    Re: hall

    I would assume you meant one of the passageways that the rooms all come off of. It would never occur to me that you meant the lobby.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
