There has been progress in the last couple of weeks, it just hasn't all gone in the direction originally planned so there's no stable release because I haven't gotten around to bug fixes yet.
The matron/dominatrix NPC is now complete-ish, but is still buggy - I was a bit too ambitious with one of her attack sequences and it got a bit out of hand, and is now causing me loads of headaches trying to sort out.
Anyway, soon I will make a blog post about her so you'll find out all the juicy details then.
That's not the only thing I've done at all, but the other stuff I have done is either hush-hush for now or too small individually to bother mentioning.
I'm going to aim to have a public release of the hotel region in time for Christmas. But I am also aware that everything takes longer than planned so please don't kill me if that doesn't happen.
As always thanks for all your kind words of support!
