrorShow'' makes trouble for everyone in the HellHotel, especially his grandfather. And apparently he's meant to inherit the place when he's old enough. God help them.

* ''Film/DunstonChecksIn'' has a chimp instead of a child.
* ''Film/HomeAlone2LostInNewYork'' has Kevin Mc Allister staying in a hotel in New York for part of the movie.

* The TropeMaker is Eloise of the ''Literature/{{Eloise}}'' books, which were later adapted into a movie.
* Non-comedic example: In the Sarah Monette short story [[Literature/TheNecromanticMysteriesOfKyleMurchisonBooth "The Wall of Clouds"]], the protagonist is staying at the "Hotel Chrysalis", which is really a sort of convalescent hospital, and he hears a story about a little girl who used to stay there with her mother. The girl was a total brat who enjoyed causing trouble and used to break the elevator for fun--until one day [[spoiler: she died mysteriously while she was trapped in the elevator waiting for the maintenance man to fix it.]]

* ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' has twins who live in the hotel and cause trouble.
* That kid who changes the sign in front of ''Series/FawltyTowers''.

* Disney/DonaldDuck has to deal with one in the ClassicDisneyShort ''Bellboy Donald''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Stoked}}'' has bratty guest kids who like to cause trouble at the hotel and make messes for the staff to clean up.

* In an adult version, there is a reason many hotels are sometimes reluctant to rent to musicians (rock and metal artists are the most notorious, but rappers are close behind, with many others competing), their entourages, or fans in town for a show. SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll and HookersAndBlow get invoked, and once they are, enough of the people invoking them will become adult {{Hotel Hellion}}s, causing thousands of dollars in damage.
** Convention-goers to some types of conventions also get this, specifically if others attending the convention did it in the past.
*** Such as this [[http://kotaku.com/5890728/a-pokemon-team-was-thrown-out-of-a-hotel-for-throwing-shit example]]
** Fraternities and sororities at the University of Michigan may have trouble renting space after [[http://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor/index.ssf/2015/01/6_u-m_fraternities_soroities_s.html six of them went nuts trashing two resorts]] in January 2015.
** Inverted in the case of Creator/CharlieSheen wherein the Plaza Hotel suite themed after Eloise was reportedly vandalised by the actor in a drug-fuelled rampage shortly after coming out of rehab.
* The older children from ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic'' (namely, Nicholas Hammond, Heather Menzies, Duane Chase, and Angela Cartwright) cheerfully confess to being little terrors at the Hotel Mirabell, where they stayed while filming in and around Salzburg, including swapping shoes (put outside each room for shining) and room service cards. (Charmian Carr, at 21, was staying at the Hotel Bristol with the adults, and Debbie Turner and Kym Karath were too young to be included.)
